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 gorgeous sequel to the New York Timesbestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
Why I Can’t Wait:
It is soooo close now!!! Next Tuesday to be exact. Muse of Nightmares is the sequel to Strange the Dreamer (review) and also the conclusion to this amazing duology. Laini Taylor is such a lyrical writer, with outstanding world building, and memorable characters. I read Strange the Dreamer earlier this year and I have been dying to get my hands on Muse of Nightmares. I already have it pre-ordered on audible and in hardcover. I will start listening to it first thing on Tuesday morning during my morning commute to work and that afternoon on my way back home. Then I will alternate between the audiobook and hardcover before going to sleep. I cannot tell just how happy that makes me!
