Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelling Sequel This book takes everything that was amazing in the first book and takes it to the next level. The book follows Ronan far more then the first book did and Maggie did a wonderful job at showing how complex he is as a character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all time favorite. The raven cycle is my favourite series, but this one is my favorite book of it. We get to know the characters even better and fall in love with all their relationship even more. The plot is thick and there's no dragging, i loved every second of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) How is it possible that a second book is better than the first book, which was out of this world amazing? It's hard, but man. This book. This book is everything YA should be. There were so many parts of this book that shocked me. Things that were hinted at in the first book but you never caught onto and then this book exposed them and left you all "wtffff?!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review from Esther's Ever After The first thing I did after finishing The Raven Boys? I made a trip to the nearest bookstore to pick up The Dream Thieves, of course! The Raven Cycle is a very special series, one that I'm still kicking myself for waiting so long to read. And importantly, The Dream Thieves lived up to my (very high) expectations for a sequel to that fantastic read. Reasons to Read: 1. A seamless sequel: The Dream Thieves is a great example of a perfect transition from the first book to its sequel. The transition here was so fluid, it truly felt like a continuation of the same story. The Raven Boys was a very strong start to a series and The Dream Thieves simply builds on that foundation. The plot, world, and the characters are further developed and as a result, the reader is completely immersed in the story. 2. Particular attention is paid to Ronan: Ronan Lynch was introduced as one of the Raven Boys in the first book, but he was more of a background character. The Dream Thieves pays a significant amount of attention to both Ronan's back story and his present struggles. I appreciated the fact that characters aside from Blue and Gansey are given the attention they deserve and treated like people rather than plot devices and Ronan is a perfect example of this in The Dream Thieves. 3. One of the most romantic scenes ever: Romance isn't a must-have for me in a book, but I appreciate a great love story as much as any other reader! The love story in The Raven Cycle hasn't been at all what I expected prior to starting the series, but I'm so pleased with it. For readers who love gradual, swoon-worthy love stories with ever-mounting tension The Dream Thieves captures this story flawlessly. Admittedly, there were a couple subplots which I had a harder time trying to fit into the overall story (such as The Gray Man and Kavinsky) which felt somewhat out of place and forced compared to the remainder of the book. That being said, this was fairly minor for me and didn't detract from my overall reading experience. I love the magic in this series, and I was absolutely blown away by how great of a sequel The Dream Thieves is compared to The Raven Boys as an introduction to The Raven Cycle. Maggie Stiefvater's writing is magical in and of itself, but the world she created here is incredibly intoxicating! Hardcover personally purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love I am in love with all four Raven Boys, and Blue, and all the characters in this book. The characters are all fully realized, the plot is tight, and it is a well built world. Mostly though I am in love with the characters, particularly Adam and Ronan.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Raven Boys"Stiefvater is a master storyteller." -USA Today*"It's a tour de force of characterization, and while there is no lack of event or mystery, it is the way Stiefvater's people live in the reader's imagination that makes this such a memorable read." -Publishers Weekly, starred review *"[A] story very few writers could dream up and only Stiefvater could make so palpably real. Simultaneously complex and simple, compulsively readable, marvelously wrought." -Kirkus, starred review *"The book is marvelous, for not only is it filled with marvels, it is also a marvel of imagination and, more prosaically, structure. Rich, too, in characterization, this fantasy/mystery rises to the level of serious literature, leaving readers hungering for more." -Booklist, starred review *"An incredibly rich and unique tale, a supernatural thriller of a different flavor." -School Library Journal, starred review"Stiefvater's can't-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book 2." -Entertainment Weekly"In a young-adult market crowded with copycats, it's refreshing to find a book that blazes a path as unique as Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys." -Los Angeles Times
