The Top Ten Sunday Times Bestseller
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?
As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel's near fall and a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, the Muse of Nightmares must take possession her power - and of her fate, and everyone else's.
Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the international bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
About the Author
Hi! I write fantasy books. My latest is Strange the Dreamer , about a young librarian, a mythic lost city, and the half-human children of murdered gods. Check it out :-) Before that I wrote the Daughter of Smoke & Boneted 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.
