Book #79: Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author 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…


I jumped into The Dream Thieves as soon as I finished The Raven Boys. I probably loved this book more than the first one and it’s all because of Ronan. At the end of the first book, Ronan revealed a big secret to the gang: how he found Chainsaw.

Ronan is my favorite character in this series and one of the focus characters in this book. He is angry, has a temper, and gets in trouble constantly. His anger is because of a bunch of things piled up. I would go into detail, but you learn more about him.

The second focus character is Adam. From the ending events of the first book, Adam has changed dramatically. He is off balance and very angry. Whereas he was endearing in the first book, I found him upsetting in this one. That isn’t to say he doesn’t change, he does, but it takes a while and he will never be what he was like in the first book.

In The Dream Thieves we learn more about the ley line, Cabeswater, and Ronan. We are also given a few new villains. Each one is important to the ley line and the possible discovery of Glendower.

Speaking of the sleeping king, the group is only barely one step ahead. Most of everything focused on Adam, Ronan, and the ley line. All of them are intertwined and it was great to see how they connected.

As the same as before, I bought the third book fairly early on. The downside is that it’s a paperback. I have the first two in audio and Audible doesn’t have the third book. That isn’t to say I wasn’t going to buy the hard copy of the book though. I was. I just wanted to continue the series in the same vein before jumping into a different medium.

Anyways, it won’t be long before I open the third book and dive in.
