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.
The Dream Thieves started a bit slow for me but in no way was it uninteresting. This book really focused in on the ever mysterious Ronan Lynch and get an answer to the last scene in book one. If you remember in the last book, Gansy found Ronan and little Chainsaw his little raven. Later in the last scene Ronan tells the crew that he pulled her from a dream. In this book we discover what that means. Ronan is a Greywaren, he is able to pull things, whatever item he wants from his dreams. Over the course of this book we watch as Ronan learns to control it more and get specific items. We also watch as Blue and Adam attempt to work through their strange relationship. I thought it was cute at the start but now I don't know how I feel. We also see the first admittance between Blue and Gansy that they may like each other but they promise that they can't tell anyone. Especially Adam. This book was so much about the characters. Them growing and facing a different level of adversity. Yet again this book was amazing and I can't wait to read the last two books in the series and see what happens.
