The Raven Boys alternate cover copy
As never seen in any good fairy tale, Blue must not ever kiss her one true love. To do so would be to kill him. A non-psychic in a family of future-tellers, Blue has known this fact for as long as she can remember and has spent her life avoiding almost everyone because of it. On St. Mark’s Eve, she finds herself recording the names of the spirits her aunt sees, each of which denotes a life cut short over the course of the coming twelve months, spirits that Blue can neither see nor here bar one - a Raven boy, student of Aglionby, an exclusive private school. Later, a young man named Gansey sits in his car desperate to find proof of a myth that consumes him, yet all he discovers is the recorded voice of a girl asking his name. Linked in ways they cannot understand, Blue, Gansey and his other raven boys find themselves inextricably bound in the search for a source of great power, great promise and great danger.
