Publisher Description

From the NYT bestselling author of The Fifth Season comes a rich, original fantasy about a king gone mad with power in a world where magic is harvested from dreams.

In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers -- the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru -- the most famous of the city's Gatherers -- must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill -- or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

The Dreamblood Duology is an omnibus edition that includes The Killing Moon and The Shadowed Sun.

A must read

This book was brilliant! From complexity of the social systems and interpersonal relationships to the thought provoking plot! It’s one of the first books that has kept me up way past my bedtime in a while. I’m sad that I’ve finished it but luckily there are more books from this author that I have yet to read!

Beautifully written!

The Dreamblood Duology have given me many hours of enjoyment. Love the characters, each with their strengths and weaknesses, making them more human and relatable. I can see a third book in the making because it just has so much potential!
