Blurb; 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?
My Review; After enjoying Strange the Dreamer last year I couldn’t wait to dive into this one. I loved and enjoyed this one even more. However at 522 pages I will admit it took me a while to read! Big books scare me, but this was worth it. There has always been a lot of hype about both these books and I can understand why. It’s certainly unique.
There is just so much going on in this book. Secrets. Fears. Lies. War. Death. Ghosts. Past. Present. Love. Loss. Unexpected twists and turns which keep you turning those pages. Brilliant! A happy ending for all… I’d love to see what would happen next… Never say never. And Lazlo still a sweetheart how his life changed in this story. You never know whats going to happen next… There areany tense, edge of your seat chapters in this story which had my heart pounding.
A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. Really enjoyed it.
