DON'T MISS THE REST BOOKS OF THE SERIES
I don't know how to write this review. Honestly, I have almost ten books I need to review yet I insisted on writing this one. What should I comment first? Maggie's poetic writing which I have also met in Laini Taylor's books? Or the fact that this book was a rollercoaster of emotions, friendships and horrors?
Following the events of "Blue Lily, Lily Blue", the boys and Blue must band together once more in order to find the King and solve the mystery behind Gabeswater. But something sinister is also at the same time destoying the magical forest and many become affected by it.
The plot moves between all the heroes and villains of the story; Gansey and Blue, the ladies of Blue's family, the Gray Man as also Ronan and Adam. The scenes in some parts are dark and terryfying and there were moments where I teared up from what happened to some of the main characters, as also what feelings some other characters discovered.
It was almost real, how easily Maggie brought these characters to life with all their hopes and flaws, dreams and terrors. Ronan's comments were stellar and the relevations about Blue seemed as if they had jumped out of a dream.
I'll miss those characters, but they have gained a special place in my heart and fangirling mind, just like all the others. ;)
