The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #2)

Hello, my darling readers!
Time for review #2 of Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle. I am quite infatuated with the first book, so let’s see if The Dream Thieves can keep up my excitement!

The Plot:

After waking the ley line Blue and the guys thought they were finally closer to finding Glendower. However, luck doesn’t seem to be on their side.
While the search of the Welsh king isn’t progressing, Ronan, however, does improve in terms of a very special skill. At skill that might land them all in trouble…

The Rating:

So, here’s the deal.
I was a bit disappointed that in terms of Glendower nothing much is going on in this book. It took me a while to get over that as I really wanted to know what would happen on that front.

However, once I moved past that I certainly came to appreciate The Dream Thieves. While Glendower doesn’t so much as take a backseat but has gotten out of the car entirely, this story has lots of interesting moments to offer, nevertheless.

We finally get more of an insight into Romans life, head, and dreams. I needed that info ever since he plucked Chainsaw from his dreams in the first book.

The Raven Cycle just got far more exciting as this new angle moved into the picture. Again, many plot twists I hadn’t seen coming are strewn throughout this book. The setup for the next novel was already great but then Stiefvater had to top it off with a cliffhanger! So, please excuse me while I try to find a copy of the subsequent installment asap!

The Dream Thieves was not quite what I had hoped for. But after I had let go of my initial expectation I was drawn into the story once more. It’s an amazing book that makes me wonder what the next two novels will have in store for us!

  1. Awe, too bad you didn’t enjoy this one. I feel like it’s the book that divides people, because some love it (moi) and others not so much. I was way more fascinated by the dreamer concept though, so I loved going into that and it makes the whole book series feel like a TV show series, where you focus on different people and aspects as you go along and get to know them.
