A pleasant surprise. All the synopses for this book are very vague and so going into it I didn't know what to expect. I liked it. Eerie and a bit scary but in a good way. Maggie Stiefvater has a way of writing characters that you can't help but empathize with. On to the next one! ( )

I listened the audiobook for this. I don't think that this was a good book for me to try to listen to. When I listen to an audiobook, I am usually doing other things at the same time. I think that this book requires your full attention. Because I would be doing other things at the same time, I felt as if I were missing parts every once in a while and felt like I was trying to put the pieces together to understand what was going on. I did however like the story. I plan on physically reading this and the rest of the series at a later time. ( )

Blue has forever been told that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. She doesn't doubt this for a minute. So without knowing who her potential true love may be Blue decided long ago that it would be much easier to just not kiss anybody, a much easier task at six then it was turning out to be at sixteen. But Blue was determined not to fall in love. Then on St Mark's Eve at the spirit watch Blue sees her first ever spirit. In the next twelve months the boy that spirit belongs to is going to die and Blue, having been able to see him, is either his true love, the person who kills him or both.

Gansey may seem the typical spoilt, rich kid with his expensive car, fine clothes and ability to solve most any problem by throwing money at it, but not everything in life can be solved with money. Surrounding himself with an eclectic group of friends, Gansey and his fellow Raven Boys have spent the last several years searching for the impossible. An ancient Welsh King lying in rest, sleeping for hundreds of years, hidden along the paths of time who will grand a wish to the one who awakens him. While each has their own reasons for joining in the search, for one it will lead to their death.

Raven Boys draws together a cast of psychics, students, explorers, friends and hidden enemies. An exciting tale of friendships, loyalties, predictions and murder. Where four Raven boys and one Blue girl are discovering that together they can find magic and mystery in the world. A world where the threat of a kiss is as heart stopping as the promise of death, where damning prophecies lead to true love and the search for an ancient king sleeping will lead to another world. This is a story where magical realism seamlessly mingles with ancient myths resulting in an engaging and complex beginning to an alluring and brilliant new series. ( )

I read this book on a recommendation from my sis-in-law. She, and a coworker, told me the book was "subtle". I didn't quite understand what they meant until after I read it (and they explained it a second time). During the read, I kept waiting for the "real action" to begin. When the book ended, I looked back and could see the ups and downs much easier. In this way, it was subtle. The book is meant to be read as a series, I think. I haven't finished the series, so I cannot be sure that the plot point I'm waiting for happens near the very end of it. However, THIS book definitely reads like "part one".

At the moment, I feel committed to following the story to its natural conclusion. I do NOT yet feel enamored with any of the characters. There are parts of the story I truly enjoy, but I am not in love with the world just yet. Perhaps this is part of the "subtlety" that is Stiefvater's writing style. I hope that, at least by the end of it, I have found a quiet love with some part of the story.

I will update the state of my enamor-ment as I review books to come. ( )

Local town girl gets entangled with boys from the local prep school. Throw in some occult: her mother and aunts can foretell the future. The preppies all have issues, but their leader Gansey seeks the final resting place of a long dead European king, whom he believes is buried in the Virginian hills, having travelled on a ley line. Too long and wandering, and Blue's interest in more than one boy is disturbing. I liked what Stiefvater did with Noah -- highlight of the book for me. ( )

Deep into that darkness, long I stood

there, wondering, fearing,

Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever

dared to dream before...

~Edgar Allan Poe
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

~Oscar Wilde
