Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post highlight an upcoming release that you’re excited about. This week my waiting on Wednesday is Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor.
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?
Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
I imagine this has been on everyone’s waiting on Wednesday at some point. I am 100% dying to read this book. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Strange the Dreamer and I absolutely devoured it. It was definitely one of my favourite books of all time and I’m desperate to know what’s going to happen next. I loved the world that Laini created and I’m so excited to dive back into it. I’m hopeful that perhaps my pre-order might even arrive a little early! Laini Taylor writes so beautifully that I know this book is going to be amazing. Muse of Nightmares is publishing 2nd of October from Hodder and Stoughton.
