They tend to be the “I-will-not-hesitate-to-ruin-everything-and-everyone-you-love” instalments. Mister Impossible left me bordering on unhinged; I’ve been so swiftly mindfucked by this book that—upon finishing the last page—I sat there for minutes on end nurturing a mind simultaneously blank from processing what just happened, and overflowing from the emotional whiplash brought on by the last few plot twists. I am in pain. Maggie needs to fix this, like, right now. ────── {⋆★⋆} ────── For years, Ronan Lynch has been my favourite fictional character of all time. How could you not love a gay cottagecore street-racing farmer with mild anger issues and a secretly massive heart? You can’t silly, because he’s the best (alongside his poor bisexual magician genius boyfriend Adam Parrish). Never did I expect to see Ronan’s character arc go down the route I think it is about to go down—his perspective delivered some of the most brutal gut punches I’ve felt from fiction in a while. Maggie Stiefvater is violently steering the vehicle, and us readers have no choice but to tag along for the relentless ride (that I very much hope will end nicely). “Self-hatred is an expensive hobby paid for by other people.” I loved the emphasized exploration of the autonomy of dreams! Jordan is my number one girlboss, and so seeing her navigate her newfound independence brought me endless joy. Her relationship with Declan made me grin like a fool on several occasions—their development was seriously immaculate. Also, I can’t believe that Maggie Stiefvater withheld the fact that Jordan and Henessy have British accents(!!), it makes me love them even more. “Do we have to do this everyday? Just say you want a therapist for your birthday.” Seeing Declan grab hold of true happiness for (probably) the first time in his adult life broke my heart, then fostered the growth of three new hearts to replace it. And MATTHEW- it hurt to see him question his worth so often (he’s an angel), but I adored some of the conversations it opened up between him and Jordan. Dream to dream. That friendship is going to be elite. “Mary, please strike me deaf until the state line,’ Declan said, checking his mirrors, changing lanes, driving safely. He felt Matthew was taking all this a bit far. Declan had put his identity crises on hold multiple times for the greater good. Matthew had only been asked to do it once.” Physical Bryde added so much flavour to this story. The dynamic between him, Ronan and Jordan was so odd and distinctive and strangely perfect. The trio’s every exchange left me wanting for more; it was almost intoxicating to experience the drastic highs and lows each dreamer experienced in the presence of each other, and how drastically their relationship changed from beginning to end. ────── {⋆★⋆} ────── I could drone on and on about Stiefvater’s writing and atmosphere for ages. The Raven Cycle and now The Dreamer Trilogy demonstrate the most convincing portrayal of magic I have ever read. Each time I read something from her, it is like stepping into a world just a hairs breadth away from reality—or what reality could be with a tinge of magic. This series is going to do me in before the last book releases. Here’s to the next year and a half of waiting in emotional turmoil! (I am clinking a mental glass at you all. The pain is real)! 🥂🍻

    I prefer this to Call Down the Hawk, but I need to cover my thoughts in a full review. *Keeping this, because it's a gem.* Maggie, do you realise if you put more Ronan and Adam in this book then you will be financially stable forevermore since I will (a) pay all of your bills, (b)do everything you ask, (c) busk and sing Squash Song on the streets just to earn a pittance for more Pynch content?

    Mister Impossible takes place after the events of Call Down the Hawk, where Ronan and Hennessy, along with the mysterious Bryde, escape the clutches of the Moderators. As they tap deeper into the power of the ley lines in order to make Dreamers stronger, the lines blur and it becomes more and more difficult to answer the ultimate question of all: will the Dreamers save the world, or will they destroy it? “Watching the black-feathered bird rise above the three of them in this strange warm Mister Impossible takes place after the events of Call Down the Hawk, where Ronan and Hennessy, along with the mysterious Bryde, escape the clutches of the Moderators. As they tap deeper into the power of the ley lines in order to make Dreamers stronger, the lines blur and it becomes more and more difficult to answer the ultimate question of all: will the Dreamers save the world, or will they destroy it? “Watching the black-feathered bird rise above the three of them in this strange warm place filled him with a feeling he couldn’t describe, one he’d been feeling more and more since they’d fled. It was like a fullness. A presence, a realness. Before, he had been hollow, drained. No, draining. Becoming empty. And now there was something inside him again. That enormous, warm feeling was charging up inside Ronan again, big enough now that he could tell what it was: Belonging.” This book was a wild ride from start to finish and as I turned the last page, I was trying to figure out if I had any idea what was going on. The answer is hell no. Similarly to Call Down the Hawk, I was trying to figure out what was going on, but having reread the first book in the series and understanding it more, I think I might benefit from another read of Mister Impossible so I can truly understand just what the hell happened in this second instalment. I find it a little difficult to review this book because I feel so much happened but at the same time it feels like not much actually happened at all? But I enjoyed every single minute of reading this book. There’s something truly addictive about the plot of this series, which was unlike my experience of reading The Raven Cycle where I was more invested in the characters over the plot. But for the Dreamer trilogy, I’m equally invested in both. I have to say though, unlike Call Down the Hawk, where I feel as if a similar amount of time was dedicated to both the characters and the plot, I felt like Mister Impossible was more plot focused, with not as much attention paid to the characters. And I understand that some things have to be sacrificed to draw greater attention to other parts of the story, but I would have liked to see a tad more development for some of the characters, which I’ll get to later. “It had been so long since he’d wanted something to happen, instead of wanting something to not happen. He’d forgotten what it felt like. It was equal parts great and terrible. It burned.” “They were going to change the world. They were going to change their worlds. There was no going back. Was he doing this? He must be. What had he been made for, if not for this?” After Call Down the Hawk, I had so many questions. I feel like Mister Impossible took me on a rollercoaster which then added so many more questions. And the only thing I have to say at the end of it all is: what the actual hell is going on? Throughout the whole story, I got this feeling that Stiefvater was nudging Bryde closer and closer to the role of a morally gray character, in that we can see that what he is doing is beneficial, but perhaps not beneficial to all. But then its revealed, and I kid you not I nearly had a heart attack reading these scenes, that Ronan dreamt Bryde? And then my questions increased. How did Ronan not know that he dreamt Bryde? Because when he dreamt Chainsaw, he knew that he had taken her from his dreams. So does that mean that everything that Bryde is doing, isolating Ronan from his friends and family, potentially destroying the world, is something that Ronan wants to do subconsciously? I wanted to know more about Bryde but each thing that was revealed left me with even more questions about him. I feel like when I try and think about it too much I get confused and frustrated but also excited because I feel like there are so many questions I want answered and plot points I want resolved that I have really high expectations for the third and final book in this trilogy. Like I have so many questions. What the hell is going on with the Moderators? If they are dream creatures, who the hell dreamt them? Why did Jordan not fall asleep? What does Bryde actually want? “Matthew stared at his hands. “What if Ronan made me this way? What if he made me how I am?” “So what if he did?” She took his hand and jiggled it. “Why do you think Declan’s got his curls? Why do you think Ronan’s an asshole? We all get handed things from our parents. We all have bodies that obey rules that we deal with. We’re not as different as you think.” This book really took every single character on a journey and it was entertaining to watch but I can’t help but feel like I wanted more. I really, really enjoyed reading this book but at times it felt like it was teasing by offering me a small bit of what I wanted, almost dangling it in front of me, but not fully delivering it all. But the things I said I wanted to see after reading Call Down the Hawk were delivered such as more of the development of the romance between Declan and Jordan, more Matthew and more development of Carmen Farooq-Lane’s character. All of these were such great aspects that I’m going to talk about in more detail but I feel a great sense of satisfaction that everything that I wanted after reading Call Down the Hawk was delivered in Mister Impossible. Like can we please just talk about what an absolute sweetheart Matthew is and how much he deserves to be protected at all costs? I wanted more of him and Stiefvater gave us a Matthew POV? We are not worthy. But seriously Matthew’s point of view was such a gift from god because it was everything I wanted it to be and more. I love Matthew and I love the journey that he goes on in this book and I absolutely love his relationship with Declan and also his new friendship with Jordan, which was just the perfect addition to the story. “When the kiss was done, Liliana said, “What are you going to do instead? I will come with you, of course.” But Farooq-Lane’s voice didn’t waver as she replied, “Save the world.” In my review of the first book in the series, I mentioned that although I liked Carmen as a character, I wanted more from her, and this book delivered, although I do feel as if she wasn’t in it enough and I found myself wanting more chapters from her perspective. Carmen is such an interesting character because I had a feeling that she was going to defect from the Moderators and do her own thing but the way she went about it I wasn’t expecting and it surprised me and made me realise that I don’t actually know everything about her as a character. Also, this romance between her and Liliana? I didn’t even know I wanted it until now. The queer content in this world is so powerful and it’s here to stay. But like I said before, although I enjoyed more of an exploration of Carmen’s past and more development of her character arc, I can’t help but feel like it wasn’t enough. I want to see more of her because she’s now one of my favourite characters in this series. And I also don’t know what her end goal is. “This was perhaps what Declan liked the best about all of this, about Jordan Hennessy: She could handle herself. He’d never had anyone in his life who didn’t need him to manage, guard, chastise, protect. He’d never had an equal—he’d never even known he wanted an equal, and now that she was there, he liked it.” And my favourite aspect of this book was the development of the relationship between Declan and Jordan. This is one of the best things about Call Down the Hawk and the way it was developed in Mister Impossible was just, chef’s kiss. Declan is such an interesting character and the way that he has spent his life trying his best to protect his brothers just makes me want to cry. The sacrifices that he’s given and the life he has put aside just to make sure his family is safe. Every time I think about Declan, I want to cry and give him a hug. But the romance between him and Jordan. Oh my god this is the best thing in the entire world and I just want more, more more. It was SO good. The scenes these two have together are just so well written and the way they bond over art and stories and unpacking each other’s lives and exploring what makes each of them the way they are. Stiefvater has really given us a gift here and I just can’t get enough of it. And I love the fact that we see Declan letting more of his guard down and opening up and falling in love. It makes me so happy to see and I want nothing but the best for these two. They have to be endgame or I’m gonna riot. “She longed for the Hennessy in the car, the one who thought she didn’t care about anything. What a splendid liar she was. She cared about everything.” Although I mentioned that Mister Impossible felt like it had less of a focus on the characters, I still think that the dynamics between the characters are so interesting, such as the ones between Bryde, Ronan and Hennessy (I want to know more about Hennessy’s motivations, like why did she switch sides at the end? What does she want?) and those between Hennessy and Jordan, whose relationship is explored a little more in a way that makes you understand both of their individual characters further. Also, it’s a crime that Adam wasn’t in this book as much. I wanted so much more of him because I love his character. I get that this is the Dreamer trilogy and it’s centred more around Ronan, but I’d honestly love to see a cameo of Gansey, Blue and Henry. Stiefvater, please. Just give me a cameo, even if it’s a small one. Just reunite the gang so they can help Ronan stop making bad decisions. Because what the hell is Ronan even doing? I don’t think he even knows himself. “Ronan Lynch, what do you want?” He took a deep, shuddering breath. The fire was burning everything except for them. “I want to change the world.” Overall, Mister Impossible was such a wild ride from start to finish and if you asked me if I could tell you what happened in this book, the answer would would be no because I have absolutely no clue myself. But the plot was addictive, the characters will forever and always have my heart and I’m both incredibly nervous and incredibly excited for the final book because I just know it’s going to destroy me. i have to wait till 2021 for this?

I inhaled it in just a day and part of me knows that I need to re-read in order to truly absorb everything that went down. This is the kind of novel that leaves you feeling pretty devastated. It seemed like nothing and everything was happening. Plot-wise, well...Ronan, Hennessy, and Bryde go galavanting across Virginia while committing ecoterrorist acts. Sort of. Ronan and Hennessy are pretty chaotic characters who have a predilection for self-destructive behaviours and self-loathing (a great combo). Ronan's chapters in Mister Impossible are particularly elusive and hella unreliable. I read somewhere that Stiefvater's said that this trilogy was about the stories we tell ourselves and ouch...that is exactly what we are getting in Mister Impossible. This was as intense as The Dream Thieves but far more brutal. Things don't get better, people don't always learn from their mistakes or know how to break away from vicious cycles...I don't know, this has me rambling already. Ronan is such a conflicted (and conflicting) character and I found myself wanting to shake him because he does and says some really fucked up shit and whisk him away from Bryde and anyone else who hurts/messes with him. Declan, Jordan, and Matthew's chapters were welcome respites. Matthew is struggling to adjust to the fact that he is a dream and is understandably sick of being treated like a child by Declan. I really liked how Jordan and Declan's relationship developed, their scenes were truly a salve to my weary soul. Their chemistry, their light banter, their art talk. I just loved them together. The narrative is very much about self-divide, art, forgery, reality vs dreams, miscommunication (or even 0 communication), loneliness, chronic illness, and not so great coping mechanisms. A sense of unease permeates the narrative, Ronan’s chapters were especially anxiety inducing. The writing was Stiefvater-levels of clever (funny, exhilarating, surreal, fairytalesque), the pacing was relentless (even if nothing seems to happen...tis' a mystery how she does it), and the characters are as compelling as they are frustrating (Ronan, please, stop breaking my heart). SPOILERS And that ending,wtfStiefvater, who told you to go all Fight Club/Mr. Robot on us?

I just finished the book (and before 1am which is nuts look at me) so I think I'm going to look at my review for Call Down the Hawk and just do a follow up. I made 305 notes this time. Again just on the first read, I felt so many things. I'm going to stick with my assertion I'll only give a comprehensive review of the plot after the entire trilogy is published but I will say, plot wise, I was more invested in this one. Like.

He has gone through so much. But oh my God. So much could have been avoided if we've gotten this boy to a therapist. Also I'm choosing to blame Niall Lynch. FUCK YOU NIALL Adam Parrish I was so mad at Adam for so much of this book. Why didn't he text Ronan back? Why did he seem supremely unconcerned with not talking to Ronan for weeks? What is his deal? ADAM BABY I AM SO SORRY FOR DOUBTING YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME I WAS FOOLED BY THE UNRELIABLE NARRATOR Pynch, aka The Mechanic and the Tool: I AM IN SO MUCH PAIN RIGHT NOW Adam's gloves next to Ronan's gloves being Ronan's only metric for the future????? IT HURTS IT ALL HURTS SO MUCH Niall Lynch barely mentioned in this book, but bOY was his presence felt and so I reiterate B A S T A R D M A N Declan Lynch HE WAS SO CLOSE TO EVERYTHING HE'S EVER WANTED HE WAS GETTING TO BE HIMSELF OUT LOUD HE WAS WORKING WITH ART HE WAS GETTING TO INDULGE IN HIS MORE DANGEROUS SIDE HE HAD HIS GIRL HE HAD A LIFE IT WAS ALL I'VE EVER WANTED FOR HIM BUT HE WAS STILL READY TO BLOW IT UP TO SAVE RONAN TO HELP RONAN TO KEEP HIS FAMILY TOGETHER AND SAFE I SIMPLY CANNOT DEAL I WEPT SO HARD OVER DECLAN Y'ALL Jordan JKEBFJWEFJEFVJWVFJQVFJKFVKJFVKJEFVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH WE WANNA TALK ABOUT FINALLY HAVING A LIFE JORDAN SHE HAS HER OWN STYLE SHE PAINTED AN ORIGINAL PIECE SHE'S A SOCIETY LADY SHE'S GOT A TROPHY HUSBAND THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED ANYTHING I'VE SAID ABOUT DECLAN ALSO APPLIES TO JORDAN BUT ALSO THE MATTHEW OF IT We're getting out of shouty letters for this because one of the things I wanted to see most was Jordan helping Matthew cope with knowing he's a dream and we got that and it was wonderful. One of the major themes of this series is about going into the world and finding your kin. People who understand you, who can help you through life's unique obstacles. It's an extremely queer trope for an extremely queer story and seeing Jordan treat Matthew like he's real and having him see her existing in the world as a real person was so fucking fulfilling. Matthew deserves the world and Jordan ESPECIALLY deserves the world. Matthew Lynch What can I say? We love a rebellious phase. I liked his arc in this book a lot, I like how we finally got his POV and could see how he received the treatment he'd gotten from his brothers for the last several books. He notices that he's being treated like a pet. He knows Declan doesn't see him as a self-sufficient human being. And yeah that's just usual teenage shit but through the lense that he doesn't even think he's a real thing??? Wild shit, man. The Moderators + Visionaries + Farooq-Lane: The moderators were used WAY less in this book and I think that was a good choice. Farooq-Lane quitting the moderators to go run off and be gay with Lilliana? EXTREMELY good choice. And I don't know how the end is going to tie into everything (view spoiler)[WERE ALL THE FUCKING MODS DREAMS???? HOW????? WHY?????? WHO IS THERE DREAMER OR WHO WAS THEIR DREAMER???????? WHAT WAS THEIR ENDGAME??????????????????????? AND WHAT ARE CARMEN, LILLIANNA, AND HENNESSY GONNA DO WITH THEIR GAY GIRLS CLUB THAT SHUT DOWN THE LEYLINE???? EXCUSE ME???????????????? (hide spoiler)] but I am WAY more interested in them then I was last book. Bryde I KNOW THIS MAN I KNOW WHO HIM IS (view spoiler)[Some Fight Club bullshit in here what the FUCK (hide spoiler)] Hennessy At least thirty of the notes in my phone are some variation of the phrase "Hennessy my beloved" She wasn't perfect in this book. But she was real. And I believe she acted well. And also I love her and I'm scared for her And I have no idea what's going to happen next and extremely angry about it. I can't even settle on a definitive emotion for this book. I know I have to read it again. Probably 4 more times. But. God..... What the fuck

    I don’t know what I was expecting, but definitely not that cover. The fuck. Upon further inspection, I can make peace with the cover (kind of) but I´m mad at the title, it makes me think of blockbuster action movies and that's not the vibe at all...
