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.

Summery: The first book in Alyson Noël’s extraordinary new Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world, where true love never dies…
After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head – wielding a magic so intense, it’s as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is – or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she’s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

My Review: I Don’t know what is about Alyson Noels book that i just can’t get myself to enjoy her series.  I wasn’t really a fan of her Soul Seekers series, but I enjoy the soul seekers more then i did Evermore. you can tell this was her first series, it shows a lot. The writing was really hard to read, not that is was bad but it was just really boring. The book just feels like a big jumble of a mess. I couldn’t connect myself to this book at all. There was a few times where i kept catching myself skipping parts in the book cause it was just getting boring. and i notice that the book jumped to one thing to the next and i hate when Authors do that. I just didn’t enjoy this book at all, and i really tried to like it, i mean i REALLY tried my damn hardest to enjoy this book, but it just didn’t happen.

I felt a little confused at some parts in the book a lot of it just didn’t make any since at all. I was Worried that never was just gonna be like the Soul Seekers and i was gonna hate it, but after finishing the book i realized the Soul seekers is an improvement, Evermore sucks compared to The Soul Seekers.

And i hated the romance in this book, i can’t stand the love interest in this like if i was ever i would been like hell no with this guy, he annoys me and i can’t stand him. Tho my favorite character is the whole damn book was Miles, i did enjoy him, it seem like he was the only that had his head straight( and the fact he reminds me of a friend i once knew ).

Evermore kinda reminds me of The Fallen series without the angel part, both book kinda have the same concept of repeating lives kinda thing, but the fallen series is a 100x better then evermore.

I get what Alyson was trying to write, it just didn’t come out that way. I understand first books can be the hardest.
