Description

The first hardback print run of Muse of Nightmares will have beautiful sprayed edges. Available for pre-order only! Don't miss out on this extra-special version of the book.

'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


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 the 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.

Review quote

[Taylor]'s always been a wordsmith, and this book is no exception, but the attention she pays to the people who aren't the heroes, the care given to ordinary life and its immense importance, elevates this from an entertaining epic to a deeply necessary, sometimes devastatingly so, work of art * Booklist * As always, Taylor is a master of sweeping fantasy as well as unforgettable characters that will break your heart. * Shondaland * 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

About Laini Taylor

Hi! I write fantasy books. My latest is MUSE OF NIGHTMARES, book 2 of STRANGE THE DREAMER. Check it out :-) Before that I wrote the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE trilogy, which has been translated into 32 languages. It's about a blue-haired art student raised by monsters, a broken angel, and a war that has raged for 1000 years in another world. I also wrote LIPS TOUCH: THREE TIMES, which was a National Book Award finalist, and the DREAMDARK books. As well as various short stories and novellas.

Thanks for reading!!
