The Raven Boys - Book Briefing


The Raven Boys - Book Briefing

“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.

I started reading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater last night and I'm super excited to get into this series. The whole premise seems really interesting to me and the ratings are pretty high which must mean that it has to be good, if not great. I'm not much for the paranormal genre but after reading this synopsis, I've decided to widen my horizons. I've also wanted to read this for a while due to the hype and a few years ago, I decided to pick up Maggie's other trilogy, The Wolves of Mercy Falls, (When I had an obsession with books about hunky werewolves) but I decided not to read it due to a couple of poor reviews. Hopefully, The Raven Boys will live up to my high expectations and if I enjoy this I will most likely read Maggie's other series too.

I'll update you when I finish this and include a brief review too. Comment if you've read this or want to.
