Today Maggie posted not only the title of her next project (previously known as “MagicalNovel”) but also the cover and the blurb:
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.
Sounds cool, right? Add that to my love for all of Stiefvater’s novels and this is in my cart faster than you can you say preorder. I think I may have to go the signed/doodled route this time and preorder through Fountain Bookstore. The Raven Boys is the first book in a four-book series and releases on September 18. Cannot wait!
