Dying to Devour: The Raven Boys
Going through the books on my bookshelf, in search of a book for my teen to read for ARP. Just saying that makes me want to rant and rave about how absolutely ridiculous it is to make middle school kids read books and take tests on them. Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of.
Okay, I’m going to take a deep breath and step off my soapbox now.
Anyway, as I was looking through my books I found an ARC (advance reading copy) of Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys. With the release of Blue Lily, Lily Blue, I feel like I’ve been missing out on something wonderful. I have decided that I’ll be reading The Raven Boys next. No matter what, I’m getting to this series.
Come. Here. My. Pretty.
Blue has spent the majority of her sixteen years being told that if she kisses her true love, he will die. When Blue meets Gansey’s spirit on the corpse road she knows there is only one reason why – either he is her true love or she has killed him.
Determined to find out the truth, Blue becomes involved with the Raven Boys, four boys from the local private school (lead by Gansey) who are on a quest to discover Glendower – a lost ancient Welsh King who is buried somewhere along the Virginia ley line. Whoever finds him will be granted a supernatural favour.
Never before has Blue felt such magic around her. But is Gansey her true love? She can’t imagine a time she would feel like that, and she is adamant not to be the reason for his death. Where will fate lead them?
