Praise for The Raven Cycle

New York Times Bestseller
USA Today Bestseller

 “Stiefvater is a master storyteller.”
USA Today, The Raven Boys

 “A flirtier kind of horror-fantasy, aimed at teens clutching tattered Twilight and Sandman paperbacks....Stiefvater’s quirky prose has ample nerdy pleasures.”
TIME Magazine, The Raven Boys

“Stiefvater’s can’t-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book 2.”
Entertainment Weekly, The Raven Boys

“[A] well-paced neo-Gothic thriller about a teenage fivesome’s search for the supernatural . . .and themselves”
— New York Times Book Review, The Raven Boys

 “In a young-adult market crowded with copycats, it's refreshing to find a book that blazes a path as unique as Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys...a dizzying paranormal romance tinged with murder and Welsh mythology that brings a family of oddball psychics into contact with the rarefied world of teen blue bloods.”
Los Angeles Times, The Raven Boys

“Equal parts thriller and mystery, with a measured dash of romance sprinkled on top... Maggie has woven such a unique, intriguing narrative that I struggled for comparisons..”
— MTV.com, The Raven Boys

“Stiefvater’s second in her Raven Cycle is as gorgeous and amazing as the first…you’ll savor every line.”
RT Book Reviews, “Top Pick” review, The Dream Thieves

“Stiefvater is writing the kind of books here that incorporate some familiar elements, but which makes them so appealingly odd, they feel like nothing else in the YA field at the moment.”
Locus Magazine, The Dream Thieves

star “One unexpected and wonderful surprise after another…a marvel of imagination.”
Booklist, starred review of The Raven Boys

star “[A] tour de force of characterization, and while there is no lack of event or mystery, it is the way Stiefvater’s people live in the reader’s imagination that makes this such a memorable read.”
— Publishers Weekly, starred review of The Raven Boys

star “Richly written and filled with figurative language…this story of secrets and dreams, of brothers and of all-too-real magic is an absolute marvel of imagination and an irresistible invitation to wonder.”
Booklist, starred review of The Dream Thieves

star “The pace is electric, the prose marvelously sure-footed and strong, but it’s the complicated characters—particularly Ronan, violent, drunk, tender and tough—that meld magic and reality into an engrossing, believable whole.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review of The Dream Thieves

star “Throughout, the prose is crisp and dazzling and the dialogue positively crackles.”
School Library Journal, starred review of Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Praise for Shiver

New York Times BestsellerA Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2009

“Stiefvater skillfully increases the tension throughout; her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

 “Readers will easily identify with the strong, dynamic characters. The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that it seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money.”
School Library Journal, starred review

“After devouring dozens of fast-paced, very plot-centric books, you sometimes need to settle down and sink in to something slower and more contemplative. You need to be reminded that sometimes words can reach into your chest and wrench your heart.”
MTVNews.com

Praise for Linger

#1 New York Times Bestseller

USA Today Bestseller

“This sequel’s poetic prose skillfully captures the four teens’ longings for love, forgetting, remembering, righting wrongs and life itself. The riveting ending will leave readers panting for the next sequel.” 
— Kirkus Reviews

“This riveting narrative, impossible to put down, is not only an excellent addition to the current fangs and fur craze but is also a beautifully written romance that, along with Shiver, will have teens clamoring for the third and final entry.” 
— Voice of Youth Advocates

Praise for Forever

USA Today Bestseller

New York Times Bestseller

“[A]n intelligent paranormal romance that surreptitiously folds in serious adolescent issues, including teens' relationships with their parents, suicidal ideation, morphing bodies and young love.” 
— The Los Angeles Times

“Now, finally, things come to an epic, romantic, and action-packed close in Forever.” 
— Ellegirl.com

“[F]illed with suspense, sorrow, and just enough romance…”
Seventeen.com

“ Stiefvater’s emotional prose is rich without being melodramatic, and she clearly shares her fans’ love of these characters.”
— Booklist

“Stiefvater, most recognized for her Shiver werewolf romances, not only steps out of the young adult fantasy box with The Scorpio Races but crushes it with pounding hooves….If The Scorpio Races sounds like nothing you’ve ever read, that’s because it is.…Stiefvater has successfully plumbed lesser-known myths and written a complex literary thriller that pumps new blood into a genre suffering from post-Twilight burnout.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Tense, atmospheric, and utterly original.”
People Magazine

“[I]mpossibly thrilling…With this beautifully executed drama, Stiefvater has established herself as one of the finest YA novelists writing today.”
Entertainment Weekly

Booklist, starred review

star “[A] taut, chilling, romantic adventure…. Masterful. Like nothing else out there now.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

star “While there is plenty of action, conflict, excitement, and a heart-stopping climax, it is the slowly developing relationship between Kate and Sean that makes the book remarkable.”
School Library Journal, starred review

star “ Stiefvater sets not one foot wrong as she takes readers on an intoxicating ride of their own.”
The Horn Book, starred review

“In her most addictive story yet, Stiefvater revives the strong, silent type in sexy, brooding monster tamer Sean Kendrick. ...Stiefvater is a master of magical realism, and her prose leaves the reader cold, damp and anxious as November closes in on the isolated island setting.”
