Publisher's 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....

I took Chainsaw out of my dreams ...

The Dream Thieves is the second book of The Raven Cycle series (following The Raven Boys).

In the last lines of book one Ronan says, "I guess now would be a good time to tell you. I took Chainsaw out of my dreams." It was a great teaser, and book two completely fulfills the WTF that statement left us with. You might think you don't want to read about Ronan, but he ends up being a surprisingly great character, alternately fire/danger and the boy who was crippled by the idea of this strange power and the events of his youth. I love that he's conflicted in all senses - and I love that his dreams and nightmares reveal more than he'd ever let on. There's a particular scene that gets so intense, you can almost feel him on that edge. And even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, if I'm honest, I'm in this for the story of Blue and Gansey. Fortunately, though the main plot focus is Ronan and the dreams, the story does include all of the other characters. Stiefvater's writing is beautiful and haunting and so incredibly interesting that sometimes I want to stop to write some of it down. The characters move forward seamlessly and develop subtly and then, quite suddenly, you realize that Blue and Gansey are in love (I don't really think that's a spoiler, right?) or that Adam is heading toward something great and terrible, or some such spoiler-type thing. This book didn't really "end" for me, but I'm so ready for the next in the series I don't think I mind.

Will Patton narrates.

Awakening the Dream

“The Dream Thieves” deepens the mystery and magic surrounding Cabes Water and the dead king Glendower, while expanding on the characters introduced in “The Raven Boys” – allowing Rowan, more of a group member in “The Raven Boys”, to take center stage. A new villain comes to town, a complex and three dimensional man, who (unusually for a villain), is marked with a conscience, clarity of vision and a sense of humor and he moves the story right along as he wrestles with his own demons and issues. The characters live and grow in an environment rooted in mythology, superstition, friendships with ghosts, living tarot, crazy and often difficult family dynamics, sinister overtones and budding romances. Even the little bird Chainsaw resonates with the reader.

I read this book on Kindle and also listened to it on Audible. Will Patton's Audible performance was, as with his reading of "The Raven Boys" masterful and pitch perfect. I find myself seeking out his narrations now as often as I do the books themselves.

I am really looking forward to reading and listening to Book Three of this series.

YA supernatural adventure with a twist.

What made the experience of listening to The Dream Thieves the most enjoyable?

The southern accent of Will Patton made you feel the southern heat.

What did you like best about this story?

The idea of stealing dream items is unique. The search for a lost king and the social back grounds of 4 very different characters. We know that Blue will kill her true love, we know who it is, yet we are not forced to drown in mushy romantic overkill. There are small touches and thoughts, but the focus stays with the mystery hunt and the developing backgrounds and futures of the characters.

Have you listened to any of Will Patton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Towards the end it became very exciting and it was hard to stop.

Any additional comments?

Worth reading but the 2nd book. The first is called Raven boys

Will Patton did it again

If you could sum up The Dream Thieves in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, exciting and romantic.

Have you listened to any of Will Patton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

His performance on The Raven Boys was just as good as this and I love listening to him, his voice is so soothing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Blue and Gansey in the car, that's all I'm saying, when you listen or read it, you'll get what I'm talking about. Or when Adam presses his fist into the wall.
