This is book number 1 in the Raven Cycle series.
I reread this series all the way through every year; Maggie Stiefvater has spun a feeling that is so overwhelmingly summer, a time of fleeting teenage freedom and hazy sun. I'm a little bit in love with these characters, with Henrietta, VA, with psychics and dead kings and wishes, so I'm a whole lot in love with this book. Please, pick it up. Then come back and talk to me about it.— Katie
“Blue has grown up in a house full of women psychics who have foretold certain death for her first love. She unwillingly becomes friends with a gaggle of boys, the Raven Boys, from the very expensive private school in town. They're on the search for a mythical king who is said to grant a wish to whoever finds him. Will Blue's ability to intensify the magic around them help on their quest or put them in danger? The Raven Boys will pull you into their thrilling journey.”
