An all-new series from the masterful, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

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. He has it all - family money, good looks, devoted friends - but he''s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, 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 never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she''s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we''ve never been before.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Raven Boys

"Stiefvater is a master storyteller." -USA Today

*"It''s a tour de force of characterization, and while there is no lack of event or mystery, it is the way Stiefvater''s people live in the reader''s imagination that makes this such a memorable read." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"[A] story very few writers could dream up and only Stiefvater could make so palpably real. Simultaneously complex and simple, compulsively readable, marvelously wrought." -Kirkus, starred review

*"The book is marvelous, for not only is it filled with marvels, it is also a marvel of imagination . . . this fantasy/mystery rises to the level of serious literature, leaving readers hungering for more." -Booklist, starred review

*"An incredibly rich and unique tale, a supernatural thriller of a different flavor." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Stiefvater''s can''t-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book 2." -Entertainment Weekly

"In a young-adult market crowded with copycats, it''s refreshing to find a book that blazes a path as unique as Maggie Stiefvater''s The Raven Boys." -Los Angeles Times
