Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stievfater

Title: The Dream Thieves
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Publication: September, 2013

Goodreads Summary: 

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...

My Thoughts:

Maggie Stiefvater is a master storyteller.  It never ceases to amaze me how creative her stories are.  What I love about all of her books is that the fantasy elements blend so seamlessly into the realistic components so that I never have a problem suspending my disbelief.  That is pretty amazing.  

The Dream Thieves is yet another thrilling book from Steifvater.  In this book the characters are all troubled and struggling to come to terms with their own troubles.  The story that results is a magic and compelling story that will make it hard for you to put the book down.

I love the character development in this book.  The author proves the point that no one is all good or all bad and I love seeing this.  It is so hard to talk about the book without giving spoilers so you will have to deal with my cryptic notes for now.  All I know is that I cannot wait to find out what happens to everyone in the next one!

If you have not read The Raven Boys yet, you must go out and read it immediately.  You are going to want to get your hands on a copy of The Dream Thieves as soon as they are available.  You will not regret reading these fabulous books!

I give this book 5 stars out of 5
