Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.
If you didn’t already see it, a few days ago I posted a review of the first book in a cycle called The Raven Boys. Today I’m going to be reviewing the second book with many thanks to Olivia over at Scholastic for sending it my way.
If you’ve not read the first book please do so unless you want to be spoiled for the entire first two books.
Okay, onto my review;
I want to rave and gush and just tell you all my emotions and everything about this book, but I absolutely don’t want to say one tiny thing that would spoil the small, wonderful surprises this book has.
Whilst mainly focusing on Ronan,
No not that one.
The story also covers Blue’s growing affection for Gansey is so well done, as is her growing to desire to kiss and be kissed despite her knowledge of the consequences.
Ronan is a tough guy to like, but as the story openly admits that fact it made me like him so much more. Obviously in this book he faces the drugged up Kavinsky. Ronan has secrets, and Kavinsky thinks he knows what they are but he’s eveeer so slightly wrong. Silly Kavinsky…
The plot meanders, and very little of it seems to have anything to do with the hunt for Glendower. But with the brilliance of her writing, Maggie makes everything feels like it has to do with Glendower.
Overall I loved this book, will be definitely re-reading again soon, and cannot wait to read book 3 because HOW CAN YOU LEAVE IT LIKE THAAATTt????
