Wow! I was so impressed with this 2nd book of the Raven Cycle trilogy. Definitely, a book that stands on its own (well the background story would be nice to have). Part of the credit goes to the awesome narrator of the Audiobook – Will Patton. Patton manages unique and appropriate voices for each character. The other part I really loved about this book, is the way it takes common narratives and breaks them, oh oh, the mother and aunties are letting the Hit Man into their house! danger danger, oh, but these women aren’t stupid, no they’re just braver and more clever than women usually get credit for. This story focuses on Ronin and his abilties to dream objects and bring them back. Also: Great Worldbuilding!
