Summary (from Goodreads):
“After a supernatural showdown with a serial killer, Evie O’Neill has outed herself as a Diviner. With her uncanny ability to read people’s secrets, she’s become a media darling, earning the title “America’s Sweetheart Seer.” Everyone’s in love with the city’s newest It Girl…everyone except the other Diviners.
Piano-playing Henry DuBois and Chinatown resident Ling Chan are two Diviners struggling to keep their powers a secret—for they can walk in dreams. And while Evie is living the high life, victims of a mysterious sleeping sickness are turning up across New York City.
As Henry searches for a lost love and Ling strives to succeed in a world that shuns her, a malevolent force infects their dreams. And at the edges of it all lurks a man in a stovepipe hat who has plans that extend farther than anyone can guess…As the sickness spreads, can the Diviners descend into the dreamworld to save the city?
In this heart-stopping sequel to The Diviners, Printz Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray takes readers deeper into the mystical underbelly of New York City.”
I am so in love with this series, and I’m so excited that there are two more books. (This is also great because these books are crazy long. Lair of Dreams was almost 700 pages, but it didn’t feel like it was super long and there were no boring, draggy parts.)
I think The Diviners was scarier, but this one is also incredibly creepy. If scary books aren’t your thing, you may want to give this one a pass.
My only complaint is that we didn’t get as much Evie time in Lair of Dreams but I loved the time we spent with Henry and Ling. (I hope we get more Ling in the currently untitled third book.)
