WOW...Okay so I started this book and life was a little crazy and I couldn't get into the book. I was a little upset about this and thought about possibly having to reread the first one. Well as I got into the book, everything came back and it was great. Maggie Stiefvater is an amazing writer!! No to give anything away but, Ronan let out secrets, Maura, Dean, Adam...So much went on. I can't even comprehend right now.

What can I say about this series that hasn't been said before? Seriously, look for a review of this and everyone is RAVING about how awesome it is! So don't just take my word for it. To sum it up, basically this is a great series, the characters are wonderfully well rounded, I still love the mythology. Basically I loved everything I loved before. Now go read all those other reviews for details. For the full review head to my book blog at so long and thanks for all the fish.

I loved everything about this book, from the cover art, to the quotes on the intro pages, to the very last period. Fantastic second book in the Raven Cycle. I'm very eager for book 3 to come out, but am simultaneously scared that it will be the last book in this series (hoping for more than a trilogy this time). At once dark, humorous, quick-witted, and smart, this is a work of art from a truly talented author.

Just like the last book, this story starts like a slow, foreign train ride- everything is amazing and looks great, but you can't really grasp everything that's going on. Then things start chugging along- the slow start was just to really draw you into the characters so that you are absolutely living with them by the middle of the book. Ronan was my favorite character of the last book (always like the intense ones) and he gets most of this book, with more twists and turns and surprises that just made me love him all the more. The characters all get a little darker in this one, and yet the evilest characters have more depth than you'd think. I agree with k_t in that Stiefvater's writing reminded me a lot of Neil Gaiman- it was so clever, I need to go back and read it closer, instead of speeding through the pages to see what happens next. Don't read this one before bed, unless you want intense dreams.

Like many second books in series, this book meanders and falls short of the first. Not very much really happens, but there's still a lot to like and a lot of backstory information and character growth going on. I'm looking forward to future titles, and hope they return to form!

Did not capture my attention as its prequel had but quite an enjoyable read nonetheless. A lot of 'coming-to-terms-with' is happening in this book which makes it less of a mystical read but more of a coming-of-age kind. Nothing wrong with that, I love the angst, the frustration and ultimately, the acceptance of it all and knowing it's all right. A little slow but we're smack in the middle of the series and hopefully, Maggie still has a few tricks up her sleeve, so not much happening in terms of the search for Glendower. Even though Ronan was somewhat of a central figure in this book, I kept thinking of Adam. Nonetheless, both boys seem to have come out alive and well, both on the inside and outside. P.S. Nice to see at least someone's getting it on in this book lol

Another amazing book from Maggie Stiefvater! If you were afraid the sequel might disappoint, then never fear, this is a wonderful follow up to Raven boys that largely focuses around Ronan's ability to bring his dreams to life.

This series is only getting better, which is saying something because The Raven Boys was a fantastic book. The Dream Thieves picks up about a month where the Raven Boys left off. Adam has become remote and troubled from his bargain with Cabeswater, Noah is reenacting his own death over and over, Gansey is desperately trying to hold everything together, and most importantly, Ronan's dreams have gotten out of control. Deadly things stalk him and follow him into the real world, all while a hit man called The Gray Man is circling closer and closer to something the Lynch family has: the mysterious Greywaren. And to top it all off, Ronan might not be the only dream thief in town...

It is even better than the original, which I hardly ever say for a second book in a series. Stiefvater's use of language and vivid details takes the reader to another world. The momentum is picking up quick and I NEED to read the next one!

Got this on an ARC. I love being a librarian. OMG --- order it. put it on hold. Get it. (If you haven't read book one--seriously? get to it. I'll wait.) I tend to have issues with books 2 of 3, they usually just bridge our first book to our second. I loved the Graywaren storyline. This is one series that I fully expect a thrilling conclusion. I love Maggie Stiefvater. She never disappoints.

This book focuses its attention a little more on Ronan, who, like his father, can pull things out of his dreams and make them real. The team seems mysteriously stalled on its way to finding Glendower, and soon start to break apart under their own pressures. Adam and Blue's tentative relationship is floundering. Ronan is trying to understand and control his abilities -- as well as come to terms with his father's death. A mysterious hit man stalks the team, looking for Ronan even though he doesn't know what he can do.

Noah slouched in. In a wounded tone, he said, "He threw me out the window!"

The Gray Man hated his current rental car. He got the distinct impression it hadn't been handled enough by humans when it was young, and now would never be pleasant to be around. Since he'd picked it up, it had already tried to bite him several times and had spent a considerable amount of time resisting his efforts to achieve the speed limit.
