This is another immersive and riveting installment in teh author's most popular universe, full of fast cars, fragile young adults who can do the remarkable, and extraordinary brothers and sisters. Maggie Stiefvater is a fabulous storyteller, and even when the threads of the propulsive plot become challenging to predict or follow, she always weaves everything together in a way that leaves readers in a state of awe. This one is only slightly less a pleasure to read than Call Down the Hawk, because it's a middle book that veers into the darkness, relegates fan (and personal) favorite Adam to an unsatisfying small cameo, and takes a lot of twists and turns that could dizzy newer fans.

Ronan, Hennessy, and Bryde's sections can grow overwhelming, so the portions with Declan, Jordan, and Matthew are a welcome respite from the other trio's mind games, anger, and magical single-mindedness. Jordan and Matthew's kinship as Dreams makes their interactions candid and sweet. Declan and Jordan's continued slow-burning romance is delightful and much-needed since Ronan and Adam are still apart (although still ever in each other's thoughts). This is yet another exploration of the author's favorite themes: art, cars, dreams, seemingly unlikeable but painfully loyal people (it's no secret that Ronan is her favorite character and the one she considers the most like her).
