This is my first book by Maggie Stiefvater (though I have a few of her other books on my kindle). I was immediately hooked by the story and the characters. There was a wonderful and consuming atmosphere about this book. I happened to listen to this book and the voice of the narrator was great for the characters. I loved all of the Raven Boys, Blue, and the psychics. It would be difficult to choose a favourite as they are all special in such different ways. I really enjoyed the mythological element and found myself googling ley lines and sleeping kings to find out more. Plan to read/listen to book two as soon as I can get my hands on it!
