[Review] The Dream Thieves by Maggie Steifvater ⭐️⭐️⭐️


If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he's not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys - a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan's secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface - changing everything in its wake.


I liked the focus on Ronan in this book. The pace is slow though, which is why it took me over a week to finish. The writing is very rich and detailed. I love the inner thoughts of each character. As the reader, we are able to really understand what is going on in the readers head. 

I understand Ronan a lot more in this book. I thought he was selfish and rude and possibly the worst character I have ever read but this book really opened my eyes on who Ronan really is. Towards the end I had gained a deep respect for Ronan. 

This book is weird, but I like weird. I love the uniqueness of this book and the motivation driving Gansey, Blue, Ronan, Adam, and Noah. 

This book has amazing reviews, yet I have given it an okay review. It's just the pacing didn't work for me. I love the concept behind the book but the pacing was just slow.

But towards the ending it picked up significantly. The Gray Man and what happened with Kavinksy, I feel like they would be pivotal factors in the later books.
