I love the way Maggie Stiefvater writes, there is so much in this book: humor, sadness, excitement, trepidations and much more. The characters are much more fleshed out in this novel. You get to understand Ronan, Gansey and Adam better. The last book ends with Ronan saying he pulled the Raven out of his dream. In Dream Thieves it is all about how Ronan pulls items on out of his dreams and how it is tied to Cabeswater and the ley lines. This book has the feeling of almost like Alice in Wonderland or Matrix.
There are tons of things happening in this book. Blue, Adam and Gansey relationship, Adam and his deal with Cabeswater, Ronan with his dreaming capabilities and his relationship with Kavinsky, Noah flickering in and out with the surging of the ley lines. Oh, there is also a hit man in the mix with the name of Mr. Gray. And, Gansey search for Glendower is still there but it isn't as demanding as the last book.
A lot is still not answered from the first book, and on top of that this book has you asking many more questions as well. Also, it ends in cliff hanger, as does most really good books and now I must wait another year!
This book is
terrifying and beautiful, and I can't wait until the final book where
everything will hopefully tie together perfectly.
