The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater Review

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)
The boys are back "Adam Parrish,gaunt and fair;Noah Czerny , smudgy and slouching;and Ronan Lynch,ferocious and dark" together with "pretty unkillable" Gansey and Blue a.k.a Jane.

Henrietta, Virginia with its farmhouses , cattle and Anglionby Academy is again the scenery of the lives four special boys and a unique girl.

Gansey  wants proof of the imposible and is still searching for the tomb of the Welsh king Glendower "And the conversation was about Glendower.Because when you were with Gansey ,the conversation was almost always about Glendower".

Whoever woke the king was granted a favour and Blue needed it . She really needed it to save Gansey from the death she had forseen.

Blue's feelings both for Gansey and Adam are still unclear, even to her.However, Adam's is well aware of the way he feels."Blue Sargent  was pretty in a way that was physically painful to him. He was attracted to her like a heart attack." But what he wants above all is "to feel awake when my eyes are open".

They are not alone,though, the Gray Man has come to Henrietta to make things harder for them.He is looking for a relic to take objects out of dreams. The dreamer is Ronan ,just like his father was before him, and his house is fool of impossible gadgets from  dreams but  not only things and not only Ronan.

There is a wonderfully sad kiss , if that is possible, full of longing and loneliness.One of the saddest kisses I have ever read about.

Maggie Stiefvater has written the second part of The Raven Boys in the same elegant and rich prose that made me a fan of the author .The characters are very well developed and there are many layers in this wonderful novel that will keep you thinking about it long after you finish the book.
