Want a book that will leave you gripping the edge of your seat and insatiably hungry for more? Look no further than Lair of Dreams, the sequel to 2012 bestseller The Diviners.
Picking up where the last book left off, readers find their favourite crew of Diviners living out their best lives in 1920s New York City. However, a new plague has swept the city and it’s called the sleeping sickness. Written so devastatingly realistic, it’s a wonder that this disease actually doesn’t exist in the world; and for that we all need be excessively thankful.
Lair of Dreams introduces new characters to the already familiar cast, with dreamwalker Ling Chan being the most pre-eminent and drawing readers into her story as Ms. Bray flawlessly weaves it into that of a main character.
Once you begin reading this book, it will be hard to put down. I read nearly the entire second half of the book in one sitting because I couldn’t possibly wait to find out what happens next. The well-paced, extremely suspenseful book will captivate readers of all ages and urge them to never answer yes to the recurring adage of come dream with me.
