One thing that kept me reading The Girl and The Raven were the twists and turns throughout the book. Just when I thought that everything had been revealed something new was added to the mix, adding a new twist and making me reconfigure my thoughts and assumptions. The last few chapters of The Girl and The Raven did not hold back on anything. I could not finish the book fast enough, needing to know what was going to happen and worrying over what would happen to the characters involved.
A book about witches, demons and an ultimate choice between good and evil? Also, ravens? YES, PLEASE!
* I adored Lucy. She was sassy and smart without being helpless and swoony at the sight of a man, although there is a bit of insta-love. I love that she can take care of herself. At one point she says, "The point is, I don't need a knight - shining or otherwise.", which I absolutely agree with.
* The plot was kick-ass. I got immediately sucked into this world where both the witches and the demons were spectacular, and their fight for Lucy was page-turning.
