4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, 1 April 2013
This review is from: The Raven Boys (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I very much enjoyed this book.

It borrows very heavily from Welsh legend, not entirely sure how the welsh would find their beloved Owain Glyndwr portrayed as Arthur basically, its certainly a tale i had not heard before, i of course had heard that Arthur was lying in wait to rise again but certainly not The Welsh King. Interesting Concept, but he certainly would not be buried in the foothills of Virginia if it were true Maggie lol

Anyway Blue a young girl raised by a family of Psychics has always been told if you kiss your one true love he will die, what a thing to tell a kid !

Anyway, Blue has the ability to make everyone else's psychic ability's stronger and she meets a bunch of boys she calls "the raven boys"

Gansey, Adam, Ronan, and Noah. They all go to the local private school Aglionbury and Gansey is particular is obsessed with ley lines, and finding the sleeping welsh king. He goes to Blues house one day for a reading and asks for their help and blue becomes involved in a treasure hunt of sorts involving enchanted forests where time stands still, and trees that speak latin to you.

I found the whole thing extremely fascinating.

What i also found very interesting that there is no sex in this book whatsoever so for any parents that are worried about getting it for their kids, you needn't worry, i estimate it can be read by anyone over the age of 12, and only because there is a murder in it, but you don't read about that in the present tense.

I will happily read the 2nd one.
