Though she is from a family of clairvoyants, Blue Sargent's only gift seems to be that she makes other people's talents stronger, and when she meets Gansey, one of the Raven Boys from the expensive Aglionby Academy, she discovers that he has talents of his own--and that together their talents are a dangerous mix.

The Raven Boys submitted by unknown on July 30, 2013, 2:36pm Blue's family is full of psychics, her mother, aunt. Expect for her, she is a non-seer, Blue's power is to amplify energy. But when they visit the church graveyard, they have been doing this every year on St. Mark's Eve. The only thing different about this year is Blue sees someone. A boy from the local private school. All they get from him is his name, Gansey.

It took me a long time to get into the book, the beginning of the book was confusing and I kept getting distracted. But after I got into the book it was incredible!

The characters, all of them, were great, I loved Gansey, and his friends.

I'm ready for book number two!

The raven boys submitted by kzheng on June 17, 2017, 2:44pm I really enjoyed reading this series. It was fascinating to watch the characters grow as they follow their "fates" and their dreams.

Great start! submitted by steveiew on June 22, 2018, 11:27am So many questions! I'm incredibly excited to continue reading this series. I really enjoyed the first book and the questions it brought up. Blue is such an interesting character, fully a teenager yet not annoyingly so. The Raven Boys each have their own personalities, and I can't wait to learn more about each of them.

Great submitted by anacoluthon on August 18, 2018, 2:53pm A great beginning to a wonderful series. There are some great character dynamics at play here.

A quirky and creative young adult story submitted by Susan4Pax -prev. sueij- on June 21, 2019, 11:09pm 4.5/5 A quirky and creative young adult story with excellent characters and a well developed plot that was hard to guess, drew me in, and felt real (even though it is a paranormal fantasy). Stiefvater may be my favorite YA author these days, and I’ll definitely be going back to the library to get the other three books in the series.

raven boys submitted by qmomo on June 27, 2019, 9:59pm i really loved reading this young adult fantasy series. the characters are distinctive and well-drawn and the dialogue is very strong and often made me laugh. the blend of fantasy, horror, mystery, and teen friendship/romance comes together to form a memorable whole a cut above your typical supernatural romance type YA.

Inexplicable but SO GOOD submitted by Nay7 on August 15, 2020, 1:54am Makes you view nature just a little...differently
