Book of the Week - The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

If you haven't read Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys, you may want to run out and buy it (or borrow it from your library). It was one of the very best books of 2012 and its sequel is quite different but totally compelling. The Dream Thieves will be coming out in September and if you like complex, twisty, speculative fiction, you will not want to miss this series.

The Dream Thieves
Maggie Stiefvater
Scholastic  2013 - September
Dreams of power and dreams of fright punctuate Stiefvater’s magical followup to The Raven Boys. Blue is sort of dating Adam but refuses to kiss him because of the curse she’s heard her whole life. Roman steals and wrecks Gansey’s beloved Pig, but does he really? Amidst a swirling churning constantly changing back drop of two worlds, Blue, Adam, Roman, and Gansey learn secrets about themselves They encounter dragons and nightmare monsters, a sleeping beauty, and those who can steal objects out of dreams. The Gray Man hunts for the Greywaren but finds something else in the psychics in Blue’s house.  Virginia is at its most surrealistic as strangeness permeates the town of Henrietta.
