(mild spoilers)
SpoilerI'm just not a fan of multiple perspectives when the stories don't intersect until the last 40 pages. Also the chapters were very very short and too many of them ended on cliffhangers, so it was really hard to get invested in any of the stories since they kept cutting off.

I will say, listening to this wasn't the best idea because I found it a little hard to follow in the beginning. Though that might also be because it's been forever since I read The Raven Cycle. But Ronan is one of my favorites, and I enjoyed getting to see his world expanded. And I'll still probably read the rest of the trilogy when they come out! I'm intrigued to see what happens next.

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.
