“How do you feel about doing something slightly illegal and definitely distasteful?”
– The Dream Thieves by 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… – Goodreads
Man this book y’all. If you had trouble working through The Raven Boys (much like myself) push through it because it just keeps getting better and better!
The love that I have for all of these characters is ridiculous, I have such strong feelings for everyone in these book. Eden asked me who my favorite character was and I had such a hard time deciding who I liked the most because I love all of them for different reasons. I came into this book with not such great feelings for Ronan, as I think was intended from the first book, but this book just blew all of that out of the water. (I still think Blue is my favorite.)
There were such great relationships and conflicts and resolutions that I just don’t even know where to start. I loved that while the story of this book followed Ronan and Adam a little more closely than it did Gansey, Blue and Noah I didn’t feel like I was missing anything from not having those characters at the forefront.
In this book you learn so much more about each of the characters lives, like Gansey’s home life in D.C., Maura’s love life, Adam’s struggles, Ronan’s life before his father passed away, and let’s not forget Kavinsky. Ok, sidebar here, I listened to this book through Audible as well as reading it and let me tell you how much I LOVED Will Patton’s narration of this book particularly Kavinsky’s parts!
Overall, this book further cemented my
want need to continue this series and see what Cabeswater has in store for our friends. I’m excited to state Blue Lily, Lily Blue as Eden has maintained that this is her favorite book in the series, so I know it won’t be a let down. Keep an eye out for a review on that one to come!
