The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Published: September 17, 2013
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.
I never expected to really enjoy this series and I was surprised I was flying through this book. Although it wasn’t as exciting as I thought The Raven Boys was, it still had plenty to keep me satisfied. Especially the back story behind my baby Ronan </3 This book focuses mostly on Ronan which I enjoyed because there’s a lot behind this quiet trouble maker.
This book also revolved a bit around Adam and Adam just decided to take my heart and shatter it into a million pieces and I adored everything in regards to Adam’s character this time around because he had more substance. And as always Blue’s family is probably my favorite bunch of people right now.
So, this book really focused in on Ronan’s ability to bring things out of his dreams and into real life. And I think the build up to everything that happens in this book is really quite a bit slow, and could have been a bit quicker. I dont want this seen as a complaint though because Maggie Stiefvater’s writing is absolutely amazing. I love it, and the way she writes is so captivating I can’t get enough! Anyway…on to the third book!
