Raven Cycle 1. The Raven Boys

If you kiss your true love, he will die

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them - not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He has it all - family money, good looks, devoted friends - but he's looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.
From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the "Shiver trilogy" and "The Scorpio Races", comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we've never been before.
Portrait
Maggie Stiefvater, geb. im November 1981 in Virginia, verlebte eine nach eigenen Worten sehr chaotische aber sehr kreative und musisch geprägte Kindheit und Jugend. Nach dem College versuchte sie u.a. als Kellnerin, Zeichenlehrerin beruflich Fuß zu fassen. Doch sehr bald schon meldeten sich ihre kreativen Talente und verlangten, ausgelebt zu werden zunächst als Musikerin und Songwriterin, dann zunehmend als bildende Künstlerin. Für ihre künstlerischen Arbeiten wurde sie inzwischen mit einigen wichtigen Preisen ausgezeichnet. Seit 2007 hat sich Stiefvater aufs Schreiben konzentriert und zählt inzwischen zu den erfolgreichsten Autorinnen der Romantasy.

Mystisch! Auf den ersten Blick kein Buch mit viel Fantasy, doch im Laufe der Geschichte kommt immer mehr dazu. Spannend, tolle Charaktere, macht Lust auf mehr. Mystisch!

I always hear people rave about Stiefvater's writing and while it is quite good, I personally have some issues with it. Her writing isn't very straightforward and she likes to keep you hanging in the middle of unresolved scenes and start a new chapter. Aside from that I enjoyed The Raven Boys a lot, thanks to the wonderful characters who feel magical but also like they could maybe exist, but only in a town like Henrietta. The plot is interesting though not very fast paced. This is a four book series, so if you want a fast paced story I suggest you go look at some of the Duologies that have become popular in the last few years. The whole series is mostly character driven which I love. I don't care about a plot if I don't care about the characters. I'm sure most people know this by now but there are instances of child abuse throughout the series (though nothing very graphic), underage alcohol abuse (once again not very graphic) and a suicide attempt in the past that is not discussed in further detail but mentioned. I have to say that I don't like this edition very much. It feels weirdly hard for a softcover, you have to open it quite a lot because the whole page is printed and the cover makes a noise whenever you move it. The other scholastic softcover editions (which are "Scholastics Ltd." on here whereas the one I own is only by "Scholastics") are a lot smoother. The drawing of the boys is only not my kind of art either.

Langweilig..

Ich finde die Bücher von Maggie Stiefvater so unglaublich langweilig! Verstehe den Hype echt nicht. Ich dachte nach dem Ersten würde es besser werden, aber The Dream Thieves war noch schlimmer. Kann es echt keinem empfehlen :(
