“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.

I finally finished my first book for Halloween Bingo by re-reading The Raven Boys. While it can go many places I am counting it for the Raven Square. The first time I read The Raven Boys, I listened to the audiobook, and was enchanted. This time, while my delight was somewhat lessened by already...
Once again, I don't talk about what the book is about, that's why there is a back cover and sellers give you their pitch. What I liked about this book was several of the main characters and the author's exploration of Ley Lines. I'll probably go for a another book about Blue Sargent, Gansey and Ley ...
Review to Come after I catch up from my trip.
This book is a fantasy-magic-ya delight. It's the story of Blue Sargent who lives in Henrietta, Virginia. She is the one non-psychic in a family/house full of psychics; however, she does have her own special talent. Blue is a magical amplifier. When she is around magical things/events become stro...
