by Maggie Stiefvater
Oh, how I loved this book.
The first installment of the Raven Boys trilogy I loved as well, but The Dream Thieves jumps straight into the action and focuses on Ronan. We pick up where the Raven Boys left off (Chainsaw was taken from a dream) and we learn about Ronan’s past, his secrets, and his gifts. Elements of this book felt very Neil Gaiman to me.
Stiefvater’s writing is spectacular; the story is dark, dangerous, and creepy and full of hints of mythology. After going to school this summer in Virginia I couldn’t help missing that landscape as I was reading.
Definite read. The only problem is waiting for the last book to be released.
