Lair of Dreams (Diviners #2)
THE NEW YORK TIMES #1 BESTSELLER
1920s New York. America's Sweetheart Seer. Diviners dream-walk. Follow them down.
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, and everyone's in love with the city's newest It Girl. Everyone, that is, except the other Diviners, such as piano-playing Henry DuBois and Chinatown resident Ling Chan, both struggling to keep their powers a secret - for they can walk in dreams.
While Evie lives the high life, victims of a mysterious sleeping sickness start turning up across New York City. As Henry searches for 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, New York Times bestselling and Printz Award winning author Libba Bray takes readers deeper into the mystical underbelly of New York City.
'The ambitiously broad focus of this novel strikes just the right balance.Weaving together a chilling mystery with a truly elusive solution, several poignant love stories, agonising injustice, terrifyingly monstrous dreams, and even a cameo by legendary psychiatrist Carl Jung, this instalment wraps enough up to satisfy but clearly sets the stage for more.' Kirkus, starred review
