The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

by:  Maggie Stiefvater
published by:  Scholastic Press
publish date:  September 13, 2013

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...

This is the second book in the Raven Cycle series.  I like this series a lot more than the Shiver series.  If you haven't yet, do yourself a favor and listen to the audiobooks for these books.  They're read by Will Patton.  If you don't know the name, you probably know his face from movies like Armageddon and TV's Falling Skies.  He's an excellent audiobook reader.  

The Dream Thieves was a really interesting second installment in the series.  This book focused more on Ronan and his gift.  He has the ability to dream things into existence.    This book didn't seem to bring the group any closer to Cabeswater though.  In fact, it didn't appear as though much effort was being put forth towards that goal at all.  

Despite my reluctance to get involved with YA trilogies/series I'm drawn to this one.  I'm interested in seeing where this one goes.  The third book in this series, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, looks like it comes out in October, 2014.

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater is a great supernatural book in the Raven Boys series! Maggie Stiefvater has done a wonderful job of writing and creating a world unlike any other. The editing is much better in The Dream Thieves and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their snarky banter! Fun and interesting series and I have an arc of Blue Lily, Lily Blue from NetGalley and I cannot wait to start reading it!
Highly recommended house cleaning Austin site info
