Four private school boys. One psychic’s daughter. A Welsh legend sleeping under the mountains near a sleepy Virginia town.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a spirit emerges and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. He is on a mystical quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die — a prophecy that never seemed to hold force until she met the Raven Boys. And there is so much more than love at stake.
