"I know you feel anxious on sunny days," Bryde remarked. 
"You haven't said it out loud. You barely think it. 
They love the sunny days, after all. They love a naked sky with a savage white sun set in it like a killer jewel. It doesn't worry them. It's a string of rainy days that makes them grow languid and unsteady. Energy draining, depression eating the marrow out of their bones. Rainy days aren't for them. Do you think a tree hates a rainy day?"

MAGGIE, I am in absolute awe of the way you write. To quote BTS, 'smooth like butter'. It's like drinking a really nice chocolate milkshake, it just goes down so smoothly and it's so easy to drink some more (that is such a bad analogy but it's fine hahaha). The way she writes characters is so unbelievably powerful. AHHHHH, I can't get enough of her writing about these characters and the stuff they get up to.

I don't have much else to say except Ronan was always my favourite so I'm so glad we get to explore his relationships, particularly with his brothers. Such an interesting dynamic has been built up over The Raven Cycle series and I'm so glad to see it here again. The story itself didn't affect me as much as some of those books but it was still really intriguing, very much making me want to pick up the next book. Also, making me want to reread The Raven Cycle which could be dangerous for meeeeee.
