Blue has spent the majority of her sixteen years being told that if she kisses her true love, he will die. When Blue meets Gansey's spirit on the corpse road she knows there is only one reason why - either he is her true love or she has killed him. Determined to find out the truth, Blue becomes involved with the Raven Boys, four boys from the local private school who are on a quest to discover Glendower - a lost ancient Welsh King who is buried somewhere along the Virginia ley line. Whoever finds him will be granted a supernatural favour. Never before has Blue felt such magic around her. But is Gansey her true love? She can't imagine a time she would feel like that, and she is adamant not to be the reason for his death. Where will fate lead them?

e Stiefvater's novel, inspired by Manx, Irish, and Scottish legends of beautiful but deadly fairy horses that emerge from the sea each autumn, begins rivetingly and gets better and better . . . all the way, in fact, to best. -Horn Book Review, Starred Review e nothing else out there now. -Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review e A study of courage and loyalty tested...utterly compelling. -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review e A book with cross-appeal to lovers of fantasy, horse stories, romance, and action-adventure, this seems to have a shot at being a YA blockbuster. -Booklist, Starred Review e Up-On the sea-battered and wind-swept isle of Thisby, fall brings the famed and feared capaill uisce, or water horses, and with them, death . . . The author takes great liberties with the Celtic myth, but the result is marvelous. -School Library Journal, Starred Review Stiefvater not only steps out of the young adult fantasy box with The Scorpio Races but crushes it with pounding hooves.... If The Scorpio Races sounds like nothing you've ever read, that's because it is. -The New York Times Book Review Tactile world-building, an island full of compelling characters, and the budding romance between Sean and Puck all make for an unforgettable book that's quite unlike anything else out there. -NPR Books With this beautifully executed drama, Stiefvater has established herself as one of the finest YA novelists writing today. -Entertainment Weekly Tense, atmospheric, and utterly original. -People Magazine
