This paper discusses the terms of narration and narrative, i.e. a story, a spoken or written account of events along with the narrative criteria including the existence of a human narrator, the existence of a sequence of events, and the temporal setting of a story. The paper further asserts the difference between the point of view, which is defined as who tells a story, and perspective, which shows how a character with a point of view perceives the story. These principles are analysed in The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. The five main characters Blue Sargent, Richard Gansey, Adam Parrish, Ronan Lynch, and Noah Czerny have been given unique perspectives and they are unveiled through their separate character arcs. Blues perspective is clad with assumptions; Ganseys is a clash between the perceived and perceiving; Adams comes to light only when compared to others; Ronans is postponed and contrary to expectations; Noahs is absent until the very end of the series.
