As with many books my Spines with Wines compatriot Kristin begs me to read, I should have started The Raven Cycle long before I actually got around to it. From Welsh legends to mysterious boarding school boys, cryptic prophecies and one heck of a jaw-dropping twist, I definitely plan to finish this series sooner rather than later. ( )

I liked this book. It's pretty elaborate so it needs the readers full attention. I think I may have been a little to distracted by life while reading it, or I might have liked it even more. I still enjoyed it and would like to continue the series. It has lots of paranormal/supernatural elements, lots of psychic readings and magic rituals.

I started to read this book once and then about 15% of the way DNF'd it and didn't really think about it again, but my best friend told me to pick it back up again and read it. Since I trust her opinions I did that. While the writing wasn't bad and the characters were likeable (most of them anyway), I feel like this book just took me so, so, so long to read. The story telling is beautiful though and it does leave you wanting more. I'm pretty sure I'll continue with this series at some point. I would recommend this book, just make sure you set a lot of time aside. 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

Epigraph
Deep into that darkness, long I stood

there, wondering, fearing,

Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever

dared to dream before...

~Edgar Allan Poe
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

~Oscar Wilde

Though she is from a family of clairvoyants, Blue Sargent's only gift seems to be that she makes other people's talents stronger, and when she meets Gansey, one of the Raven Boys from the expensive Aglionby Academy, she discovers that he has talents of his own--and that together their talents are a dangerous mix.… (more)
