    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.

    C. ALLINGER says: "Stiefvater does it again!"
    "Very intriguing story!"

    If you could sum up The Raven Boys in three words, what would they be?

    The three words I would use to sum up The Raven Boys would be mysterious, intriguing, and wonderful!


    What other book might you compare The Raven Boys to and why?

    One of my favorite novels is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I loved the complex storyline and well-developed characters in The Historian. Similarly, The Raven Boys storyline gives me so much to think about. I also feel like I know the characters really well, yet I know there is so much more to learn about them! I'm so thankful I will have that opportunity in the books that follow in this series!


    Which character – as performed by Will Patton – was your favorite?

    Will Patton does an awesome job narrating this story! It is almost impossible to name a favorite character narration. I cannot! I love them all!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story made me smile and laugh quite a bit. I also wiped tears away. It made me gasp as well. I am looking forward to the revelations in the next books in this series! I've added this title to my list of favorite reads.


    Any additional comments?

    Maggie Stiefvater has a gift with turning a phrase. Remembering these phrases gave me so much joy days later when my memory was triggered. Thank you Maggie! It was hard to put this book down and move on to my next book! In fact, I read it and listened to it a couple of times and made delightful discoveries each time! :)
