Description - Muse of Nightmares: the magical sequel to Strange the Dreamer 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 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?

5 stars

Muse of Nightmares is the eagerly awaited sequel to Strange The Dreamer by American author, Laini Taylor. After the exciting climax of book one, Lazlo finds himself blue (a god) while his new-found love, Sarai, once a god, is now a ghost, having not survived the fall from the citadel above Weep. Minya has Sarai’s ghost tethered, but what she’s demanding in return is surely too much? Meanwhile, the remaining faranjis make a discovery in the rubble of the exploded anchor of the citadel. And long ago, in a land far away, the youth of an arctic town hope for a change in their fates with the arrival of a strange ship of blue-skinned gods.

Taylor concludes her duology by giving her clever and imaginative plot even more twists and turns. Her characters are suitably appealing or repulsive as required, although those stereotypically nasty ones develop further, proving all is not quite so simple. Taylor’s world-building is smooth and subtle: there are no info dumps here. Her descriptive prose is often gorgeous.

This tale has all the required elements of a fantasy adventure: heroes and heroines, gods and goddesses with amazing powers, warriors, ghosts, monsters and fantastic craft, dreams and nightmares, alchemy, magic and a mysterious metal called Mesarthium, cruelty, coercion and kindness, romance and heartbreak, and all contained within a gorgeous cover. All that was left hanging in Strange The Dreamer (which must be read first) is beautifully resolved, while leaving some scope for further adventures. An utterly enthralling conclusion.
