Book Review: The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)
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, Enterntainment 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.

3/5 stars (liked it)
This story picks up right where The Raven Boys left off.  Even though this book is full of many characters I felt like I got to know them all.  From all the boys from Aglionby Academy, a new mysterious man Mr. Gray, the women at 300 Fox Way and of course Blue, I really felt like I got to know them and they were all interesting.  We learn more about Ronan, his brothers and his family and why his father was killed.  We also learn more about Adam and what exactly happened to him in the last book.  And of course Blue, who is afraid to kiss any boy for fear she will kill him.  There’s also Noah, who is very mysterious but very likeable.  I can’t wait to see where the next book will go.
