The Raven Cycle left many wanting more from this universe of Maggie Stiefvater and the author has chosen not to disappoint. In Call Down The Hawk Stiefvater dives further into The Raven’s Cycles most interesting character, Ronan Lynch.
With the book existing sometime after the close of the The Raven Cycle series, we are faced with a very lonely Ronan Lynch. Left behind at his Barns home by his friends, whose lives have moved forward without him, Ronan’s most intriguing quality, his power, locks him to his home and the ley line power that exists there.
Since the close of the Raven Cycle Ronan’s life has got a lot more complex than his loneliness, his power is taking a toll, and Ronan is dealing with more questions than answers in his struggle to survive.
From the blurb;
‘The Dreamers walk among us… is anyone safe? Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams.
Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it.
Carmen Farooq-Land is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer, and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person, and the damage that their dreams can do. But those are nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed.’
Stiefvater takes the fascinating concept of Ronan Lynch’s dreaming power, the quality that makes him so captivating, and expands upon it. With the introduction of Jordan Hennessy, an artist with a messy past, Stiefvater grounds Ronan’s abilities. With the explosive entrance of Carmen Farooq-Lane Stiefvater introduces an underworld of mystic.
What could have been a rather flat series transforms into a fantastic, edge of your seat, read and leaves readers desperate for more.
We cannot wait to see where Stiefvater will take this universe.
