There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
Wonderfully weird and unique, this book continues the story of Blue, Gansey, Ronan, Adam, and Noah in their search for the sleeping king. Magic, friendship, and family dominate this story. I love being in this world, but I do feel a bit like I've fallen down a rabbit hole. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder. How can people exist from people's dreams? Cars? What is the deal with this sleeping king and the favor? The ley line? Cabeswater? What is Adam's role and what is his connection to Cabeswater? I have many questions and I'm so confused, but I do admire how creative this book is, I haven't read anything else like it. And the characters are strong and memorable. Every single one springs to life on the page, even minor characters like Piper. Stiefvater's writing is achingly beautiful.
Oh, and there are almost kisses. *sigh*
Gansey better not die! I will be heartbroken.
