◦ 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.
Adam gave himself to Cabeswater. He promised to be it's eyes and hands. He's only beginning to realize what that means.
Blue's kiss will kill her true love. Is it Adam who will die, or Gansey?
Dream Thieves is book two of the Raven Cycle. This feels like a book two. The story continues and we learn ever more about those hunting for Glendower. We are also introduced to other hunters as well. The story ending felt a little like being suspended, not due to poor writing, but because you know this isn't the end. It's not even close. I love this story and the writing is a pure magic all of its own.
So, The Dream Thieves centers largely on Ronan; his backstory and the newly disclosed secret that he can manifest physical items from his dreams. The continuing quest to locate the mythical Welsh King Glendower is still on the forefront of Ganseys agenda, which becomes complicated by the fact that Cabeswater has disappeared. The ley lines have been acting erratically ever since the ritual in Cabeswater weeks ago, and Adam has been increasingly distant, clearly suffering from some sort of inner turmoil which inevitably affects his once budding relationship with Blue. Ronan and the crew piece together clues about Ronans ability to take things from his dreams, while at the same time a mysterious man shows up in Henrietta, tasked with locating and delivering the Greywaren to a powerful paying customer. Secrets, truths, and heartbreaks are at the center of this book with a startling cliffhanger of an ending.
While I didn't love this one as much as the first, I feel like this series has lots of moving parts to ultimately deliver the reader one heck of a story at the end, and book 2 was setting the stage and laying the groundwork for the larger story. I did like that this story focused much more on Ronan, providing us with yet more insight into this hot headed, sharp tongued member of the group. He grew on me immensely as a character. Watching the once budding relationship between Blue and Adam deconstruct was truly heartbreaking. Hell, the internal conflict within Adam himself was heartbreaking. I just felt for the kid yanno? But at the same time I wanted to shake him sometimes. The author creates such a mythical, otherworldly tone with these books that compliments the story of Gwendower well. Even though the setting is modern day in rural Virginia, as a reader you just get a sense of otherness, of something regal and big, something important. I feel like every. single. person in this series is a specific piece in the immense puzzle that is this plot line. Everything from Blues uncertain parentage, the fact that she is an amplifier, her psychic family, Ganseys death and resurrection as a child, Adams ability to control the ley line, and Ronans abilities as a Greywaren. Everyone has a role to play, a role they seem almost destined to play within this story. And I've gotta say, I'm having a pretty great time watching it all unfold.
