The ending of Maggie's books always make me crave for the next book!! Sadly I didn't like this book as much as I liked the first book. There were parts that I didn't understand immediately. I still don't understand what exactly happened during the scrying that changed Adam so much It is possible that it's because English is my second language and I have trouble understanding complicated words.
How frustrating! Although I am very curious about what's going to happen next, I'm not going to get to the third book immediately because I don't want to have to wait for the fourth book. The wait for Queen of Shadows was agonizing and that was enough for me. I saw the cover today and it's beautiful!! But it's sort of disappointing that the release date keeps getting postponed When I started reading this book, Ronan was probably my least favorite of the Raven Boys. He just seemed so, so angry and explosive for no reason. But then getting into the story and reading more about him and diving deeper into his character, I grew to love him!
He is probably the most complex character in the series and I loved being able to get to know him better. See the things that make him the way he is. Like the first book, The Raven Boys, the writing was beautiful and so imaginative. One of my favorite things about this series is that Maggie writes it in a way that makes it very easy to visualize the scene taking place. I think her work as an artist helps with that a lot.
I love the whole concept of the Greywaren and the things that Ronan can do. I don't really know what else to say without giving things away. So just go read it already! Is that because Ronan is my favorite character and the book centers around him? I loved the first book but there's something about this one that just pushed it over the edge slightly. Still, there's a weird issue I have with this series so far and I'm not entirely sure why.
For some reason I'm having issues remembering all the details of the book. The main stuff is there and I remember pretty much everything but there's still some key aspects that slip through the cracks. For instance, Neeve.
I read this book about a month or so after I read the first one and I completely forget she even existed until she was mentioned in this book and even then I only remembered the very basics of her whole ordeal in the first book. Is that because a lot of the aspects of the series or still a mystery and the pieces still aren't fitting together as nicely as I would like?
Maybe, I don't know.
The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2)
It's strange because I love the story, I love the characters, I love the plot, the writing doesn't bother me. There aren't really glaringly obvious issues I have with either one of the books I've read so far. I think it's a unique enough idea to grab my attention and I am invested in the story and the characters but there's just something about the series so far that's sort of Maybe I'm not immersing myself enough in the story or maybe there's just something about it that keeps losing my attention, I'm not sure.
I don't usually have issues like this but here we are. That being said I'm still loving what I'm reading and if the story itself sounds interesting to you I would at least give it a shot.

It really put me on edge though hah. Ronan's journey was awesome and it was really great to get to have so much of his perspective. I did have an issue though with the pacing. The middle of the book felt like it was dragging just a little bit and the conflicts were fairly predictable.
It seemed that the book was trying to handle a few too many things and didn't know where to put it all. My biggest issue was with the Gray Man's relationship with Maura.

The writing style maintains a dark and brooding tone as Gansey continues to investigate the existence of a ley line, an invisible channel of energy, recently awakened, that may lead them to the ancient Welsh king Glendower. The complicated relationships and plot points are difficult to follow without the background from The Raven Boys. Even with the background, new characters appear: the deadly perhaps Gray Man, Greenmantle, and the idea of a Greywaren.
Now the ley line is inexplicably surging and disappearing, and Adam discovers that his bargain with Cabeswater had unforeseen consequences. Ronan, meanwhile, struggles with the figurative and literal night horrors haunting his sleep until he learns to control what he brings back from his dreams.
