Book News: Maggie Stiefvater announces The Raven Cycle.

Launching with The Raven Boys in September 2012, The Raven Cycle is a new four book series from the uber-talented Maggie Stiefvater.  One of my very first blog posts was about Maggie and her at-that-time new book deal.  Back then I was new to YA and Maggie's book Shiver was one of the very few YA books I had read, along with some Stephenie Meyer, Alyson Noel and Becca Fitzpatrick - that was it. How times have changed!

I'm excited for this one - it sounds pretty great, and a little different too.  And check out the great cover.  Do you love it?


The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Release date: September 2012.

Filled with mystery, romance, and the supernatural, The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart.

Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there—known as Raven Boys—can only mean trouble. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But she was wrong.

  6. I love the image of the crow--I'm not sure how I feel about that white background, though! But I guess it doesn't matter...I will be reading it anyway. :D

  7. It does sound neat...Stiefvater is an auto-read for me, no matter how the summary reads. (and this one does definitely sound 'different').

  8. I thought the cover was freaking awesome. I'm secretly kind of hoping for some Edgar Allan Poe allusions or creepiness because he's kind of the king of Ravens. But it doesn't sound like there will be.

    And the names of her characters... are... interesting?

    I've read all of Maggie's other books, wo I'm sure I'll enjoy this one too!
