|Loved my cover edition|
Full confession time, I could not get through The Scorpio Races (this link is to GS's glowing review)... I KNOW I KNOW. Consequently, I did not jump on the Steifvater bandwagon, even at the promise of a group of high school boys from a private school and magic. My bad.
Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there — known as Raven Boys — can only mean trouble. (via)
I loved this. Yesterday, with 7 minutes left of the audio book, I considered sitting in the parking garage at work to finish. Alas, deadlines called, but as soon as I was done I made a beeline for my car.
Narrator Voice: 8- It is narrated by a man and at first I was all up in arms and ready to throw in the towel, BUT he was amazing. Great voices, creepiness, and pace. Totally fit the book, as did the music at key plot points and between chapters (some of which was composed and played by Maggie herself! Impressive).
Cant wait to get my hands on book 2!
