Seuel to Strange The Dreamer Muse of Nightmares continues from right where the story broke off last time Lazlo now finds himself a demi God whilst Sarai has to accept her new existence as a ghost both however find themselves at Minya s mercy With the little girl hell bent on revenge is there any way of getting through to her and finally putting an end to this terrible cycle of hate and vengeance Though Minya may not be all they have to worry about as a new foe emerges shedding light on old mysteries regarding the Mesarthim Who were they where did they come from and what happened to all those children taken from the Citadel s nurseryI completely fell in love with Strange the Dreamer and as such was avidly looking forward to the seuel though not without a little trepidation too would Taylor be able to live up to expectations All in all I think she did a fantastic job Certainly she managed to answer a lot of the uestions I was left with at the end of the first book mainly regarding the backstory of the Mesarthim She does this by introducing us to two new characters at the very start of the story Kora and Nova Whilst the first chapter did seem a little jarring to begin with as a result it is not long before we return to Weep and follow up on the action right were we left off and I enjoyed the occasional flash back chapters to Kora and Nova after that both for the light they shed on the history of the Mesarthim and also for the incredible bond between these two sisters that is built up in the story Not wanting to give away too much I won t say too much about these characters other than their arc was a very poignant one and a strong component of the bookI also really liked the expansion of the world building and the book ends on a note of great possibility in terms of future books either directly involving some of the characters from these stories or even linking to Taylor s other popular Daughter of Smoke and Bone series Really there is so much scope in terms of the Universe she has created with all its various worlds and racesAs in the previous book Taylor writes beautifully with vivid imagery and prose again bringing her world and characters completely to life Further once again she gives us complex characters as opposed to one dimensional villains such that as a reader you can understand the various characters motives and the reasons for the hatred sometimes driving them Indeed the only true villains across these books were Skathis and Isagol It was also nice to follow up on some of the other Farenji from the first book particularly Thyon Nero whose character journey continuesDid I enjoy this book as much as its predecessor the answer is no I thought there were some pacing issues with the first half of the book uite slow and often treading in circles without really getting anywhere There was a little too much repetition for my liking at times in terms of essentially just stating the stale mate situation the characters were in Also whilst I appreciated the complexity to her characters I do think that Taylor sometimes over forced this both with regards to Minya and Nova I could already appreciate their vulnerability from their backstories to feel some sympathy for them such that I didn t need reminding that I ought to feel sorry for them in every single chapter it rather felt that Taylor really drove the hammer home at times when she could have been a little subtlerFurther whilst I liked the romantic elements to the first book I was less keen on them here as often these parts just felt misplaced and out of tune with everything happening Perhaps it was because the romance be it between Lazlo and Sarai or Feral and Ruby felt rather too teenagerish In contrast the relationship between Eril Fane and Azareen struck a much stronger chord with meOverall still a vastly enjoyable read if not uite as magical and captivating as its predecessor

Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, 2) Read & Download ✓ 100 Laini Taylor å 0 review Free download â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook å Laini Taylor Le 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 seuel to the New York Times bestseller Strange the Dreamer. Warnings While this story is never overly graphic please note that it does contain some scenes of a sexual nature It also contains a few instances of violence against women and heavily implied rape I would not recommend it for young or sensitive readersMuse of Nightmares is a truly stunning novel that is a showcase of Taylor s ability to weave worlds It carries on precisely where its preuel left off and further expands her world in ways I could not have imagined delving deeper into the origins of the Mesarthim and neatly connecting the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogyHowever it is certainly not the novel that I was expecting and I think that this may disappoint some readers The story is filled with twists and turns introducing new characters and full exploring the true nature of the former Gods of Weep While the novel did keep me on edge I personally found some of these twists to be a bit underwhelming as certain things that seemed steeped in mystery had uite mundane explanationsYet I still found that I cold not put the novel down Taylor s third person narrative is as beautiful as ever skipping between the protagonists and giving glimpses into their worlds While the story is not uite as exciting as Strange the Dreamer it was a lot heartfelt It gave itself over to a lot conversation and introspection allowing characters to strengthen their relationships before building to an exciting high stakes finaleThe ending of the novel was deeply satisfying neatly closing off this duology but leaving plenty of space for the Godspawn to have further adventures in the future It was also an ending that was filled with hope as the protagonists were finally able to shed the stigma attached to their heritage and forge their own pathsYet the thing that I loved most about this novel was its characters Although not all of them got the focus that I would have liked Taylor s characters all felt real They were all complex characters with their own goals fears strengths and weaknesses Sarai goes from strength to strength in this story as she discovers new power in death but it is Minya that really steal the show The change that she undergoes in this story is uite incredible giving her time to confront the things that made her a monsterThe addition of Kora and Nova s story also added depth to the world allowing the reader to see what the Mesarthim were like in life and see them in a less godly way In fact my only disappointment was that the protagonists of Strange the Dreamer fade into the background a little While Eril Fane gets some closure I would have liked for Lazlo and Thyon to have had a bit to doAnyhow I think that covers everything While I would not recommend this book to everyone I thoroughly enjoyed reading it The world building was beautiful and the characters were rich and multi layered I can t wait to see where Taylor will take this next
