"Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality. Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it. Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer ... and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed"--

Call Down the Hawk was a delightful read! As the first book in the Dreamer Trilogy, the spin-off of the Raven Cycle Series, I had high hopes for this novel and I was not let down. This story weaves together the mundane and the magical, creating tension by alternating the point of view. All the characters offered something insightful to the story, offering different perspectives on the world they live in. I really enjoyed meeting the new characters, who were not present in the Raven Cycle, and learning what makes them tick. It took me a long time to finish reading this book for the sole reason that I didn’t want this fantastic story to be over. I cannot wait for the next book in this series to come out. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the Raven Cycle or anyone who enjoys a good fantasy novel, as you do not need to read Stiefvater’s other books to fall in love with this one. 5/5

As a standalone book, it's awful . As a continuation of the Raven cycle, it goes even further off the rails than last book, jam-packed with mysterious details and flashing from one character to another, I really hope this is all going to come together in future books. (this has to mean killing off even more characters, as there's still way too many to care about). As a fan of Ronan, I enjoyed the simpler parts of the story, his moments at home with the animals and the interactions with his brothers. I thought the book was advertised as Ronan's story, but it's really Declan's, who is thankfully not really as boring and awful as Ronan painted him.

I ended up buying this book before I even read it (which is rare for me because shelf space is very in demand at my apartment) and Maggie Stiefvater did not disappoint! I have loved everything that she has written and I'm so excited for this trilogy to continue!

This book feels like one of those random ones you'd pick up in middle school and LOVE, but it's for when you're a bit older. There are so many nooks and crannies to this world, and it's so enjoyable exploring them.

Very intense story. Lots of background on the Lynch family and since it ended with "End of Book One", I'm assuming that more of the story is in the works and I can hardly wait.
