REVIEW: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle, #2)

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 rating: 4.25/5🌟
My rating: 4.3/5🌟

The second installment of The Raven Cycle tells about the continuity of the first book, The Raven Boys. (Read my review: The Raven Boys) In this book, the author does not only focus on the main characters Blue Sargent and Richard Gansey III, but also Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish.

As the title suggests, The Dream Thieves is about Ronan and his ability to brings both animated and inanimated things from his dreams. Or nightmares.

I absolutely love how Stiefvater writes a story from Ronan’s POV, but at some point I get bored at how lengthy it becomes.

In addition, the tale about the Gray Man, which bears little weight of importance to the story, seems insignificant to me for it to be so detailed. However, I find him an interesting character, so I enjoy his chapters.

As my love for Gansey and Blue grows, I find myself liking Adam lesser and lesser each time. I liked him in the first book, but now it seems that he’s trying too hard to be someone, or something that he is not. And I find it pitiful. I sympathize with him, though.

It is unfortunate that I find it enjoyable, but also confusing at some parts, as there are too many things happening at once, all overlapping with each other.

All in all, this book has some points that make it special and different from the first book, but also lacks some things that could captivate my attention (even more), unlike The Raven Boys.
