The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Raven Cycle #1

Blue Sargent is going to kill her true love. At least that's what everyone keeps telling her. Living in a family of psychics isn't easy. Despite the numerous repetitive warnings and her own views about the boys who attend the local private school, Blue finds herself drawn into a group of Raven Boys--Gansey, Adam, Ronan, and Noah.

What I thought: The Raven Boys is definitely like nothing Maggie's ever written least I think so and I've read everything. I find myself missing the multiple points-of-view she used with her other books. There wasn't as much action as I would expect in a first book. It also didn't have the ending I expected, but that's the author's prerogative. Blue and Gansey's relationship is still young. I don't think they've even hit romance yet. I'll definitely be reading the next book. I expect big things to happen. Hand this to fans of Maggie as well as paranormal fiction readers who are looking for something different.
