Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.
His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
This book took me some time to get into and I wasn’t sure what to make of it as first, but I ended up Loving the Characters so much. The writing is what drew me in and made me fall in love with the characters. Noah is probably my favourite character. Even if we don’t know much about him. He’s probably the biggest shock of all in the story, I think he’s the most interesting character in the story. I really Enjoyed this book. I can definitely say that The Raven Cycle series has the potential of becoming a new favourite of mine.
