The Raven Boys
Book #3 Read in 2013
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This is the first in a new young adult series by Stiefvater. In this book, Gansey, rich prep-school boy, is looking for a way to awaken a ley line and get a favor from a magical source. Blue is the daughter of a psychic. The two connect and begin to work together to find this magical place. Along with the two of them are friends Noah, Ronan and Adam. This search may provide them with great rewards--if they can survive the great danger.
I loved this book. The characters were great and I really cared about them. There was action, mystery and a hint of romance, along with the paranormal element. This book would appeal to both male and female readers. Stiefvater's powerful writing creates a book that just works on so many levels--character development, plot line, and a writing style that will leave readers wanting more.
