Publisher Description

The highly anticipated, thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer, from National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.

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.

Honestly Laini Taylor is one of the best authors her books are a work of art so unique so different than anything I’ve ever read. I can’t decide which I love more DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE trilogy or STRANGE THE DREAMER duology. There both a MASTERPIECE.

D-marvelous ,

Mind blowing & 100% satisfying.

If you enjoyed Strange The Dreamer, you will absolutely love Muse of Nightmares. From start to finish I could not put it down. It was absolutely addicting.

The way the story comes together by the end is a beautiful masterwork of art. This is Laini Taylor at her best. The climax was intense and lasted a very long time, making it difficult to stop reading. I couldn’t have asked for a better sequel.
