My Review

5 of 5 The Dream Thieves

The Dream Thieves is the second book in The Rave Cycle. If you have not read The Raven Boys DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT READ MY REVIEW! It will contain some spoilers but nothing to big or major to give away the plot of the book. This is one series that you must read in order to understand what is going on. 

In The Raven Boys we meet Gansey, Ronan, Adam, and Noah. The boys attend a prestigious school called The Anglionby Academy. It is there that Gansey is on the hunt for the ley lines of Cabeswater. While Gansey is in search of the ley lines Ronan is off doing dare devil stunts and anything he cares to do because he is an angry boy. For Noah he just goes to class and hangs with the guys and kind off balances them out. Adam is the scholarship boy who comes from town and has earned his way into the academy. While they all have something different they each bring something that bonds them together.

For Ronan it is all about this ley line that he has chased for years and has finally found it. It is there that he meets Blue the psychic and together they uncover Cabeswater ley lines as well as something no one realized about one of the boys. Dream Thieves begins right where The Raven Boys ended and that is the ley line in Cabeswater is found and Ronan is excited about it. He can'y wait to cross it and find the lost king. But what happens in dream thieves is far more than the boys bargained for.

Ronan has a sweet side we get to see but he is also becoming lost in his dreams and sometimes he can't tell whether or not it is a dream or reality. Ronan's dreams can sometimes be good and sometimes be bad. He will have to wake up and figure out what is reality and what is not.

For Adam we all know Adams background and it is not a good one but for him we get to see sweet Adam has a deep dark side and when it starts to surface no one knows what to do. Will Adam ever be able to get back what was lost to him? Will he ever get his dream?

For Gansey we see that sweet Gansey has a dark side and he is losing control. Ever since he found the Ley Line he has been acting very weird and no matter what the gang tries to say to him he will not listen. Not to mention that others are looking for the ley line and they know he has found it. Everyone wants a piece of the ley line but in the end will it be what they expected?

Noah if you read the first book you know about my sweet quiet Noah. I just love him to pieces because he is the one that has helped Gansey understand the ley line and what happens when you go crazy looking for it. We also get the background on Noah as to who he was and what happened to him.

In this book we get to see each of the boys and what brought them to where they are and to what they want to do. We see the good, the bad, and the ugly with the boys but we also get to see how they love one another and take care of one another never letting anyone or anything come between them. I am dying for book three and a year can't pass by fast enough for me!

Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which she's tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists.

She now lives an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia with her charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids, two neurotic dogs, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.
