This book was given to me for a fair and honest review
Oh Maggie your writing is beautiful. You could describe a dead bug and make it sound amazing. I just have a hard time grasping the storyline. Probably because I have never read anything like it. It was refreshing but difficult to follow at times.
I wish I would have read a little more spark with Blue’s romantic endeavors. (I’ll leave it at that. You will just have to read it to find out what I mean by that ;))
The story starts off where the first ones left off. Cabeswater has mysteriously disappeared and Adam is acting very strange since the ritual. Ronan Lynch we learn a lot more about. Which is cool because I really like him. He is plagued by nightmares that involve strange creatures. He has the ability to “steal” from his dreams but never has the ability tot control what he will dream about until he meets Kavinsky. The crazy hot head Evo driving asshole. He shows him a thing or two and gives Ronan the ability to dream up what he wants.
There is also the Gray man whom we don’t learn about his true identity until later in the book. He is mysterious but I really liked his no nonsense character.
Like I said I will have to shelve these and re-read when the third installment comes out sometime next year. But I am glad that I read them. Maggie is a pen Goddess hehe.
I have to admit there were times when I wanted to rate the book a one and then there were times when it deserved a 5. I think the problem was that it was such a original and bold storyline that it took half of the book to grasp the concept but then I found myself bored.
Maggie did deliver in the end though. I was excited to find out the twists and turns that happened along the way. I think it would fair to say that this book would most likely get better if read again.
As for the story the book summary has little to do with it. Which is sad because I was very intrigued by the summary. It sounded like it was going to be a really cool ya paranormal romance but really turned out to be a urban fantasy that kinda had similarities to The Mortal Instruments series with a Stephen King twist.
Story follows a 16 year old named Blue and four boys that are members of a pretentious school named Aglionby aka Raven Boys. The relationship with the boys are fascinating. I found I enjoyed reading about them more than Blue.
Blue’s family is physic and has always been told that is she kisses her true love they will die.
That is where is starts getting weird. They all set out to find the Welsh King that is buried somewhere on the ley line aka corpse road. Known for it’s magic and energy, very strange occurrences happen…and Noah wow didn’t see that coming.
The more I think about this book the more I really want to reread it to have a better understanding of the first half.
Thank you Maggie for a enjoyable series.
In the few seconds he stood gazing at her beauty, he battled with himself. His urges, he knew from experience, could be overpowering. The last thing he wanted was to scare away this delicate butterfly he had temporary captured.
WOW NOW WHAT A WAY TO START A BOOK!!!!!….but what the hell happened the second half?????
I seriously had a case of dejavu in this story. I was praying “please be a vampire, please be a vampire, please be a vampire…sigh…but alas he was a RICH DOMINEERING BILLIONAIRE…BOOOOO That ship has sailed a long time ago! Ok Ok so has vampires but they at least have immortality to look forward to hehe.
Emily did nail it on the head when she described Tanner… *swoon*. Dark hair, blue eyes…..LOVE LOVE LOVE when I get to showcase my favorite…Ian Somerhalder….sigh.
I mean helloooooo stalk much????
I really really really wanted to give this 5 stars but I’m exhausted with the 20 something virgins and the rich handsome bachelors. I have not given up hope with this series though because Emily has a way of captivating her audience even in a novella.
Crossing fingers here.
It took me a long time to read this book. I guess you could say I was savoring it.
Addison again your words haunt me, seep into me where I can not feel or think of anything else.
Skya actually warmed up to me in this one. Again I think Logan and Gage are pathetic in following her around like a puppy dog but the moments they shared was bitter sweet.
Marshall on the other hand……..YIKES that man is sexy as hell.
Sadly I feel this series should have ended a few books ago. I am looking forward to the adult series to follow (I know I’m a gluten for punishment). I blame Marshall.
Can’t wait to read more about Laken and Coop in their series as well.
Thank you Allison for an outstanding series!
