Maggie Stiefvater's books are special, not only because she is a great writer with such imaginative stories, but George and I have an equal love for her books. It all started with the Shiver trilogy, The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. After that, we just started gobbling up all of her books as fast as we could.
Maggie has a way with words that is jaw dropping...her stories are always interesting and unpredictable. She takes us on a ride that is filled with emotions. We feel what her characters go through and we want to know what happens to them. No matter the outcome...we have to know!
Violent water horses that come out of the sea...and Sean trains one every year for the Scorpio Races. Kate "Puck" is a new rider this year. Their lives will collide. "Some riders live. Others die."
Grace is rescued by one of the wolves in the pack that dragged her from a swing one winter when she was six. He has yellow eyes. At sixteen she goes into a book store and the young man behind the counter has those same yellow eyes. It makes her Shiver.
Blue has been told by her clairvoyant mother that the first boy she kisses will die. She doesn't think much of it until she meets Gansey, a student from the snooty prep school, while she's serving pizza to him and his friends, The Raven Boys. Will she get entangled in their quest? Oh boy, howdy, does she!
Deirdre and her friend James are both sixteen year old gifted musicians who are approached by faeries...and they learn faeries can be extremely dangerous. Will they Lament their decision to be involved?
Clicking on the link to each book, not only will you find info, you can get a free teaser to read!
Can't wait to see and hear Maggie tonight at the Tattered Book Store in Highlands Ranch at 7! Another perk of being retired: going to an author signing on a week night! I know...I was a teacher and always have had summers off...but it's still exciting! Especially when I think about the author signings that take place during a school year. Eeeeeep!
As always, I'm hoping this will entice you to check out her books and let me know what you think!
