Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.
It's Maggie Stiefvater, all I have are praises that you probably already relate to deeply... how could you not? She is an undisputed, undeniable force of nature in the literary world and this book is no exception.
This is literary gold! The World is phenomenal! I am SOOO ecstatic that this series exists since her Raven Cycle series is one of my all time favorites!! I loved Ronan & Adam then and I love them even more now with their own series set in the same beautifully, skillfully, expertly woven world that we have come to love. This short novella focuses on Opal (obviously, it's the title) who is a Dream Thing. She is not exactly like all of the other Dream Things and finding out what sets her apart from the rest is extremely interesting. Her attitude, her likes/dislikes, her mannerisms, her tilted/off kilter relationships/affections for things and people, plus her very unique, overall perspective is a thing to behold and extremely well crafted to boot. Oh, and the Audiobook narrator is AMAZING!!
If you like Raven Cycle and Call Down The Hawk, you'll definitely want to grab this book. If you haven't at least read book one of The Dreamer Trilogy then you're going to have to start there first... you'll be lost in the sauce otherwise. BUT starting with the Raven Boys will help you immerse yourself in the World and get accustomed with the lay (line... pun intended) of the land. You'll quickly be consumed by it like the rest of use Fanatics.
I highly recommend this book... especially in Audiobook format!!
