    This book holds wonder and beauty than most places in the world It’s as if the universe decided that it was tired of being so immense so it compressed all of its complexity and splendor into a smaller form just so it could make everyone around it feel like they were a part of the starsThis whole experience already feels so far away—like something out of a dream—and the whole of my being is wrapped around so much fondness and aching love for this series I genuinely wish I could find some way to hook myself to this world and never leave Once upon a time there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song and then I found you and now everything is music So what's this book about? After the citadel’s lurch from the sky has tipped everyone into grief and chaos Sarai's a ghost now held in Minya’s thrall and all they would ever be able to do about it is what they’d ever been able to do about it nothing And Lazlo—once a faranji dreamer and a war orphan of Zosma—is now confronted with the truth of him being the half human son of a god blessed with the same power that had been Weep’s curse for fifteen yearsNow the scales have a heavy weight on them Minya’s anger like a canker at the center of everything dancing them around a chessboard and Sarai and Lazlo’s hearts are things edged with the fear of it every sweet moment spent together not really theirs but just borrowed for a little while And even though their lives had been so long a thing of hideous dread that for the length of a few pages they’d forgotten to be alarmed by the horror of Minya being the only hook Sarai could tie the tethers of her soul to there is a part of them—and of the reader—spinning and wondering that wants to know how long Minya’s calm and patience would stand how long until it fell or crumbled beneath the hate and fear that weren’t a legacy left by their slayed kindred but new and bright and all her ownHow long before Minya came to chase them out of whatever corner they’ve carved for themselves? Could they defuse the hate that had woven itself into her veins as much as her power had roots under her skin? What will befall Weep if Minya’s will for vengeance made its way to it? Who is the mysterious Nova looking for the Mesarthim who had taken her sister and left her not even scraps of memory to try and catch her with?And what happens when all the secrets so long kept close to the chests of those who held them spill out and prove deadlier than even Minya’s wrath? I would have chosen you if they had let me choose There’s something uite indescriptible about Laini Taylor’s storytelling The fortitude of her bright mind ceaselessly surprises me; I know what to expect and yet I am still thrown off by her ingenuity Lush reverential language and her gift to infuse every page with magic and heady emotions remain a hallmark of her work It’s that rare kind of book that you want to read slowly deliciously relishing every exuisite sentence But Laini Taylor doesn’t only draw you in with sensuous passages she leaves you reeling with a fantastical tale at the thresholds of love and family and identity and there a wish flickers in your heart to become part of the storyI’m also so impressed by how she deftly dances across genres careening between fantasy and science fiction Even inspiring is how she sprawls out from her story’s already expansive beginning to an even broader canvas of magic and war and divinity brilliantly tying the myriad threads of her story together by the end I was honestly split between sorrow and elation after finishing this book the two states seemingly inimical but right then they were sharing the same shadow I genuinely love this book so much And oh my God the charactersI adore absolutely every single character of this book; my heart is a big cherry pie enough for everyone Laini Taylor imbues every character no matter how minor with heart and soul Their development is so beautifully rendered that they all eventually settle into themselves like an impression in the sand and only growing stronger from there ✨ LAZLO STRANGE I love Lazlo Strange so much He holds his eyes wide and sees everything really sees and seems to love it all of it life and the world and everyone in it He’s a gardener and people are his roses His love is so concentrated He literally has the sun inside of his soul and it’s likehow can one person have so much vitality and kindness? He’s the kind of person to whom you would willingly give so much of your heart I was half afraid that the torrents of the collective horror that had been building in this book would wear away at the edges of his soft heartedness but he is still the same gentle dreamer whose nose has been broken by fairytales and whose kindness still radiated from him and made you find faith in humanity again Anyway nothing makes me sadder than the fact that Lazlo Strange will never think about me as much as I think about him ✨ SARAI Sarai the transcendental goddess of my heart I wish she would send her mind and senses and moths winging down to my room and spin whatever dreams she wants to torment meI loved how she thought she wasn’t strong enough to do so many things until they were over and she had done them How she was far from helpless and when in positions of impotency how uick she was to address the issue and attempt to take control in whatever way she can She had passed through a long dark time and had come out of it—if not alive—so much stronger ✨ SARAI AND LAZLO I obviously only ship things that are guaranteed to cause me immense pain but I haven't experienced this much joy since Lazlo Sarai have been in close proximity of each other so there's that I love them I love how they clung to whatever fleeting small precious joy they were allowed how they were a constant reminder that happiness do not cease to exist in the shadow of something large and ominous that surrounding yourself with your loved ones can make you feel human again a person beyond whatever troubles you Everything about them is so soft and heart shaped and I just clutches fist love them ✨ MINYA Minya has spent so long sustaining herself on all the anger she had brewed since that day when the Godslayer slew babies so humans could live She had honed her rage as a razor blade and planned a thousand parries to blows that may never come The Carnage mangled her emotions poisoned her faculties for love and trust until they were so tangled with hate And still she protected Sarai and the others she sheltered them she kept them from the winds that would batter them into the earth They were her family and she was theirs—bound not by something as coincidental as blood but by shared trauma and survival and choice—and that is a bond that could take a great deal of strain before it snappedThis book might have started out as an Us from which Minya was excluded but every acidic confrontation that followed was less about the moment Minya held Sarai’s soul as a bargaining ship and about the vast sweep of their past the warp and weft of old resentments It was about loving the people you care about like you would love the moon—not only when it’s full and bright and being there for them not only when the sun is shining but also when a thunderstorm is brewing inside of themI’m still so incredibly emotional over Minya This kid needs to sit on some soft grass or a foam mattress in the sun to give her cold shadow a soft place to rest She’s always on that pavement that cement in her mind it's not good for her ✨ ERIL FANE Since book one I have felt every stab of the remorse I knew Eril Fane was inflicting on himself The regrets the resentments and all the things that pressed into him and made his heart feel as though it might give and break like a bone The apologies that were too heavy for his tongue and the almost palpable memories of a war where he’d experienced terrible acts of violence and perpetrated many of his own It honestly pained me that he had so many secrets so many fears and places he did not let anyone—not his wife not his mother—bring light intoBut the pain was uickly sucked away in the wake of his incredible character development Eril Fane realizes that a good portion of healing is in simply allowing sensations to arise just sitting with them and feeling them instead of bottling them up He realizes that sometimes in order to survive you must see the good in your past There will always be things that he wishes had never happened things he wishes he could rewrite There will always be bad memories and things that he regrets But they are part of who he is—all he can do is accept that they have happened and celebrate the person they’ve allowed him to become ✨ THYON NERO Reading this book comes with this weird onslaught of affection for Thyon Nero that you never expected but just grows the you readIn the first book and even at the start of this one he’s arrogant self centered and insufferable By the end he still kind of is but with an overlaying sense of responsibility and maturity to uell the worst bits His character development isn’t a complete overhaul but he does end up so much better than when he started He tries to earn everyone’s respect and friendship rather than assuming he deserved it because of his privilege And there is a humility that comes with that understanding It was a good look for him knocking the hauteur away and leaving a remarkably pleasing vulnerability in its place I genuinely thought I have been wrung out of every last ounce of the sincere affection that might have bloomed in my heart for Thyon but he proved me wrongOn a VERY important note my ueer heart has always suspected that Thyon was one of us AND I WAS RIGHT I would lay down both of my kidneys for a spin off series featuring him getting called out on his haughtiness by a certain someone Also I would give up forty years of paycheck for my favorite lesbian girlfriends Calixte and Tzara I love them so much I'm so glad we got to see of them I’m even gladder for Calixte and Thyon’s friendship they’re the epitome of mlm and wlw solidarity ICONIC She had than she had ever dared dream and yet new dreams sprout up when old ones come true like seedlings in a forest a new generation of wishes Lastly if you haven’t found your way to this wonderful series please do so now Trust me you need these characters in your life☆ ko fi ★

    ARC provided by Hachette in exchange for an honest review1 Strange the Dreamer ★★★★★ “I would have chosen you if they had let me choose” Strange the Dreamer was my favorite book of 2017 and Muse of Nightmares is probably going to be my favorite book of 2018 These two books just bring so much love into my heart and so much hope into my soul I have no word combinations to ever begin to describe how much this book meant to me or to do a review worthy of it but I am going to try “Sarai had lived and breathed nightmares since she was six years old For four thousand nights she had explored the dreamscapes of Weep witnessing horrors and creating them She was the Muse of Nightmares” Whenever I try to give a synopsis for Strange the Dreamer I always say it’s about a librarian who is in love with a lost city and a girl who only wants to know what love is Muse of Nightmares is a story all about love and the different kinds of love that we will experience and some that we will never experience in our lifetime The love between found families everywhere between siblings both blood and not between parents both distant and close between lovers both new and old And how all this love makes us choose actions that are both good and bad and all the things in between Love is truly the most complex force in the entire world but when someone loves selflessly it can change everything Sometimes we are unaware of how much power we have inside us especially when that power is kindled from unconditional love “For fifteen years the people of Weep had lived with the certainty that the monsters were dead and Eril Fane had lived with the burden of it” And this book picks right up after the harrowing events in Strange the Dreamer So many of these characters both blue and not are dealing with a monumental amount of sorrow and grief Lazlo the librarian who has finally found the city that has taken over his heart and mind for his entire life is going through the greatest amount of changesIf Strange the Dreamer is about finding the lost city of Weep Muse of Nightmares is about why no one can remember the city in the first place We get so much background on so many different worlds and we get to see them all thread together to create a universe truly unlike anything else But beautiful and terrible things happen in the name of good and bad and we get to see pivotal choices be made that resulted in what happened to Weep “Skathis god of beasts king of horrors daughter stealer city crusher monster of monsters madman” Yet Muse of Nightmares also introduces you to two new characters Kora and Nova They are sisters that were born long before the last Godspawn but the two stories uickly entangle with each other And their sisterhood even though heartbreaking is so damn beautiful Laini Taylor really expands on not only this story but this world and universe too And you’ll uickly see how this can all be connected to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy And even though this was the final book in this duology I believe Laini has so much in store for us I’ve been reading stories for over two decades and in my opinion Laini Taylor is the best storyteller I’ve ever read Her words have such a magical impact on me and I honestly think she has to be a little supernatural to weave words the way she does I’m secretly hoping she is fae You can just feel so much emotion while reading her passages like she truly pours every ounce of herself into the words she uses and I truly think there isn’t another human on earth who can do what she does The word “beautiful” doesn’t even do her prose justice so I’ll just say that it’s completely magical so very immersive and totally enthralling She is easily my favorite author of all time “The gods had been dead for fifteen years after all but their hate had lingered and ruled in their stead” I can’t even believe I’m typing this paragraph but this book also heavily deals with children in cages which is something that I truly with my entire being wish was only in fiction Sadly it’s not Some of the scenes in this book were a little harder than most just because of what is going on in 2018 so please be warned going in Also trigger and content warnings for war themes death torture graphic blood depictions slavery human trafficking a lot of talk of implied past rape rape extreme parental abuse child abuse thoughts of suicide suicide PTSD grief trauma and sexual contentTrauma and grief and how each person deals with those two things very differently plays a huge role in this book Yet this story is a love letter to how we don’t have to be the mistakes of our ancestors We can change we can do things differently and that it’s never too late And vengeance will always be a driving factor but you’ll soon realize that nothing not even redemption will lessen the feeling of loss The only thing that can heal is love but that’s a lesson that is so very hard to learn at times “Once upon a time a sister made a vow she didn’t know how to break and it broke her instead Once upon a time a girl did the impossible but she did it just a little too late” Overall I’m not sure another story will ever touch me like this duology has My review doesn’t even do it justice honestly This is a once in a lifetime story that I will cherish for the rest of my life This isn’t just a shining star in literature but a glowing constellation over the world If you haven’t picked up Strange the Dreamer please do so because I love this series with every bone in my body with my heart with my soul with every fiber of my very being And remember it is never too late to start over and it’s never too late to do good Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publicationForever thankful for Arys for trading me an ARC of what I'm sure will be my favorite book of 2018 You will never know how much this means to me but I promise I'll cherish this ARC forever Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul thank you 💖

    Good little girls don’t kill They dieAnd Minya was not a good little girl I know a lot of us were expecting Muse of Nightmares to be good but I have to say this book actually exceeded my expectations I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but at one point I opened Notes on my computer just to type oh fucking god this is so goodNo spoilers of course The beginning opens by introducing us to two new characters Kora and Nova and their compelling story eventually becomes deeply entwined with the main plot in ways that were unexpected thrilling and sadIf you are that sort of reader this is definitely a crying book There is one scene you'll know it when you come to it that was so heartbreakingly emotional that I had to put the book down for a few minutes to organize my feelings Taylor creates such strong ties between characters that it feels like a physical painful thing when those ties are brokenThe story at the heart of Muse of Nightmares continues Strange the Dreamer in that it's about discovering the origins of Weep and the floating citadel What really happened all those years ago? How did five half human children survive the Carnage and become trapped in a secret prison?Finding out opens up doors to horrors and let me tell you some parts of this are really creepy The little girl thrummed with a dark fervor eyes big and glazed breath fast and shallow skin seeming to crackle with a barely contained energy In a baleful singsong that sent chills down Sarai’s spine she said “You shouldn’t be in here” and Sarai didn’t know if she meant in the nursery or in the dream but the words the tone seemed to slide into a dance with the unmoored shadows and the thrum and it was all getting faster and louder and the shadows were closing in and a terrible dread stirred in her Taylor tells the story in parts through different perspectives and these eventually come together to form a whole The plot and world here are pretty dense but that made it even rewarding for me when I discovered how everything was connected It's such a complex thoughtful and imaginative plot uite unlike anything I've ever read before When a hundred sets of eyes pin you in place and all of them see the same thing how can you not be that thing? The Tizerkane looked at children and saw monsters and Minya’s darkest self rose to the challenge Older characters continue to fascinate while the new additions bring something fresh and exciting to the story Minya for one is such a fantastic messed up character and we get to delve deep inside her mind literally in this book Cute side relationships between Ruby and Feral and Calixte and Tzara offer some much needed light and happiness tooI think overall this is just a really great book It's well plotted it's uniue and it's maybe not the end? 🤞CW view spoilerrape off page; slavery; suicide hide spoiler

  7. Helena of Eretz ✰ Helena of Eretz ✰ says:

    Re read with Laura Lynn and Alison Because we can't only read the first one AHHHHHHHH D “There comes a certain point with a hope or a dream when you either give it up or give up everything else And if you choose the dream if you keep on going then you can never uit because it's all you are”PERFECTION COMPLETE AND UTTER PERFECTION This is what I looked like on release day In fact I didn’t even wait for the school day to end before bolting to the bookstore in excitement Who cares about class when you could be picking up your most anticipated release of 2018?And can I just say how SATISFYING it is whennot only does the aforementioned release meet your expectationsbut it completely surpasses them and blows them out of the water? Every time I think “there’s no way that Laini could top this” and every time I’m proven wrong The woman is a master wordsmith and I aspire to be her apprentice one day The writing style was obviously beautiful and magical as Laini’s always tends to be I also really enjoyed the witty banter from all of the charactersThis was definitely a plot driven novel in comparison with the character driven Strange the Dreamer And whereas the first instalment revolved around Lazlo and we spent the majority of the time in his head this seuel was definitely Sarai’s book although I won’t lieI kind of missed Lazlo as we didn’t spend uite so much time with him sad face This makes sense though seeing that Lazlo’s book is Strange the Dreamer and Sarai’s is Muse of Nightmares Having said that the plot was bloody brilliant The foreshadowing was mind blowing and the world building was massive with multiple worlds and dimensions And the references to the Daughter of Smoke Bone trilogy Everything is connected and Laini Taylor is my world building goddess It was just TOO GOOD “Those seraphim who escaped into the neighbour world Eretz managed to hold the portal closed and they held it to this day pouring their strength into shoring up their sky to keep the darkness at bay A bold young ueen in that distant world was even now training a legion of angels and chimaera to battle the darkness and hopefully destroy it But that’s another story” I’d also like to point out that the chapter titles in this book are GLORIOUSLY HILARIOUS For example “Tea Break from the End of the World” or “From a Long Line of Indignant Nostrils” or “A Man Who Loves You Enough to Come Back to You Even When You’re a Biting Ghost” I shall forever refer to Thyon as “Indignant Nostrils” by the way xD Ruza snorted “But I am a stupid barbarian?”“Did I say so?”“You say it with your face”“That’s just his face” said Calixte in a pretence of defending him “He can’t help having indignant nostrils Can you Nero? You probably come from a long line of indignant nostrils Aristocrats are issued them at birth along with haughty eyes and judgmental cheeks”“Judgmental cheeks?” repeated Ruza “Can cheeks be judgmental?”“His manage” “People are our safe places I have one a person who’s a home and a world to me” BUT THE BEST PART WERE THE SEXY TIMES WITH LAZLO AND SARAI Sooo steamy “The way he looked at her she felt like some kind of miracle as though his dreamer’s eyes cast her in their glow of wonder”The novel picks up right where Strange the Dreamer left off Laini Taylor drowned me in a gorgeous world with rich mythology and beautiful charactersand then left me in emotional turmoil Thanks oh so much xD I took my time and savoured this faery tale of a story I want and hope that she delivers one day especially considering the open ending that we were given Laini’s ruined me for all other fantasy authors for the years to come and I’ll spend my days counting down to her next magical release “Wishes don’t just come true They’re only the target you paint around what you want You still have to hit the bull’s eye yourself”We learn SO MUCH history about the city that fascinated Lazlo since childhoodWeep the city that he studied meticulously and was unknowingly a part of AND WE FINALLY LEARN ITS TRUE NAME Lazlo learns to use his fascinating new powers and to embrace who he truly is He is no longer the shy and meek librarian that he once was Sarai Feral Sparrow and Ruby also finally learn about the world below the Citadel that they’ve always been kept hidden from Minya so broken and so wrathful is also forced to finally face the Godspawn hating world that she’s tried to protect them from She also holds Sarai’s very existence in her hands giving her even power over the Godspawn and Lazlo She has the ultimate bargaining tool “For an instant at least they seemed one and the same as though all anguish exists in the same deep well no matter what loss or misfortune leads us to it We might be at odds hate each other and desired each other’s destruction but in our despair we are lost in the same darkness breathing the same air as we choke on our grief”But despite thatevery single “ villain” in this duology gets a redemption arc which RIPPED MY HEART OUT They all had tortured pasts and were forced to do awful acts in order to empower themselves which was so heart breaking to witness There was so much rage and pain and MY HEART HURTS So I guess I’m now a shell of myself “You’re the good kind of faranji I suppose”
“Oh yes” she said “Very good I even taste good or so I’m told”
He was focused on not falling to his death and so he missed the mischief in her voice “Taste” he scoffed “I suppose they’re cannibals Who’s calling them barbarians now?”
Calixte laughed with delighted disbelief and it was only then too late that Thyon took her meaning Oh gods Taste He flung back his head to look up at her nearly losing his balance in the process
She laughed harder at the shock on his face “Cannibals” she repeated “That’s good I’m going to start calling Tzara that My sweet cannibal Can I tell you a secret?” She whispered the rest wide eyed and zestful “I’m a cannibal too”The faranji My beloved faranji They were amazing Calixte and Tzara Thyon and Ruza Ah their dynamics warm my heart The sassthe humour And to think I hated Thyon in Strange the Dreamer His character development was honestly amazing and everything I ever wanted My only complaint is that they had such small and insignificant roles here I was definitely left wanting Eril Fane Azareen and Suheyla were also highlights for me I’m so happy with how their storylines wrapped up It was beautiful 3 And of course KoraandNova’s storylines made me cry It’s just not fair what Laini Taylor does to me My heart cannot handle all of these emotions She left me SOBBING at multiple points in the book “The gods had been dead for fifteen years after all but their hate had lingered and ruled in their stead”This duology had so much mythology in it that Laini Taylor could’ve definitely stretched this into than two books and honestly I wish that she had But no matter This was a fantastic and satisfying conclusion The ending was also left open enough that it provides hope that someday we’ll be given stories in this brilliant world All I want to see is a crossover of Strange the Dreamer with Daughter of Smoke and Bone Is that too much to ask? ; “You should have seen them Thyon said It was surreal As an afterthought he added Though I can't believe none of them rode the dragon
I know said Ruza What was Azareen's thinking choosing a winged horse when she could have a dragon?
I don't think she was really focused on which creature was best said Tzara 
You shouldn't have to focus on it said Ruza It's instinctive Dragons are always best”I also heard that Laini is considering writing a Thyon and Ruza novella much in the vein of Zuzana and Mik in Night of Cake Puppets about hunting for dragon eggs which I need ASAP DI swear every time I read a Laini Taylor book I’m like “This one This one’s now my favourite” xD How do her books just keep getting better and better? Needless to say this book has replaced Days of Blood Starlight as my favourite book of all time 3 I can’t wait to re read this again next year

    My heart is so Full —————————Initial reviewThis is how I woke up feeling this morning I thought I could not review Strange the Dreamer properly because of how much I loved that book and though I did kinda manage to review it I’m not even going to try with this one My mind is exhausted Laini Taylor had a field day with it and I am wiped The reading experience I had with these books could be summed up in two words healing and spiritualI can’t wait to revisit this world and all it encompassed but that’s for another time When I think I can handle it again Go and bless your souls with these book That’s all I’m going to say Over and out Rambles and thoughts 💭 UK COVER COME THROUGHLook at this beaut though jeezus 😍 I'm currently in the process of reading Strange the Dreamer and wanting this book already even though I'm not even half way through book one US cover is great and all but let's be real UK cover Possibly This could go really wrong Potentially Highly doubt it because UK cover US cover 🙃

    Once upon a time there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song and then I found you and now everything is music This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read I am always mesmerized by how much emotion a single word can carry and Laini Taylor has honed that skill to perfection Her writing is truly divine Every time I read one of her books I never fail to notice that she uses words so perfectly that not a single phrase could have been written any better Every sentence seems near musical and not a single one is out of place Words simple seem to do her bidding and I am forever in awe Inconseuential of the characters the plot and the story her writing is simply magical This book and the last were both absolutely fantastic and are on my favorites list The characters are beautifully written and I love every single one of them from this world to the next and back Lazlo Strange is everything that's right in the world personified in one body His character is one of my favorite things about this series and even though so much happens in this book and the last he maintains a central role in the story which I absolutely loved Sarai Sparrow Feral and Minya each have remarkably different personalities and watching them revolve around one another and now Lazlo is fascinating We also see Eril Fane Azareen Thyon Nero Calixte and Suheyla and all of them play amazing roles in this story however simple they might be The story is exceptionally narrated Every single part of the book contains so much emotion about love loss and heartbreak If you think about it the story is fundamentally very simple but the abundance of emotion that follows every instance is what makes the book so uniuely beautiful Every character brings out emotion from the person they’re standing next to and even when all we hear is the thoughts of one character the depth of emotion that is infused into it is unbelievableThis book reveals a lot about the past of the godspawn and a few new characters are introduced in this world We see so much about Minya in terms of her character and the burden she bears and I loved the part she plays in this story In this book Laini Taylor switches between the story and characters that we already know and another story from this universe’s past This story takes place before that of Lazlo and Sarai and watching this story collide with ours in the present is breathtakingI loved every single sentence in this book and will miss this series dearly I obviously give this book 5 stars and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did
