The Raven Boys


I'm back, form the blogging wilderness, to go completely crazy over Maggie Stiefvater's announcement of her new novel The Raven Boys. The first in the four part Raven Cycle.







The Cover!

The Title!

The Concept!

Then I read this quote on GalleyCat

“I grew up on a diet of exceptional fantasy series for children— The Dark Is Rising, The Black Cauldron, A Wrinkle in Time, The Chronicles of Narnia — and I’ve always wanted to write one of those sprawling epic sagas built from intimate moments."

And I was completely sold. I Can. Not. Wait.

Roll on September!

  6. Oh wow this book sounds so good! I cant wait to read it. I love all of Maggie's books. My favourite series would have to be The shiver series which is very mainstream of me.
