Cosa rende questa serie così speciale?
Per tante persone la risposta può essere lo stile di scrittura stupendo o la storia d'amore o la fantasia inesauribile di Maggie Stiefvater, ma per me è l'amicizia tra i protagonisti.

"It was just that there was something newly powerful about this assembled family in the car. They were all growing up and into each other like trees striving together for the sun."

È raro leggere libri young adult in cui l'amicizia è sullo stesso gradino dell'amore romantico, ma qui l'amore tra amici è addirittura messo su un livello più alto, ed è bellissimo.

This book is the perfect ending for this indescribably beautiful series. It is just so different from other "young adult" books. It is a peculiar pearl in a see of dust. The characters feel so real and I couldn 't help but to fall in love with all of them and with their impossible, breath-taking task to find the sleeping king. I will not spoiler the esit of this task but I will say this: each one of them will find a inner King in themselves as will enyone who shall read this series with a heart opened to the possibility of being each of this characters. The only thing left to say is Thank you Maggie Stiefvater for this wonderful adventure

I loved the series.
Magic. Dreams. Love.
Stiefvater's narration is always a pleasure to read, she tells without having to use too many words and explanations. The reader simply understands every subtle unsaid word tasting its sweetness.
Every fan of the Raven Cycle is gonna feel real empty without the Gangsey!

When you recognize a book is not perfect, but you are able to look past the flaws and plot holes, and allow the characters to live inside you for months after you've finished reading it...that's when you know a book is great.

5.0 su 5 stelle All Conclusions to Good Series Are Disappointing 29 aprile 2016
Di booklyreads - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This review contains no major spoilers.

I knew what I wanted from The Raven King: more magic, more friendship, more Cabeswater. I was worried over who might die and – more importantly – if my precious babies would have a chance at remaining lifelong friends, considering their socioeconomic differences and the different futures they craved. Would Adam make it to college? Would Ronan? Would Gansey die or - also bad - go on to be a grown-up President Cell Phone? If Blue couldn’t make it out of Henrietta, would her friends ever come back to visit, or would shame tear them apart? Et cetera.

I didn’t care much about Glendower, magic wishes, or the caricature villains that have consistently been the weak point in the series. Having finished the book, I feel like Stiefvater had the same focuses that I had, which has triggered mixed results from readers.

The Raven King is the creepiest of all four books. It deals with literal and metaphorical darkness throughout, and Stiefvater pulls out her best metaphors and similes to create a spine-chilling atmosphere. She paints settings like theater backdrops. In fact, there’s one memorable scene that takes place in a literal theater. Adam enters Aglionby, and “[i]nstead of returning to one of the academic buildings, he [slides] down the stairs to the theater’s side door.” As he walks down the hall (underground, alone, dark, creepy), he passes “many-legged animals made of stacked old chairs, strange silhouettes of stage-set trees, and depthless oceans of black curtain [that hang] over everything.” Nothing’s happened so far, but you know it’s going to, and it makes a great punch once it does.

Then there’s the friendship/romantic bits. In one scene, Mr. Gray says, “I’ve been thinking a lot about Adam Parrish and his band of merry men.” Maura responds, “That’s a strange way of putting it. I would have said Richard Gansey and his band of merry men.” Depending on how you look at the story, different characters become central – which is indicative of how rich the inner lives of these characters are. They all have full arcs, and Stievater for the most part balances them beautifully, never shining one character too far in the spotlight and dimming out the others.

Just as in previous books, however, the antagonists are underdeveloped and ineffectual. Too many chapters were devoted to villains I didn’t care about, and I could have spent more time with the protagonists I’ve loved for over 1,000 pages. Nevertheless, ‘the book could have been longer’ seems like the best of all complaints.

My second reaction to finishing the book – after the immediate adrenaline rush – was disappointment. Disappointment might be inevitable with so many moving pieces of such a long series – especially when many of those moving pieces are so near and dear to my heart.

Now, however, I’m three days into my book hangover and I still can’t start another novel. The conclusion offered me the best thing it could: Hope. There's somewhere to go at the end, more things to imagine. The gangsey's futures mattered to Stiefvater in the same way they mattered to me. Ironically, this is not 'all there is.' The gangsey is going to stay in my head for years, and I know I’ll reread the entire series to spot how all the different plots parallel and intersect. I think that’s the best thing a concluding book can make you want to do.

3.0 su 5 stelle My least favorite of the cycle 4 maggio 2016
Di Suzy Quinn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I'd been waiting for this book all year, and I wanted to love it. Unfortunately, although the prose was as lovely as usual from Stiefvater, the plot and pacing needed work. The ending felt rushed and depended on hastily introduced, new magic rules that should have been established earlier in the series. The ending also involved a major character who was only introduced in this book and suddenly became best friends with Gansey and super-important out of nowhere. He had a corny sidekick, RoboBee, that took me out of the story with its odd name. The stories of some characters were wrapped up to a satisfactory extent, but others, like Maura and Mr. Gray and Noah, felt forgotten. Some of the magic began to feel silly to me, rather than mysterious and otherworldly. I finished the book because I'd invested so much in the series and because the prose at the page-level was still captivating in places. Overall though, the book made me feel like the author didn't plan out the whole series ahead of time and decided to insert certain magic rules and characters belatedly to make the plot work out.

So this is it. All the research, all the dreaming, all the tarot readings, all the cave searches have lead to this point. After uncovering Glendower’s daughter in Blue Lily, Lily Blue the Raven Boys plus one Blue Sergeant start The Raven King with the mundane task of attending school. It’s quickly apparent, though, that all they’ve worked towards is going to come to a necessary conclusion as their magical forest of Cabeswater appears to be infused with a darkness that’s consuming everything in its path. As they struggle to figure out what’s causing this unmaking, the friends must also acknowledge the undeniable truth: Gansey is foreseen to die within the year. With everything set to come crashing down, one thing is certain: the time to find Glendower is NOW.

While it’s natural to form ideas about how a series is going to go, and to see the predictability of the end of a series after all the buildup of the other books, The Raven King really didn’t proceed in any way that I expected it to. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I was pretty happy with the fact that I couldn’t predict what would happen next because, boring. But I felt like this also left me with more of a sense of incompleteness upon finishing the book. I felt like we were opened up to a whole new possibility of adventures for our characters none of which we’ll see on page unless Maggie Stiefvater decides to write a continuation to the series a few years down the line when everyone has grown up some more (hint hint: I’d love to see this happen).

When I step back and think about how this book was ended, the culmination of the journey, I felt like there was a big comment being made about the after. So you reach your dreams, what next? Whether or not they find Glendower, all the characters were kind of on that “what next” train. In some cases they’re re-evaluating the plans they thought they wanted to accomplish after Glendower. Most of them realize that things aren’t necessarily over after you’ve obtained the thing(s) you’ve wanted for so long.

If previous books in the series have dealt with secrets, The Raven King deals with truths. The revealing of truths either verbally or through action and the realization that many of your fears can stem from not knowing how others will take your truths. Gansey, Ronan, Adam, Noah, and Blue all have a truth about themselves that is acknowledged in some way. This series really boils down to these relationships. Glendower is a great adventure, but it’s made better by being with those who know the true you.

As I said earlier, there are a lot of pieces to The Raven King that are left open-ended. I would have liked a bit more solid closure on some things, but overall, in regards to our main fivesome, I was happy with the possibilities laid out before them. The Raven King is a worthy send-off.

The Raven Cycle is definitely a series that needs to be read again and again. Knowing how everything plays out, I look forward to going back and finding all the little clues I may have missed the first time around. For me, this is my favorite series of Maggie Stiefvater’s. I cannot recommend it highly enough if you haven’t picked it up, please do. Now.

To be honest, I came away from this book a little disappointed. The pacing of it felt really off -- things that should have been really important were sped through. I felt that both Blue's relationship with Gansey and the climactic scene (which has been foreshadowed since practically page 1 of the first book) both went really fast and was robbed of its ultimate meaning through a rather unclear example of deus ex machina. I also was confused about the sudden prominence of Henry Cheng in this book. He seems like a nice enough person, but . . . was he just a plot device? Some kind of metaphor about how to live with magic? After three books' worth of the Raven Boys and Blue, Henry seemed shoehorned in at best.

This is not to say that I didn't enjoy The Raven King. I did, especially the developing relationship between Adam and Ronan. And though I know others have felt that the Big Bad was almost comical, taking a strange and rather too specific form, I found it (and the descriptions of its evildoings) absolutely terrifying. And of course there's just the immensely satisfying experience of being in the world the author has created.

I think this book ultimately felt rushed -- there were a few plot points that were never tied up (Gray Man, what happened? Also, lingering questions about Blue's curse, and Glendower, and Gwenllian, and Blue's mom, and . . .) and the important scenes and relationships were not given as much time as they deserved. I'm sad for my time in Henrietta to end. I wish we could have spent a little longer.

The Good

My goodness this one is hard to review especially trying to avoid any spoilers so it will be very vague on purpose. OK so I didn't even want to start this series because the blurb in the first one suggests that a character will die and I'm just not alright with main characters dying so I decided not to even put myself through that. I did though. I read it. I will say that this series ended on a note that felt right. It is an amazing journey with some very well developed characters that continue to grow in each installment. This one shows different sides of characters that you think you already know by this point. You don't know though. Not until you've read this one.

I loved how every thread was brought together and we got some great wrap ups. I love how there were still surprises and crazy twists to throw at us. I love how even if you went into this expecting something, it was still a little shocking when it happened. The story moves at a wonderful pace. We get a more in depth look at characters that were just briefly mentioned previously. I was a fan of the addition of Henry especially since there was a lot less of Noah.

Then there's Ronan and how he is so much more open. How he's accepting Blue and they're bonding a bit. Their little moments together were some of my favorites. There's Gansey with his NEED to wake the sleeping King. He has the drive to accomplish something more and then the ability to realize his life is already something more. Adam has a huge character realization for which I was glad. I especially loved seeing him let go of his past hurts. Blue...I don't think there's any way that I would've held it together the way she did.

The Bad

The repetition of certain things, while they were in essence proving a point, got a little on my nerves after a while.

The Romance

There was some great romantic parts in this one. Again, no spoilers, but it was big on romantic love, new beginnings, and life-long friendships.

Conclusion

Raven King is a great conclusion to a magical series. It was full of drama, action, magic, character growth, and mystery. It was everything you expect and everything you couldn't possibly. Definitely recommended.
