News: New series from Maggie Stiefvater! The Raven Cycle

Author Maggie Stiefvater (yes, you know her! Author of The Wolves of Mercy Falls series and The Scorpio Races) recently announced that she will be publishing another young adult novel in September! The book is titled The Raven Boys and it will be the first of four books in The Raven Cycle.

Check out the brilliant cover and synopsis below!

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.
The book will be published by Scholastic Press September 18th this year. Read all about it over at Maggie Stiefvater's blog.
