    Review: The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater (2016)

    “Strange he hadn’t had a premonition of what this place would become to him all those months ago. But maybe not. So much of magic—of power, in general—required belief as a prerequisite.”

    The Raven King, Maggie Stiefvater

    Rating: ★★★★
    Genre: Urban fantasy, YA
    Categories: M/M, M/F, YA, multiple narrators, wizards/magicians, mythology, ghosts

    Content Warnings (highlight to read): N/A

    Description: A sharply-written YA series about slowly uncovering the magic underneath the mundane day-to-day world. The series follows Blue, slightly put-upon daughter of a house of psychics, and her adventures with the Raven Boys—private school boys with their own evolving mysterious pasts and destinies. Boys that could be kings, men that might be trees, magic dream worlds, ghosts, fortune-telling, high-maintenance murderers, cars, and bees?—There’s a lot there.

    “For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.”

    Upcoming Release: Smoke Signals

    Meredith’s latest book, Smoke Signals, a charming M/M novella featuring a haughty dragon and a very tired CS rep, releases tomorrow! You can get it from her publisher, Less Than Three, for 15% off up until the release date.

    Mike St. George figured that working customer support during the Black Friday sale at SmokeSignals, a game distribution company, would just feature the usual sort of problem customers. He wasn’t expecting an aristocratic, self-centered dragon to demand the company send someone to his house to install games in exchange for gold. And he definitely wasn’t expecting that to somehow put him in charge of working with and protecting the digital side of the dragon’s hoard of games. But with a possible promotion in his future, Mike’s ready to take on anything. And while the blue-blooded Zali’thurg might be egotistical and prideful, Mike’s wrangled worse customers on a regular basis. At least this one’s cute, albeit in an ‘apex predator’ sort of way.

    It’s geeky and cute, with a totally useless lizard and a super sweet ending. You can read early reviews over at Goodreads!
