The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater


Now that the ley lines have been woken, it feels as if Glendower is closer than ever to Gansey, Ronan, Blue and Adam. But what they don't is know is how unpredictable and broken the lines are and have been--to the point of disappearing all together--or why they are this way. All they know now is that Ronan is able to pull things from his dreams, and they aren't always nice.

Nothing is ever going to be the same for the Raven Boys now that the lines have freed. But maybe, that's just part of the plan. The plan that leads to Gansey's eventual death, possibly at the hands of Adam.


This book was about five-hundred times better than The Raven Boys, in my opinion. Not that The Raven Boys was a bad book, but it was so slow and dragged a lot. And it wasn't exciting, just interesting. On the whole, it took me over six months to read it. But The Dream Thieves is a different story. It took me two days, and I was completely mesmerized. There are a lot of slow parts, but none of them were boring; overall, it was thrilling. I was cursing at the book one moment, and gushing the next. It was a whirlwind, and I was constantly confused and enthralled.


The characters, especially Ronan and Adam, really grew in this novel, into intricate individuals. Blue will always be my favorite, probably, because she's so smart and strong and lost and completely herself. Followed closely by Gansey, who is obsessive and impressive. But Ronan really grew on me this book; he was so broken and angry and magnificent. I'm kind of dazed by how much I like him from how much I disliked him in the last book. But there's no one I hate more than Adam. I'm sorry, but I'm convinced that he's the devil, and will be the downfall of the group. Based on his background, if this were any other plot, he would probably be my favorite character. But in this series, he is so jealous and unpredictable. It's quite frightening.


If there is one thing in this series that is missing, it's a true romance. But the little romance it has, has me desperate for more. I'm swooning hardcore over Gansey and Blue. I know they will only be able to be together for short amount of time, but it will be magical. UGH! I want a kiss already!


Maggie Stiefvater's writing is almost flawless. It's powerful and wordy and smart and heartbreaking. I'm in love with her words. Truly, madly, deeply in love.

But damn this book for ending on a cliffhanger!!! Now, I have to run out and buy the next one!
