The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater

The sequel to The Raven Boys turned out to be just as fascinating as this first book in the series. In this story the reader is introduced to an amazing idea that I won't go into here, since it would be a bit of a spoiler. I love the main characters and their quest, and the plot isn't - at least to me - at all predictable. In a way, the story is quite dark, but not too bad. The world seems magical and incredible but at the same time completely realistic. Although I probably wouldn't want to live in a female collective like the main character, Blue, does, it's really interesting. Their rambling patchwork house is amazing.  I'd definitely recommend this book and the series to anyone who likes unique fantasy stories.
