Book Review of “The Dream Thieves” by Maggie Stiefvater

dreamthieves

 

If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys – a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long-lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface – changing everything in its wake. (From Amazon) I give this book, 3.75 stars out of 5.

So, I just finished this book a few moments ago, and like The Raven Boys, it took me while to actually get into the story. That is not really a bad thing, it just a lot of story building. I’m okay with that, when it’s a really good book. Which I consider The Dream Thieves to be. I really do appreciate Maggie Stiefvaters writing style. I am rather enjoying the fact that I have just finished book two and there is still no big love story. I can feel it building, but as of right now, it’s still only a girl and her Raven Boys. Which I find refreshing!

I liked that this book was primarily focused on Ronan, I like his character, and I really wanted to understand why he was so angry all the time. And while learning about Ronan, you still got to follow the other characters in the book. Who I am really becoming to love. I love Blue’s entire house. Every person there seems so eccentric, and fun, and they all care about each other, and the raven boys. I am going to start, “Blue Lily, Lily Blue” tonight. I am getting more and more excited to get to the end of this series, and to see how it finally all works out. Speaking of characters in the book. I am starting to question Adam, I’m not sure that I like him as much anymore.

What did you guys think of “The Dream Thieves”, Who is your favorite character?

 

“It was mint and memories and the past and the future and she felt as if she’d done this before and already she longed to do it again.”
