Author: Maggie Stiefvater

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.

Of The Raven Boys, Entertainment Weekly wrote, "Maggie Stiefvater's can't-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two." Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure.

My Review

Oh. My. God.

This series is seriously just getting better and better! I can’t even put into words how in love I am with this book and series now.

I think my absolute favorite thing about this book series is how freaking weird it is and how many paranormal things are within it. The world seems so normal in the first book, filled with preppy Virginia boys and a house full of kooky women, but it totally does a 180 when all of the psychic stuff turns out to be real and the trees start casually talkin’, in ya know, a dead language.


I seriously think this book was made for me to read. It’s got charming southern boys, creepy paranormal riddles, and literally everyone is sarcastic as hell. That’s pretty much all I need in a book to be honest. Oh, and a ship that is like, doomed if it sails. I mean, that helps too. Everyone knows how much I love forbidden romances.

I don’t really have much else to say in this review, other than go read this series now. And that it didn’t have the whole second book syndrome thing, where it seemed like a filler book and it was boring in places. This book was pretty much incredibly interesting throughout the entire thing and I can’t wait to dive into Blue Lily, Lily Blue! I’m sure it’ll tear my heart apart in all the best ways.

i just have a lot of feelings

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
