Source: eLibrary

Genre: YA, Paranormal

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
My Rating:

Book three of this series adds on to the search for Glendower with the search for Blu's mother. We've got even more characters, some caves, and a bit of bonding with the characters.  Some questions get answered and the waters get muddied.

On the story...
I enjoyed this installment a bit better than the last.  There weren't as many mysteries and a bookstagrammer really prompted me to look harder at the characters.  I could appreciate their relationships and interactions with each other.  I think looking at it with that lens allowed me to enjoy the book more.  But to be clear, I don't care anything about Glendower or Cadeswater at this point.  I've lost interest.  I like the attention to detail from Ms. Steifvater and the characters, even the minor ones, are truly so well-developed. This was a pretty good read.

On the narrator...
If I liked this series a bit more, I'd switch to the book instead of the audio.  Mr. Patton continues to a great job giving a different clear voice to each character and by this time, there are a ton of characters.  I just don't care for him as a narrator.  It's just a personal preference, I guess.

If I just focus on the characters, I enjoy this series a lot more.  I don't really care much about the plot.
