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 sounds 60-something, and this is a book about teenagers, and he has that kind of smoky, gravely voice that I suppose would work good with, IDK, campfire stories but isn't quite up to snuff for...
3,75 stars I had a hard time getting into the story, initially. I didn't fully relate to any of the characters, and I felt like (at least the first half of) the book lacked the required tension to keep me invested. The last couple of fifths in the book were better in this regard, and I ended up fini...
Well, finally.This book was really good and I'm kind of glad I'm just getting around to reading this series because I won't have to agonize for the next release. Yay for that.Initially, I was inclined to give the book five stars. Its has characters I'm falling in love with, a good plot, enough myste...
I finally decided to read this book since I’ve been seeing a lot about this series on Tumblr and it bothered me that I haven’t started this. So yeah, because of pressure I guess. To be honest, after reading this book I felt almost nothing? I don’t really know how I feel about this. For sure Stiefvat...
