The Raven Boys Sneak Peek

I was excited when I found out Maggie Steifvater has a new series coming out soon in September - The Raven Boys. It sounds intriguing and gothic, and it seems to be just that.

Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III has family money, good looks, and tons of friends, but something’s missing from his life: He won’t stop searching for Glendower, a vanished Welsh king, who — legend has it — will grant one wish to the one who finds him. 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 fellow Raven Boys come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But now she’s not so sure.
Check out a sneak peek below, the first two chapters.

I have hopes for this book. I still haven't read SHIVER or THE SCORPIO RACES (both of which I OWN!!!) but I've read snippets from both and it's clear how much of an intellectual Stiefvater is. Her complex thought patterns bleed through the pages, and I know it may be a bit premature since I haven't read one of her books to completion just yet, but heck, I have a good feeling!

Thanks for featuring the preview. I'll be reading it tomorrow morning. ;)

I have read Lament and really liked it, and started to read Shiver - I love the design of the book, with everything in blue.
I have started to read the extract and am really excited about it, so I hope to finish it soon!
