I love Maggie Stiefvater’s writing so. much. I obviously love fantasy as a genre, but the way Stiefvater writes it is unlike any other writer I know. It’s part of her stories—an important part—but they still feel so <i>real</i> and close to the real world. I’m often turned off by (what I feel to be gratuitous) grittiness or violence in stories, but Stiefvater always makes me care enough about the characters that I’ll power through those parts. I loved the Ronan/Adam scenes, though they were few and far between, and I enjoyed getting to know Declan better (shockingly, he’s not nearly as annoying as he seemed). However, I definitely missed the characters and found family from the The Raven Cycle.
