I have a pretty bad memory and just realized I didn’t write this review the second I was done reading it. Heck, I’m almost done with the third in the series now. Please bear with me as I try my best to write a semi-detailed review. This is one of those series I had to read because a fellow blogger(Anita loves to read) loved them, and I really trust her opinion. The whole story is just fantastic; I’m so glad I grabbed them.
The Dream Thieves does go into a bit of backstory from the first book, which I need as I forget everything. Ronan is easily one of my favorite characters in the raven cycle, along with Chainsaw. I love that a lot of this book is focused on him. The first book left off with that huge chunk of awesome and I knew I couldn’t wait long to find out what happened. Just like the first, I was sad when it was over. It does have more adult themes featuring drug use and other similar issues, but these are things you will find out about around school. They really don’t bug me in books unless it is condoning it. Of course, this book ended on a fantastic note – Trust me when I say it just continues from that point. This series is going to ruin me for YA when it’s over.
I listened to this book particularly on audio because it helps me focus when I run or clean. I’m still not keen on the narrator, but I love this story. If you enjoy fantasy/paranormal young adult books, you’ll love this book. (NOTE: if you have hoopla, all the audiobooks are on there and it’s free with a library card!)
