If you need a reason to read this book, I’ll give it to you. Someone can steal things from dreams and bring them to the real world.

You know there are four raven boys; Noah, Adam, Ronan and Gansey. This book is about every one of them and Blue Sargent, but we have more insights about Ronan and his family. There are secrets about him that we didn’t know, but thankfully this book exists.

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them.
Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness.
Her raven boys.”

I’m in love with this series. It has unique characters and when you read more about them, your love for them grows. I like this characters since I started reading about them in the first book. There are so different from each other, but the complement each other in some many ways. On the other hand we have Blue Sargent. She’s part of the group now and honestly, she’s goals guys. Blue is other type of girl… she’s different than other girls. Her hair is beautiful and they way she dress, omg is stunning. You don’t see common girls dressing like she does. My hair is like hers, can I call myself Blue Sargent? Haha.

“He was brother to a liar and brother to an angel, son of a dream and son of a dreamer.”

One of the things I like the most about these books is that the romance isn’t rushed and it isn’t the main part of the story. Yeah, there are some romance-ish moments, but they aren’t everything in these books.  As I said, these books are about those raven boys and Blue, but I liked that Maggie focused more on Ronan in this book. He’s a curious and mysterious character… he hides his emotion and if he decides to show one it would be anger which makes me think “why is he so angry all the time?”. Finally we got some answers in this book. Now we know about his secret; how he can dream and steal take things from those dreams to bring them to the real world. Wait… what? Yes, he can do that. His father was like that, too. Also, there are others like him.

“While I’m gone,” Gansey said, pausing, “dream me the world. Something new for every night.”

Maggie introduces a new character in this book which I love, because he is so honest and mysterious… just like Ronan. Who is he?  Well, he calls himself the “Gray Man”. I really liked his chapters and how he stayed being a mysterious guy. I wanted to know who was his brother because he was scared of him, but I guess we won’t know that… yet? Also, I loved how flirty he and Marta was. Something happened to her at the end of this book, but I would love to see something well developed between those two.

The plot of this book didn’t get slow at all. There was always something new to add to the plot to make it more interesting and intriguing. I enjoy how this books have a little bit of everything and how they keep you wanting to know more. The dream thing is pretty good and unique. Also, I enjoyed reading how Adam grew as a character. I think he was kind of shy in the first book, but he has change a lot in this book. I find that pretty good because it’s important to have well developed characters.

“He danced on the knife’s edge between awareness and sleep. When he dreamt like this, he was a king. The world was his to bend. His to burn.”

Overall, I enjoyed this book so much. Sometimes I got lost for a few seconds, but then everything made sense. I think Maggie is a goddess, because her writing is so beautiful. I highly recommend this book to all of you. Paranormal, magic, unique characters, dream thieves, drag races and sass? Yes, it’s wonderful. Go and pick it up.

I NEED MY COPY OF BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE RIGHT NOW.
