Review of The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
”And Ronan was everything that was left: molten eyes and a smile made for war.”
Ah! What a whirlwind trip this book was! I don’t even know where to begin! Again, this story has opened up a world that was so much more than I initially had expected.
I LOVE how character driven this story is. Every single character matters, nobody feels as though their sole purpose is only to progress the story. The characters have such depth to them, it’s impossible not get emotionally attached to them. There were so many moments that I loved in this book. I don’t want get specific as it will spoil things, but each character had very distinct storylines, in addition to the main story that is happening. This is a book of self discovery, acceptance and tumultuous growth. At moments, I’m still not even sure what is happening, but I have faith it will all come together in time and I love that about this story.
And lastly, Stiefvater’s writing. Her style is unique and flows so perfectly, it’s almost hard to explain. I never felt as though I was reading something that was structured and built into a story. Instead it flowed seamlessly, as a story should. She may become one of my favorite authors, yet.
P.S. – Gansey. I have no more room on my BBF list. But I’ll make room for you.
