Muse of Nightmares Reviews
A glorious fantasy, full of pain, heartbreak, redemption and love. Possibly slightly undermined by a too neat ending? I haven't quite decided yet.
This is how you write a sequel - you introduce a set of new intriguing characters with an expansive history of their own, and link their journey with the story of Weep, and make the whole thing 10 times fuller and more brutal.
Frankly, I hadn't been super excited to go back to the conflict at the end of Strange the Dreamer. Lazlo/Minya standoff felt mor ...more
The need is real. So very real.
And there it is.. a cover.. and it's... beautiful... I'm a little weirded out because it doesn't match really with the theme of the first one.. but I am going to go with it and still appreciate how pretty it is <3

1.) Strange the Dreamer ★★★★★
“I would have chosen you, if they had let me choose.”
Strange the Dreamer was my favorite book of 2017, and Muse of Nightmares is probably going to be my favorite book of 2018. These two books just bring so much love into my heart, and so much hope into my soul. I have no word combinations to ever begin to describe how much this book meant to me, or to do a review worthy of it, but I am going to try.
This is how I woke up feeling this morning.
I thought I could not review Strange the Dreamer properly because of how much I loved that book and though I did kinda manage to review it, I’m not even going to try with this one.
My mind is exhausted. Laini Taylor had a field day with it and I am wiped. The reading experience I had with these books could be summed up in two words: healing and spiritual.
I can’t wait to revisit this world and all it encompassed, but that’s for another time. When I thin ...more

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
“Once upon a time there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song, and then I found you, and now everything is music.”
🌟 I feel that the above quote describes my feelings toward this book, after so many disappointments this year, this book comes to change everything to music.
🌟 There are good writers who has good writing styles but are not very good plotters (I have a certain author I like in ...more
Isn't it good when the sequel is every bit as good as the first book. Strange the Dreamer was perfect and Muse of Nightmares does not let it down.
Probably the most amazing part is the world Laini Taylor has created which just gets better and better as this book progresses. The town they call Weep whose real name has been erased from memory, the citadel made in the form of a Seraph, mesarthium, the metal which Lazlo can form into anything and the blue gods. All so good.
The characters too are wond ...more
