The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maggie Stiefvater has pulled me in once again with her wondrous world of the Raven Boys searching still for mythic King Glendower through ley lines. But oh this story has added depth with the dream thieves, that is right- dream thieves are able to take things "out of" their dreams like keys, boxes and did I mention- "night horrors" can escape from thei dreams into the real world. They are scary, big and black apparitions with beaks and teeth and claws that can and will kill. Ronan's dreams have shaped his life, his personality, and his outlook. If you remember Ronan from the first book, The Raven Boys, he was not really likable, mean, but very handsome. I like his bird, Chainsaw and his brother, Matthew. Blue Sargent's family of seers is much more involved and expanded in this 2nd book. The Gray Man is a new character (and Kavinsky) and I will not say too much about them other than to say - read the book!!! The characters of Blue, Gansey, Adam, Noah, and Ronan experience much, grow a lot and the reader just really revels in their trials and tribulations. As the search continues for Glendower, the world of Henrietta and the living quarters of the Raven Boys and Blue's home of 300 Fox Way become entangled in solving the mystery of the Cabeswater and what is sapping its strength. It requires many of the characters working feverishly
toward the stunning climax. I can't wait for Book 3!!! An incredibly, gripping read---love, love, loved it!
