Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)
Such a fabulous book! I totally love the author's writing style in this series - it is just beautifully descriptive. The story has mystery, romance, magic and lots of humor. Now that Blue's mother, Maura, has disappeared, Lily and her Raven boys, Gansey, Adam, Ronan and Noah, along with Mr. Gray, the hit man who is her mother's boyfriend, are searching caves for her and for the three sleepers, one of whom, should not be woken and one of whom is Glendower, the king. They find a cave on a farm in an old tower that the farmer says is cursed and within it they find a grave containing Gwelliian, one of Glendower's daughters who was buried there 600 years ago but did not sleep. She is a witch and is rather insane from lack of sleep among other things. The friendship among Lily and the boys is a big part of the story as is the forbidden love between Blue and Gansey. Many of the adult characters are also fleshed out more in this book and I enjoyed that the author managed to make the hit man a likeable person. This book is just so fantastic and wonderful! I am looking forward to the next book. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
