MUSE OF NIGHTMARES, by Laini Taylor, Little, Brown & Company/Hachette Book Group


Sarai has lived and breathed nightmares since she was six years old.

She believed she knew every horror and was beyond surprise.

She was wrong.

In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.

Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice—save the woman he loves, or everyone else?—while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the Muse of Nightmares, has not yet discovered what she’s capable of.

As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected: Where did the gods come from, and why? What was done with thousands of children born in the citadel nursery? And most important of all, as forgotten doors are opened and new worlds revealed: Must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead?

Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this astonishing and heart-stopping sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.

Out October 2018


I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

First and foremost, you will need to read book one, “Strange, The Dreamer.”

The author once again, intrigues you with an exquisite style of writing and author voice lyrical and intense, fully capable of drawing you into the story and making you part of the background where you get the best seats to observe this mysticism of enchantment play out. With powerful character arcs, fantastical settings, incredible journeys both personal and situational, the reader is bound to the story-line until the very end.

This author has discovered a way to play out her imaginative creations using a strong sense of self and inner discoveries while holding the heart and soul of the reader in each word or phrase woven together with clarity and brilliance.

I absolutely love this author’s style and will follow her work in the future.

This book deserves more, but I gave it:
