"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Plot: After the events of The Raven Boys, I knew I had to get my hands on The Dream Thieves. I was a bit surprised that this book didn't pick up right after The Raven Boys with Ronan's big reveal at the end. Instead, The Dream Thieves opens a few months after The Raven Boys while referencing some events that took place between the two books. T
This is very much so a Ronan-centric novel, and much to the chagrin of all the Ronan fangirls out there...I'm not really a Ronan fan. He was a bit too angsty for me and really rough around the edges without many redeeming qualities (I'm sorry, I'm sorry). Becuase of this, I didn't enjoy The Dream Thieves as much as I did The Raven Boys.
I did enjoy how Stiefvater delved deeper into the mystery. I expected this series to revolve around Gansey's search for Glendower, but it's becoming so much more than that. I can't wait until Adam and Blue have their platforms to explore their pasts and how they can all come together in The Raven King.
Characters: I already mentioned my stance on Ronan so I won't won't speak on that too much. I really liked how Stiefvater explored his family though because I found their relationship intriguing and endearing. Next, to Ronan, I thought that Adam was a focal point which worried me about every flip of the page. Every chapter I had the thought of "oh God, something terrible is going to happen to these kids isn't it?" I can tell already that Stiefvater isn't afraid to hurt her characters and I'm already preparing for the worst!
There was an interesting development in the romance which I wasn't the big fan of surprisingly. I found it too easy and almost misplaced with all the chaos happening in The Dream Thieves.
Worldbuilding: There isn't much to add about the worldbuilding. Henrietta continues to enchant me and I enjoyed that we were able to be whisked away and explore Gansey's family in Washington, D.C.
Short N Sweet: While The Dream Thieves wasn't the book I was expecting, it unmistakably helps develop the story a bit further.
◦ The unique and lovable characters
◦ The friendships, the romances
◦ The mind-boggling and never-ending mystery
◦ The writing that left me in fits of laughter and tears
These characters are literally all my best friends now. How did Maggie Stiefvater make me love all of these fictional people?! They all just feel so real, and I’m obsessed with their friendship.
I also like the writing in this book than in the first book. In The Raven Boys, I felt like it dragged a bit and Stiefvater was overly descriptive, but this time everything was just right. Her writing is just so pretty and flowery. The pacing was a lot better, and something new was always happening.
Overall, I am so happy with this book. The Raven Boys was good, but The Dream Thieves was even better! I grew to love these characters even more, learned more about them, and met some new ones. The mystery aspect of this series is genuinely interesting, and I am completely taken off guard with how it has evolved. I’m so excited to start the next book. Every time a question is answered, 100 more questions pop up. Speaking of questions- that cliffhanger!!!!! Maggie Stiefvater is the queen of cliffhangers.
