This week I am waiting on
Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2) by Laini Taylor
Publication Date: October 2nd, 2018
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 gorgeous sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
I’m a big fan of Laini Taylor. However, I’ve still not read Strange the Dreamer yet, but I’m hoping to do so by the end of the year. I already know that Laini’s writing is evocative and magical, but I’ve been warned about a cliffhanger at the end of the first book, so I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel so I can binge read everything in one sitting.
What’s your most anticipated book?
Have you read Strange the Dreamer?
