* "Richly written and filled with figurative language...this story of secrets and dreams, of brothers and of all-too-real magic is an absolute marvel of imagination and an irresistible invitation to wonder." --BOOKLIST, starred review
* "Mind-blowingly spectacular... Stiefvater's careful exploration of class and wealth and their limitations and opportunities astounds with its sensitivity and sophistication.

The ley line is awake and everything has changed. After Adam sacrificed himself in Cabeswater, he isn’t the same anymore and his relationship with Blue becomes more and more strained as he starts seeing strange apparitions and finds it harder and harder to control his emotions. Blue starts to wonder if she is dating the right guy while she starts feeling more attracted to Gansey, the biggest goal of whom it still is to find the mysterious Welsh Raven King Glendower. When Cabeswater suddenly disappears and Ronan’s dreams start following him into his waking life, the group finds itself in danger. They might not be the only ones trying to figure out what is going on with the ley line, and not everyone is as friendly and polite as Gansey.
I love, love, love that Ronan is on the cover. It’s a perfect fit since the story focuses on Ronan for a good chunk of the book. It’s in the same style as the first cover and I love the color scheme. The cool tones convey that mysteriousness and go well with Ronan’s character.
Writing & Plot
It’s no secret that I am in love with Maggie Stiefvater’s writing style. This series is quite different from the Wolves of Mercy Falls books, and while I enjoyed the previous one, I like this one a lot better simply because it was that much more intricate. While I was reading The Raven Boys, especially in the very beginning, I sometimes found it a little hard to get into the story because I need some time to get used to that kind of writing style first, but towards the end I had no problems at all. In this book I was already accustomed to it and able to enjoy all of the story from the very beginning.
I have to admit that there is not that much plot in The Dream Thieves, at least not the kind that would further the main story arc surrounding the search for Glendower. But that doesn’t mean that nothing happens. I feel like the main purpose of this book is to develop the characters and that was done beautifully. It was never boring or dragging on and I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing. It’s pretty impressive that a book that does this can still be this great.
The characters are what make me love this story so freaking much. I have never read another book in which I was so in love with each and every character as I am in this series. I applaud Maggie Stiefvater for being such a gifted writer and making all of them perfect in their own unique but flawed way. I could go on and on for pages about why I found such a special place in my heart for them but I would never be able to accurately describe all my feelings. I think you have to read the book to understand what I mean with that.
These characters are in no way, shape or form easy. They are incredibly complex, deep, twisted, flawed, intricate, a little broken, and so, so lovable. I am so very glad the author decided to put a focus on Ronan here because I think he can be very easily misunderstood. We learn a lot about his past and his family, his dreaming abilities, feelings, and secrets, and all that has made Ronan one of my favorite characters. I was sad for him and happy for him, and at times I just wanted to reach through the pages and give him a hug. When you feel that much with and for a fictional character, I think it’s safe to say that the author has created a piece of art.
"'While I’m gone,' Gansey said, pausing, 'dream me the world. Something new for every night.'" (page 219)
Kavinsky was a super interesting side character and I think his story line arced perfectly, and that’s about all I can say about him without spoiling anything! Blue kind of became more of a minor character compared to Ronan but that was absolutely fine with me. I still really enjoyed reading about her and her crazy family.
"In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them. Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys." (page 11)
Me too, me too, Blue. This accurately sums up my feelings. No other explanation needed.
Now that I’ve written the word “love” about a billion times, I can come to a conclusion. This is definitely my new favorite series. I already had a feeling that it would turn into that after the first book, but now that I’ve read the second there’s no doubt! I am so amazed at how much I enjoyed The Dream Thieves and would recommend the Raven Cycle to anyone! I can’t wait to start Blue Lily, Lily Blue.
Diesmal steht Ronan im Mittelpunkt, der bisher neben Gansey und Adam zurücktreten musste, aber auch die anderen Charaktere kommen nicht zu kurz. Mit Blues romantischen Problemen konnte ich richtig gut mitfühlen, auch ihre allmähliche Entscheidung für einen der beiden (ich versuche nicht zu spoilern) war nachvollziehbar und schön beschrieben. Diesmal war ich sogar von Kavinsky und seiner schrecklichen Zerstörungswut fasziniert.
Wie schon im ersten Buch konnte ich auch hier nicht anders als Maggie Stiefvaters Schreibstil zu bewundern. Sie schafft es immer wieder, ihre Welt der Magie mit bildhaften Beschreibungen und originellen Metaphern zu beleben. Damit beweist sie, dass Fantasy nicht allein von der Handlung lebt, sondern dass ein guter Schreibstil fantastische und märchenhafte Elemente nur noch weiter heraushebt.
Wie erwartet verleihe ich auch dem zweiten Teil der Serie alle 5/5 Sonnenbrillen mit weißem Rand für gelungene Fantasy und freue mich auf die Fortsetzung.
