THE TOP TEN SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘A philosophical fantasy adventure, an epic love story, a daring quest that demands to be read and reread and deserves to be remembered forever.’ Katherine Webber

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?

As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall and a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, the Muse of Nightmares must take possession her power – and of her fate, and everyone else’s.

Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the international bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.

Publisher Review

Laini Taylor writes like a musician plays, with precision and passion and harmony, each note perfectly placed, leaving her audience overwhelmed and transported . . . MUSE OF NIGHTMARES is a philosophical fantasy adventure, an epic love story, a daring quest that demands to be read and reread and deserves to be remembered forever. -- Katherine Webber As tragedy and triumph and empathy for both humans and godspawn are held in constant tension, the plotting is exquisite, with turns readers will never see coming and that yet make perfect sense in retrospect. * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books * Gorgeously written in language simultaneously dark, lush, and enchanting, * Publisher's Weekly * [Readers] will dive into Taylor's gorgeous prose and brilliant imagery and relish this story about dreams, love, monsters, gods, ghosts, war, and alchemy. Told from alternating points of view, this is complex but satisfying, a story about cultures meeting and clashing * VOYA * Lovers of intricate worldbuilding and feverish romance will find this enthralling * Kirkus * I was afraid to read too quickly because I didn't want it to be over . . . Laini has done something so special with this duology . . . It will leave you changed forever -- Samantha Shannon Consumers of magic/darkness will find their needs amply met. * Strong Words Magazine *
