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.

 I can honestly say i really didn't enjoy this book, i had such high expectations after the first book and this completely let me down, i couldn't get into it at all, i don't remember a thing about this book and i finished it a hour ago , i didn't connect with the story or the characters even though they are the same characters as last time. i don't know if it was me or it was the writing style because sometimes especially when it comes to Authors like Stiefvater i just cannot get into at least one of their books.

It was very confusing as well i couldn't follow the story line and also i believe it may have also been that i read some pretty negative reviews about this book and thought that it cant be right because the first book was so good but i agree it will probably be my least favourite in the series like most other reviews i have read. 

I really hope the next book is better because i just couldn't take anything in, I have no idea what happened in this book but i forced myself to get through it and i shouldn't have because i feel like if i had taken my time i would have maybe been able to make more sense of it. 

All i can say is, it cannot get any worse than this right now (well it could but i wouldn't like to think like that) so its got to be up hill from here and i cannot wait to read the next book so i can get back to loving this series. 

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
