The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have been looking forward to this book for months, mainly because I was so enthralled with Ronan in The Raven Boys. He was so enigmatic in the first book and shrouded in mystery I could not wait to be unveiled. I just knew he had to have some sort of crazy story behind his dark, cryptic exterior, and I was so not disappointed.
One of my favorite things about this series is the fantasy world the author created within our own world. There are just things that cannot be explained, but you do not question them. They just are, and they work. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters better in this book, Gansey, Adam, Blue, Noah, and of course Ronan, all feel like old friends now. After reading this book, I definitely want more of Adam. He is such a lost soul, and I cannot wait to see where the author takes him.
My other favorite thing about this series has to do with the author's writing. She manages to put together her words into sentences into paragraphs into this entire story in such a beautiful and graceful way. I think if anyone else was trying to lay out prose like her, it would come across forced and insincere. But somehow Maggie Stiefvater pulls it off with amazing ease. It makes me wonder if she really sees the world this way and thinks like this in everyday life…what a strange place her head must be.
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
