*BeeAfraid: In Blue Lily, Lily Blue, the gang goes in an very dark, very deep cave. The atmosphere is clostrophobic and anxiety inducing enough, but Gansey, who is deathly allergic to bees (he even died as a child because of hornet stungs and suffers PTSD after his death), hears and feels hornets way too close to him for comfort.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her [[{{Seers}} clairvoyant]] mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark 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. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Gansey is different. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more. He is on a 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 told by her psychic family that she will kill her true love. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caueght up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

** The real BilingualBonus is that ''he sucks''. Stiefvater has mentioned that only two characters in the series actually speak good Latin. [[spoiler:Turns out that the bad Latin is actually [[Foreshadowing a way to tell who and what has been dreamed up by Ronan, and thus speaks it as badly as he does]].]]
