Brief Description

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

    I loved this book. It’s very character driven and has a good plot. The characters are all flawed and feel real. I would definitely recommend.

    I've been disgruntled with YA literature for a long time now, especially for the last couple of years, but this series captivated me. Before I go any further, I will say that this is a character driven story, not a plot driven story, so it will come across as being slow. But the focus isn't the plot; it's the setting, the atmosphere, and the humanity of the people into whose lives we are getting a glimpse. And in each of those arenas, this book knocks the ball out of the park. Having already read the other three books in this series, I can say that I have not been disappointed, but I still consider this one my favorite of the four. I have read nothing like it before, and I will probably never read anything like it ever again. Bravo.

    This book made me more of a dreamer. It made me explore the world around me more and ask odd questions. A book about adventure, love, magic, and secrets seems like the ultimate teen book in my opinion. I finished this, almost 1,000 pages, in around 2-3 days simply because I could not put it down. It's got a lot of depth to each character and to the plot. You don't just follow a story line, you follow the lives of Gansey, Ronan, Adam, and Blue. If you want a book where you're simply following one simple plot, this isn't for you. Maggie captured the big picture but didn't forget even the smallest details. I am now enveloped into the world of Henrietta, Virginia and the characters in it.
  • Wonderful book

    little skeptical in the beginning, but came to love this book and can honestly say this series is one of my favorites

    This book was extremely well-written. The way the words flowed together to paint beautiful, breathtaking visual images made me forget I was even reading a book. I found myself sucked into their reality, right alongside the people in this book. The characters in this book are so well-thought up as well. Everyone has a distinct, different personality, and somehow they all work together in sometimes strange ways. I would recommend this book to anyone out there, although, be warned: you will not be able to put it down
  • Fantastic!

    Read this book on a recommendation, and I am honestly impressed. From the get-go I felt a connection to all of these characters and their quest. Normally it will take me ages to finish a book despite how interested I am- with this one, however, I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to get the next one!
  • Sorry to be harsh:(, but it's accurate

    I tried so hard to get into it but I just couldn't because it didn't read well, there were parts (most of the story) where I just didn't care, and it emphasized and elongated the stuff that should be short and sweet- the things that get boring fast. I thought it would be really cool but the way it was executed was disappointing. This is coming from someone that has read and loved the mortal instruments, vampire academy, Mara dyer, mind jacker, the fifth wave, maze runner, divergent... If you love any of those books like I do, then I am telling you you won't like this.

    So I chose to read this book as a writing project, and it definitely seemed interesting! But then you get into the actual story, and there is no plot structure. It took over 150 pages of the 400 for the characters to meet. As a student, I need a story that is exciting, immersing, and straight to the point. This story was the exact opposite. The structure of the story was all over the place. Maggie tried to thread in extra plots, but it made the story a bust. In the end? I was confused on what Stiefvater was really trying to capture. The summary stated it was true love, the entrance stated adventure, the bulk of the middle indicated fixing family issues and the end said revenge. The book hurt me to read. There was so much filler, only 20% of the story was actually interesting. And I tried so hard to comprehend, to enjoy it. But the more I read, the less I cared. Now, turning in this project, I have a presentation on the importance of a plot structure, and how any good novel needs a balanced one to be successful. So, to those of you who are at an age of fourteen and up, this story is not for you. And any of those at an age of ten or younger cannot read this period. So those of you in the middle? Go ahead. Tell them all what you think of it. Because looking at it from the perspective of a student, this book is an unbalanced wreck.

    I absolutely loved Scorpio Races. Shiver was ok though I didn't finish the series. Too much romance. When I began the Raven Boys, I was once again impressed with Maggie's writing, characterization, and overall voice. But as the series progressed, the books end up using more and MORE language which for me was really hard to stomach. Also the magical bits weren't thought out as well as I'd hoped they would be and were kinda off-kilter and wacky sometimes. This is an impressive series and quite beautiful, but honestly there is so much language in the 2nd and 3rd book I wanted to puke. It just got repetitive and annoying and of course it still stays gross. Ech. But if you don't mind a more colorful series then this would be a good one to choose. The third book is kind of weird.
