The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

dreamNow that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same.

Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life.

Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after…

Story Breakdown:

The ley lines have been woken and the Raven Boys (and Blue of course) are racing towards finding answers to everything that has been happening. Focusing mainly on Ronan, we delve into his abilities and deeply hidden secrets.

Character Highlights:

Ronan – Based strictly on book one I was NOT a fan.  But now?  After seeing what he is capable of and what he does for others with his tough guy exterior?  SOLD.  Though I do have several questions about him that I will need to discuss with others ASAP.

Gansey – Still my favorite!  I really love the off the wall friendship/will it be more relationship with Blue.  Also, I love him calling her Jane and I cannot explain why.

Blue – We get to spend a bit more time with her family (or at least it felt that way to me) and I loved them even more than in RB.  I love the matter of fact way they talk to each other and though Blue is the child she isn’t “damaged” by the lack of traditional parenting.  I love Blue and hope if I ever have a daughter she’s as cool as her.

Overall Thoughts: WOW.  Again, Ms Stiefvater surprises me.  I LOVED this book and was 1000% percent committed from the prologue.  In fact, just reading the prologue I felt a physical connection to the story and needed a break to digest what I had just read.  These books aren’t just books but complete experiences.  There is no skimming, no reading ahead, just soaking up the words and feels.  There isn’t anything I can say that would do justice to the anticipation I have for the next installment.

5/5
