Publisher’s DescriptionThe second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

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…

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Likes: Readers get to know Ronan better in this novel as it is focused mainly on his history, secrets and his terrifying yet useful ability to pull things from dreams. One of the best things about this book is that it explores the relationships not only between the characters but between the characters and their personalities.

Dislikes: What I liked so much about the first book was that the lines between reality and the paranormal were blurred. Not so much so in The Dream Thieves. The story seems much more functional and informational. It seems like the magic that was found in the first book is decidedly absent in this one.

badge3v4While this book is still essential to the overall story, I think that the magic that appealed to the reader in the first book is decidedly absent, and so I give this 3 feathers.

  1. I did like getting to know Ronan better but I agree that the level of paranormal jumped up way high and it seemed less believable.
