The Raven King by Maggie Stievfater
My reading slowed down. I kept going back and rereading, postponing the inevitable day when I would have to read the final chapter, the final paragraph, the final sentence, the final word.
This series is magnificent. The prose is gorgeous. The characters are so well delineated that they become "people you want to hang out with". The cycle is as sweeping and thrilling and achingly wondrous as I knew that it would be.
Maggie Stiefvater's vividly painted palette of words continues to haunt me. Thank you Maggie, for creating The Raven Cycle.
