Maggie Stiefvater med ny serie

Maggie Stiefvater, forfatteren bak the Wolves of Mercy Falls - trilogien og boken The Scorpio Races, og hennes forlag har akkurat annonsert at hun snart er klar med en splitter ny serie for ungdom.

The Raven Cycle skal bli en serie på fire bøker, og første bok, The Raven Boys, utgit 18. september i år. Stiefvater har selv kalt bøkene for "magiske", her er det overnaturlige elementer, mysterier og kjærlighet. Forlaget beskriver den første boken i serien slik:

The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart. 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. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But now she’s not so sure. 

 -Dette prosjektet føles som noe helt annet enn det jeg har arbeidet med tidligere, skriver Stiefvater i et innlegg på sin blogg.
