About the author

Victoria Schwab is the author of The Near Witch-which Kirkus praised for its "shivery horror tang" and "extraordinary sense of place"-as well as several upcoming novels. Victoria suffers from a wicked case of wanderlust, but when she's not haunting Paris streets or trudging up English hillsides, she can usually be found tucked in the corner of a coffee shop in Nashville, sipping tea and dreaming up monsters.

If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take? Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams. And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things. Ronan is one of the raven boys — a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface — changing everything in its wake. Of THE RAVEN BOYS, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY wrote, “Maggie Stiefvater’s can’t-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two.” Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure. Praise for THE DREAM THIEVES: * "Richly written and filled with figurative language...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." --BOOKLIST, starred review * "Mind-blowingly spectacular... Stiefvater's careful exploration of class and wealth and their limitations and opportunities astounds with its sensitivity and sophistication. The pace is electric, the prose marvelously sure-footed and strong, but it's the complicated characters...that meld magic and reality into an engrossing, believable whole." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review * "A paranormal thriller...this installment [is] more tense and foreboding than its predecessor–and every bit as gripping." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review * "A complex web of magical intrigue and heartstopping action." -- THE BULLETIN, starred review * "Readers who want a moody chill and appreciate an atmospheric turn of phrase will want to spread more time in Henrietta." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review

她陷入一場無法逃脫的惡夢,若不交出自己的記憶,就永遠別想醒來。

檔案館裡的每位看守員都擁有一枚銀色戒指,
為他們敏銳的感知能力阻隔外界的聲響。
然而小麥的惡夢來自內心。
前一次解決「歷史」叛逃的任務在她心中留下了揮之不去的陰影,
於是她只能任憑那些逼真的影像一次次吞噬自己,
包括她的愛情、她的人生、她的一切......

我知道自己應該繼續前進,
應該盡一切可能把這段記憶拋在身後,
或是讓檔案館把它取走。但我做不到。

在阻止了一場亡者記憶逃脫的陰謀後,小麥遲遲無法從事件中平復。
被「歷史」傷害的恐怖回憶不停糾纏著她,
唯一讓生活回歸正軌的方式,是讓檔案館竄改那段過去,
包括她和親密搭檔衛斯理之間發生過的一切。

帶著夢魘的陰影,小麥進入了海德高中展開嶄新的校園生活,
就在「看守員」和學生的雙重身分令她分身乏術之際,
城市裡接二連三地傳出離奇的人口失蹤案件,
湊巧的是,這些人在失去音訊前都曾經與她有過接觸。

難道這段日子的壓力,讓她不自覺地做出傷人的舉動?
或者是其他強大的力量刻意陷害她,在背後操控這一切?
為了證明自己的清白,也為了保護衛斯理的安全,小麥必須盡快查明真相,
然而在調查過程中,她意外找到檔案館成員牽涉其中的證據,
也讓原本效忠組織的小麥漸漸動搖,對不容侵犯的權力興起質疑之心.....

小麥是否能找出失蹤案的凶手?歷史檔案館將帶給反叛者什麼樣嚴峻的懲罰?
在經歷忠誠與背叛,毀滅與新生的考驗後,所有謎團真相亦將呼之欲出!
