Synopsis

"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.

    This is probably the best book I've ever read. The story line is phenomenal in itself, but the best part about this book is simply the way the author drags you in, holds you there and never lets you go. I've never come across a writer who can describe characters through analogies like Maggie. The way she describes them makes you want to become, in some way, more like her characters. I would highly recommend this read to anyone who will listen.

    Favourite book of 2013

    When I first read this book I thought it was good at the start something you could pick up and happily read for an hour or two but by the end I was hooked! And since December I've read it another 2 times, I can't wait to read sequel-favourite book of the year.

    overall a good story! the world building and creativity was wonderful and fresh. the characters were interesting and believable for the genre. the one downer for me was how long it took for the book to really start. although, things did happen throughout the first half, the pace and my interest didn't really pick up till halfway through the book. I will read book 2, but when its a little cheaper.

    I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did. I love the characters and the complexity of the story line.
