Synopsis
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.

Review
Overall opinion: This was another masterpiece!! It was just as good as the first book in this series!! Maybe even better!! I’m getting the feeling that this is one of those series that start out PHENOMENAL and get EVEN BETTER with every book in the series!!! Maggie Stiefvater once again manages to create a perfect mix of love, tension, friendship, adventure, mystery, magic and so much more!! I am absolutely and utterly in love with this series!! I cannot wait to start reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue the third book in this series!

Writing: The writing was, just as in the first book, wonderful, amazing and incredible! I really like the way Maggie Stiefvater wrote these books! She manages to create the perfect amount of suspense, I just couldn’t stop reading, it was so mysterious with so many secrets left untold! It just pulled me in and didn’t let me go!

Plot: It was of course a continuation of the plot of the first book (which was already amazing) but I think this book’s plot was even better!! I had some more structure and it was really unique and interesting!! It was mainly written from Ronan’s P.O.V. this time so we got to learn a little more about him which I really enjoyed!! I especially loved the dream-aspect of the plot! That was really well done!! What I liked the most is the dreaming aspect!! But I can’t talk anymore about that because of the spoilers :)

Characters: The characters are of course AMAZING!!! I fell in love with them in the first book and now I love them even more!! I’ve got the feeling that I know them better now, especially Ronan. I also really liked some of the new characters like the Gray Man, he was so mysterious!! I really loved that! And of course 300 Fox Way with all its psychics!! I really enjoyed reading about them too!!

Relationships: The relationships in this book are so complex and that’s why it’s so good!! Every single relationship is so well done! They’re not plain, I can see that there is put a lot of thought into them! It makes them very realistic and unique!! All the relationships,  family, friendship, romance etc. are so extremely well done!! They started out in the first book and to see all those characters grow towards each other is such a beautiful thing!!

Layout: Of course, the cover of this book is beautiful!! Just like the first book!! I just love making pictures of the covers!! And I really love the chapter headings with the ley lines :) it’s just all so incredibly beautiful!! 

Flaws: There are absolutely no flaws in this book at all!! It was beyond perfect!! I’m so excited for the rest of the series!!! I think that I can honestly say that I am obsessed with this series!!!

Sum-up: So in short this book is absolutely amazing!! This series is absolutely amazing!!! :) I am so glad I finally started reading this series!! Just read it, trust me you won’t regret it!!
