The Raven Boys is a supernatural, teen fiction novel by Maggie Stiefvater. She is the author of the Shiver-Linger-Forever-Sinner series that I absolutely raved about and therefore I was quite excited to start this series. And, as expected, Maggie did NOT disappoint! This book, the first of a new trilogy, was absolutely magnificent! The story follows the life of Blue, the daughter to a family of psychics, who doesn't have the ability to see like her family does; instead, she makes the "sight" stronger for those around her. In addition, the story follows a group of school boys who attend the pretentious school of Aglionby Academy; these boys have taken it upon themselves to solve the ancient task of waking a ley line. The two become entwined in the task when Blue experiences something new; something that only happens when those without "sight" are somehow directly tied to that individual.

I'm now currently reading the second novel in the series - The Dream Thieves - and am looking forward for the third and final novel - Blue Lily, Lily Blue - to be delivered to my library (it's on order currently).
Overall, I would rate The Raven Boys 5/5 because it was perfect! And I am definitely already feeling the same about the second novel so far!
Until next time,
Happy Reading Fellow Bookworms :)
