Goodreads Summary: 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.

Do NOT read this review if you have not read The Raven Boys yet.

Review: 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! 🙂

5/5 Stars
