The Raven Cycle: The Raven Boys (Book 1)

by Maggie Stiefvater Year Published: September 18, 2012 YA Fantasy

I just started listening to this book and I am only on chapter 3.  I'm hooked!  I listen to it only when I workout or do housework.  And, man, am I excited to do either of those again just to keep listening to the book.  

This one is more of a YA fantasy fiction in which the main character (really not sure who the main character is yet.  It seems to alternate between two characters. Regardless.) Blue learns early in life from her clairvoyant family that she will kill her true love with her kiss.  Although she is not clairvoyant herself, she adds to the power of her family.  On St. Mark's day she and her aunt go to the churchyard to gather the names of those who will die in the next year.  Blue can't see them, except for one boy.  She can see this boy because he is either her true love or she will kill him.  Dun, dun, dun!  But he is in the churchyard that night as well looking for those who can see the dead.  So clearly he has a belief in this as well.  

Fabulous!
