The Dream Thieves

Ronan for one is falling and deeply into his dreams and his dreams are intruding and into waking life Meanwhile This is the fantastical story of a boy tormented by nightmares that literally literally become real Set shortly after the events of The Raven Boys the students of Aglionby Academy are still on the hunt for a legendary sleeping Welsh king This time while we continue to get perspectives from multiple POVs the story primarily focuses on Ronan Lynch a troubled and angry 17 year old who pulls dark objects out of his dreams But when ley lines running through their sleepy town are awakened incredible power is unleashed and none of the boys are prepared for the ordeal that awaits themI liked The Raven Boys so much that I was nervous going into this one but I think this book actually surpasses its predecessor in no small part because of its sharp eyed character sketches Adam still worries me I feel tremendous love and pity for poor Noah I m eager to learn about the entire Lynch clan And I m finally starting to feel something for Gansey as well as to feel the lovely pulse of connection between him and Blue Add to that a pair of compelling nuanced antagonists in The Gray Man and one willfully destructive Joseph Kavinsky and this world is filled with a host of unforgettable players The author has the ability to create such fierce depth of feeling towards her characters with a single phrase such as a teddy bear of a boy in reference to Ronan s younger brother Matthew whom you immediately want to cuddle and protect all at onceI haven t been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished it I have so many crazy theories about where this uest will lead and I desperately want to know what happens to everyone Aside from thrilling nightmarish scenes gorgeous prose wild revelations shocking deaths and clever humor there are also delicious layers to this novel that you may not fully appreciate until after you re through including distinct symbolism both subtle and powerful sly hidden jokes and a deep complexity of thought and plot and emotion It s such an interesting meditation on the power of dreams and how hidden desire can influence our actions from Ronan s waking nightmares to his mother and father s unusual relationship to yearnings that I won t spoil for youI could also write an entire essay about how The Dream Thieves contains one of the most beautiful heartbreaking kisses in the history of kisses Yes The ENTIRE HISTORY of kisses It s a delicate moment that s suffused with the breathless wonder of discovery and it s all the poignant because it s entirely unexpected and because you are well aware of its context for both parties Tears are literally welling up in my eyes again as I write this because that type of longing and sadness pulls so deeply at my heartThere isn t any way for a single review to do justice to this book but this line from The Dream Thieves sums up its own story rather nicely Magic was real magic was real magic was real And it runs deep and true through Maggie Stiefvater s veins This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisherPS There s a huge spoiler tagged discussion going on down below with theories on what everything MEANS if you d care to speculate But please use spoiler tagsI also participated in a rather epic chat with several authors about this book including Sarah Ockler and RJ Anderson and let me tell you there are no better companions to discuss a story like this with than a bunch of smart passionate authors who are just as excited about the book as you are One of the mind blowing takeaways from that discussion consider the characters as tarot cards I want to reread this book immediately

Some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after Reread on audible MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading ListI LOVE THESE RAVEN BOYSEven though all of the boys are in the book this one tells of Ronan s story and I love him I still love Blue I think she is a great character I love her family all of the banter between them the sweetness between Blue and her mom just everything I feel bad that Blue has to go through all of these emotions with Adam and Gansey Blue knows that she loves Gansey and that finally comes to light but in a very sad way She knows she can t kiss him because she will kill him that is her curse ButOMG sweet Noah let her kiss him because he can t be killed It was a bittersweet moment because she felt like that was the only kiss she would ever be able to give to anyone Blue is a raven girl in my mind Ronan and his sweet little raven Chainsaw I love them both Ronan makes out to be this really tough guy and he is in many ways but he is human He has a human side that does so many wonderful things for people Brings a damn tear to my eye He is also a Greywaren he can bring things out of dreams Unfortunately he brings some nasty things out of his dreams by accident and almost gets him and a few others killed He s not the only one but I m not saying who all have this ability I thought I fell down the rabbit hole again until I finally caught on Adam is going through some tough stuff He s not doing too well since he sacrificed himself for the leyline It all works out in the end thank goodness when he gets some help from one of Blue s many family members Adam had a sad life growing up with a horrible father that beat him having to working three jobs just to have the money to live on his own and go to the school with the other boys He wouldn t take any charity from his friends and it made them sad and angry at times But they did find ways to help him without his knowledge well he found out some things But that s what friends do damn it The reason I m making this point is that he never asked for help until he went to Blue s home and that probably saved his life and we find out something he is now There is also a dude that calls himself Grey Man He is a hitman and he gets a little something going with Blue s mom He is there to do harm to someone in the group but then he just can t There is something really bad he did in the past and I thought it was so sad for the person when they find out Beyond all of the sad things that happen there are many good things And the end the epilogue I was like what I wonder how many people are going to turn out to be other thingsWell I forgot to add my excerpts and when I looked at my page numbers I wrote down they didn t have what I wanted to add I must be losing my mind or was so into the book I wrote down random page numbers Lol
