Summery: “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: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.
My Review: I am a huge fan of Maggie’s books, I love The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series, So when i found out she wrote another book series, i freaked out. So i finally bought the Raven Boys, About time right? The Raven Boys is a complate different story compared The Wolves of Mercy Falls.
There is a lot of mythology in this book, and awesome Paranormal Twist. We read about The Raven Boys from the all boy school and Blue who lives in house full of psychics, but she doesn’t have there powers, until one night her and her Aunt Neeve go visit the soon-to-be-dead spirits. Blue see a boy name Gansey, A raven boy at a Rich Snobby all boy school. She Discovers that Gansey and the raven boys are on a quest to find someone.
The Raven Boys is more complex story compared to other Maggie’s book, More detailed. In the Beginning the story is a little boring but once you keep reading it get better. The book isn’t in a one person point of view which i enjoy most.
I wouldn’t really say the book has a Love Triangle but kinda does, The raven boys has little romance and more of Adventure then anything. I liked how the story didn’t really focus on the romance like most YA books.
The ending will drive you crazy for more, i wouldn’t really say it was a cliff hanger but there is a lot of unanswered questions i had, that i hope get explained more in the 2nd book.
I really enjoyed the Raven Boys, Maggie was proven again that she is awesome. Can’t wait to read the second book in the Raven Cycle series. also really love the art on the cover it’s really awesome.
