Now 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… -Summary from Goodreads.

Okay, so this book took much longer to finish than I expected it to. Due in part to the fact that my overall mood this weekend was MEH {insert the song “Violin” by Amos Lee on repeat and that constant “something’s missing” ache and you’ve pretty much nailed it} and also because this book was much more complicated {IMO} than the first, thus making it harder to read.

In The Dream Thieves, we are introduced to a few new players in this game of Glendower hide and seek. For the most part, it all works well. It’s essential to the story for these new characters to interact the way they do but it does add one too many stokes to an already crowded fire. Crowdedness aside, I loved this story mucho much. It’s still that thrilling adventure in the hunt for Glendower’s whereabouts…with an added twist of dream thieves. I mean, could you imagine? Being able to dream up anything you could want and with enough focus, bring it back with you?? *sigh* Sounds good in theory but in this book we learn that it’s a recipe for disaster. Especially when it’s abused.

I don’t want to say too much about this one as it’s the 2nd book in the series but it’s satisfying and leaves you hanging like whoa. If you haven’t read The Raven Boys then you should and once you do that, read this one. You wont be sorry.

{On a side note: I finally picked up Outlander by Diana Gabaldon but I’m treating it as my “in between books” read. So far it’s good. I’ll review it fully once it’s done… hopefully it wont take too long. A month maybe? :/ }

  1. I’m obsessed with these books. The Raven Cycle is one of the most original stories that I’ve picked up in recent years. It’s just, a game changer in my opinion.
