The Dream Thieves Review
If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?
Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.
One secret; Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.
And sometimes he's not the only one who wants those things.
Ronan is one of the raven boys-a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan's secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface-changing everything in its wake.
Of The Raven Boys, Entertainment Weekly wrote, 'Maggie Stiefvater's can't-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two.' Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure.
I extremely, extremely, enjoyed this book. I however didn't enjoy it as much as I did with the first book, The Raven Boys. This book was such a good continuation of the story and showed such character development.
Ronan went through a lot during this book. He faces his past and we find out things about him, not to mention that he dealt with a lot. He learns to control and manage it within this novel, along with deal with the family drama. Yeah, I said family. Ronan's family comes into this book, his brothers, his mother and we find out about his father. Also he was less of an asshole in this book then the last book.
Gansey and Blue really got in a better relationship in this book. They started off this book as pretty much strangers then they are more of friends, eventually they will be lovers I think. Key word, eventually.
Adam though. What the hell was wrong with him. He was really the only character that pretty much go worst to me. He took Ronan's place as the big ass in this book. At the end of it he was completely out of it. I bet he barely remembers who he even is anymore.
This was written a little while after I read the book, so there is a few things that I would have wanted to talk about but forgot.
4.5 out of 5 stars
