Ravin’ Girls Ep.15: Full (Ritual) Circle
Welcome to Episode 15, where we cover Chapters 44-48 of The Raven Boys!
Here we are, at the end of the first book of the Raven Cycle and the end of our first season of The Ravin’ Girls! Join us as the earth shakes, bad guys quake, animals stampede and visions take heed. Adam makes his sacrifice and gains a leafy new best friend and Ronan admits that Chainsaw is a cliffhanger ending–leading us directly into Season 2: The Dream Thieves. Oh, and Shannon drops a piece of knowlege that has Nievita questioning everything she thought she knew about their friendship. Revelations and new beginnings, indeed!
No Deep Dive, but we do have an informal discussion about the podcast and Seasons 1 & 2, starting at 56:12 (depending on player)
