Kirkus, Starred Review
“No one but Ronan knew the terrors that lived in his mind.
Plagues and devils, conquerors and beasts."
The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!
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…
". . . more tense and foreboding than its predecessor — and every bit as gripping."
". . . as gorgeous and amazing as the first . . . you'll savor every line."
". . . this story of secrets and dreams, of brothers and of all-too-real magic is an absolute marvel of imagination and an irresistible invitation to wonder."
"Readers who want a moody chill and appreciate an atmospheric turn of phrase (keys hang from the ignition like “ripe fruit,” a farm yard is populated with “deceased pick-up trucks”) will want to spend more time in Henrietta."
"After having so deftly introduced and developed this constellation of characters in the first novel, Stiefvater plies their strengths and weaknesses into an ever more complex web of magical intrigue and heartstopping action."
