Opal (The Raven Cycle #4.5) Reviews
Well. This had me confused in parts because it’s been so long since I read the series and now I’ll have to prioritize my reread.
However, I loved seeing things from Opal’s POV and of course Ronan and Adam and my sweetness, Chainsaw.
I’ve never wanted the Ronan books more.
I love it! This is amazing, its just so short, why is this not longer?
The setting of the novella is the summer after the incident at Cabeswater, Only Adam, Ronan and Orphan girl are present in this biok, even at that its amazing to read about these three adapting to regular life especially Orphan girl.
Opal(i.e Orphan girl) is the narrator of this book, its so cool been in her head, her thoughts about human life is hilarious, even the way she views Adam and Ronan.
The only thing stopping me from ...more

WE'RE GETTING THE PYNCH BOOK WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.
BEAUTIFUL ADAM AND WONDERFUL RONAN AND OPAL AND JUST ASDFGHJKL!
4/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
"He had always been dying in his dreams, or getting small pieces cut off him, or being pitted against faceless gunmen. Nuclear bombs exploded in his hands and fish broke through windows to ruin sofas and myriad bodies showed up in myriad driveways. Not all of his dreams were terrible, but that made them collectively worse, not better."
Didn't know I needed this. Obviously not going to be writing a full review, as this is a short story, and I don't really feel as though it's necess ...more
(5++++++++ Stars for Adam and Ronan)
"It won't be what you imagined, but it'll be just as good."
Holy hell have I missed these characters. This is only 30 pages, but Ronan and Adam are just as dynamic and interesting as they are in TRC. There's hints of both of them maturing and healing, as well as making plans for the future, and it's amazing.
But-- and I know I'm the minority here... I don't love Opal?
I think she's funny. I think she's quirky. She's definitely unique and seeing her p ...more

#3 Blue Lily, Lily Blue ★★★★★
#4 The Raven King ★★★★★
#4.5 Opal ★★★★★
How could I possibly, in any way, shape or form, give this less than 5 stars? I've become so obsessed with this series and these wonderful characters, and all this did was make me crave the Ronan trilogy even more than I already was.
Opal is precious, bizarre, hilarious, and a legitimate treasure. That said, the real gem in this story is watching Ronan and Adam interact and try to m ...more

“She loved him the best when he was very sad or very serious or very happy. ”
You all, I can’t even begin to put into words how good it felt to be back in this world. And Opal is such an amazing protagonist to see the world through. She’s so curious, and so precious. My favorite secret. I loved animal days and I loved dream days. I loved it all.
“…and something about when Ronan made him...more
Ohhh my heart is very very full right now. Like it's not freaking secret that I ADORE this series and this was perfect. I don't even generally like novellas (or paying half my liver and soul for like 35 pages awffk) but THIS IS MY FAVOURITE AUTHOR. MY FAVOURITE SERIES. MY FAVOURITE RAVEN BOY. (Ronan.) MY FAAAAVOURITE while I wait wretchedly for the Ronan trilogy. And it. was. perfect.
(Except obviously too short. But you knew that was coming right?!)
It's just a tiny snapshot into (a) Opal's mind, ...more
