Ravin' Girls SpEp: Call Down the Hawk Full Novel

Welcome to our episode covering Maggie Stiefvater’s first novel in the new Dreamer Trilogy, CALL DOWN THE HAWK!!! Can you tell we’re excited?!

All of the Lynch boys are in trouble (what else is new?), mysterious art forgeries and forgers tantalize in the Fairy Market, dreamers and dreamed objects are hunted, strange voices come out of the dark, and the fires of the apocalypse burn on the horizon. Join us as we discuss what worked best for us and what didn’t, funniest moments and favorite new characters, agonize over our biggest questions, review our past predictions, and reveal our most head-explody moments. Would we choose to be dreamers if we had the chance? Listen and find out!

NOTES: No Deep Dive, just lots and lots of wild theorizing as to what happens next

We’re Shannon and Nievita, and we’re the Ravin’ Girls! Welcome to our Raven Cycle podcast, where we analyze Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle as a cycle, taking a look at the connections and foreshadowing running throughout all four books. We dissect the themes, discuss the arcs of these wonderfully complex characters, and take “Deep Dives” on the origins, folklore, mythology, history, and fandom that surrounds this iconic young adult series. Each episode covers 3-5 chapters worth of material, and each book has its own self-contained Season. We often cover Maggie Stiefvater’s new novels or other related works in Special Episodes. New episodes release on the first and third Thursdays of every month. Join us as we follow the adventures of four dysfunctional teenagers and their dead Welsh boyfriend!
