Staff Reviews

The first of a four-book series, this is a YA novel about a girl with a curse and a group of boys looking for a dead Welsh king. Where those two coincide is a glorious catastrophe of an adventure. Stiefvater’s prose is beautiful and she has a rare gift for the inexplicable yet perfectly appropriate metaphor. I love her way with words, and the story really shines in her wonderfully spiky characters fitting into each other and learning about friendship, sacrifice, and the ways magic speaks in the world. Ages 13-17.

She unwillingly becomes friends with a gaggle of boys, the Raven Boys, from the very expensive private school in town. They're on the search for a mythical king who is said to grant a wish to whoever finds him. Will Blue's ability to intensify the magic around them help on their quest or put them in danger? The Raven Boys will pull you into their thrilling journey.”
