Could not finish this book

This story line was impossible to follow, and there were a lot of gross scenes in the book - dead animals, etc. I could not keep reading this book.
This author's Raven Boys series was one of the best I have read...

Worth Repeated Listenings

The poetic language of this novel is made even more powerful by the natural rhythm of the narration. You can’t help but get pulled in and feel like you’re there witnessing each scene unfold. Stiefvater always creates magnificent characters, but these narrators breathe life into them. A book that transitions beautifully from the page to audio.
