From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Raven Boys, a mesmerizing story of dreams and desires, death and destiny.
The dreamers walk among us...and so do the dreamed. Those who dream cannot stop dreaming - they can only try to control it. Those who are dreamed cannot have their own lives - they will sleep forever if their dreamers die.
And then there are those who are drawn to the dreamers. To use them. To trap them. To kill them before their dreams destroy us all.
Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality.
Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it.
Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer...and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed...
Do the dreamers need the ley lines to save the world…or will their actions end up dooming it? As Ronan, Hennessy, & Bryde try to make dreamers more powerful, the Moderators are closing in. In the remarkable second book of The Dreamer Trilogy, Maggie Stiefvater pushes her characters to their limits - and shows what happens to them and others when they start to break.
"To write about magic, it helps if you write like an angel-like, in fact, Maggie Stiefvater, who conjures up an America where dreams really do come true and awful consequences play out with pin-sharp clarity."The Daily Mail
"This new series, somewhat astonishingly for a story this layered, exists independently of its predecessor. It's a different beast entirely, one that circles the complexities of family and the joys and terrors of creating. For all that is new, however, Ronan remains the same; a lodestar that old readers will be happy to return to and new ones glad (if nervous) to discover.”Booklist, starred review
"Stiefvater is a master at creating worlds that are believable, yet unbelievably intricate, and she accomplishes this again with this title… The book becomes difficult to put down as the reader waits to discover the fate of the world. Fans of Stievater’s other books will be excited to start this new series where one can marvel at the very complicated world she created"School Library Connection
"You are made of dreams, and this world is not for you."
