Praise
"Stiefvater's can't-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book 2."
"Simultaneously complex and simple, compulsively readable, marvelously wrought...The magic is entirely pragmatic; the impossible, extraordinarily true." starred review)
"THE RAVEN BOYS is an incredibly rich and unique tale, a supernatural thriller of a different flavor. The cinematic feel paces the novel well, and the many pieces of the story unfold with grace. The complicated relationships between the Raven boys and Blue are not of the standard main character/love interest variety and makes the curious plot all the more enthralling."
"Stiefvater, who has an assured and entertaining way with language, doesn't talk down to her readers, and she ably blends the mystical and the earthly, the primitive and the contemporary in a way that brings to mind the work of John Bellairs, J. K. Rowling, Lois Duncan and Stephenie Meyer."
"It's a tour de force of characterization, and while there is no lack of event or mystery, it is the way Stiefvater's people live in the reader's imagination that makes this such a memorable read."
From the Publisher
Annotation Rituals, legends, clairvoyance, and notions of first love are seamlessly threaded through this compelling young adult fantasy. The only slightly ordinary girl in a house full of psychics, Blue Sargent is nevertheless part of the world of magic, ghosts, and prophecies that surround her family. In fact, she's been cautioned that she'll be the death of her true love. On St. Mark's Eve, Blue sees the soul of a boy named Gansey who is fated to die soon, which has never happened before. Gansey, Adam, Ronan, and Noah are a group of boys from Aglionby, an elite private school known for its raven logo. Despite her intention to avoid the Raven Boys at all costs, Blue becomes enmeshed in an impossible quest. This is the first book in the Raven Cycle by the same author as the bestselling Shiver trilogy and THE SCORPIO RACES.
Editors Note An all-new series from the masterful, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!"There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark's Eve," Neeve said. "Either you're his true love . . . or you killed him." It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive. Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them-not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He has it all-family money, good looks, devoted friends-but he's looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys:
