The Raven Cycle draws to a close as Richard Gansey embarks on the final leg of his quest to unearth the sleeping Welsh King, Owen Glendower, and gain his favour. Adam is still tightly bound to Cabeswater even as the magical forest is corrupted by dark forces. Nor has the threat that the outside world will discover that Ronan is the Greywaren entirely abated. And Noah seems to be fading, becoming ever more ghostly and unpredictable, the merest shadow of his living self. As Blue and the Raven Boys search, two predictions hang over their heads: Gansey will die sometime this year, and Blue will kill her true love if she kisses him; it seems inevitable that the two will intersect.
