Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after...My thoughts:
I have to say that I enjoyed this one much more than the first. It seemed a lot more cohesive to me and it actually featured Ronan more than the rest of the boys. I was thrilled since even though I didn't warm to him in the first book, he did interest me. You knew his attitude was masking a lot underneath and in this book shows some of his soft underbelly. Not too much, he is still enough of an enigma for those worried he would be too exposed. Still the bad boy of the bunch.
We also have the introduction to the grey man who comes in and stirs trouble. I was skeptical at first about the introduction of this character, but as time went on, he really seemed to fit in with the bunch. I ended up really enjoying this character and seeing where he will take us.
I give this book 4 stars. I think it is better than the first book and I am really wanting the next. I need it now since we were given a bit of a twist in the end. Yes, I did curse the ending. :D
