Please note this is book 2 in the series and spoilers may be present for book 1 in the blurb or my review
The stakes have never been higher as it seems like either the end of the world or the end of dreamers approaches.
Do the dreamers need the ley lines to save the world . . . or will their actions end up dooming the world? As Ronan, Hennessy, and Bryde try to make dreamers more powerful, the Moderators are closing in, sure that this power will bring about disaster. In the remarkable second book of The Dreamer Trilogy, Maggie Stiefvater pushes her characters to their limits – and shows what happens to them and others when they start to break.
Thank you to Scholastic Books for providing me with a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.
Ronan and Hennessy have teamed up with Bryde and are on a mission to save, or destroy, the world, depending on where you’re standing. Jordan has taken off in Declan Lynch’s car. Meanwhile, the moderators are determined to use whatever force necessary to stop the dreamers’ plans.
Being back in the world of the Lynch brothers was so satisfying, although, to be honest, only Maggie could write a book where, when I think back on it, not much happened at all, but I still thought it was great 😄The Dreamer series is definitely shaping up to have a different feel to the Raven Cycle. It’s grittier, more action focused and not quite as lyrical, so I think not comparing the two while reading is key.
Ronan has always been my favourite character by far but I actually really enjoyed the focus on Hennessy, Jordan, Declan and Matthew in this book. Each of them are brilliantly interesting characters I’m so glad we’re getting to know better. Both Ronan and Hennessy were, well, at best a bit naive in their travels and I may have covered my eyes at their short sightedness more than once. Bryde was just…not my favourite person at all and I was also a little sad we didn’t get more Adam in this book. But despite that, I’ll always enjoy Maggie’s books, her characters are never dull!
The ending was mind blowing in the best possible way. Obviously no spoilers here, but, just, yes…it was so worth it 😍
