"As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel's near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected"-- Provided by publisher.
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. Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she's capable of. As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel's near fall, as forgotten doors are opened, the question arises: Must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead? -- adapted from jacket.

An absolutely stunning follow-up to Strange the Dreamer. If you get a chance to listen to the audio version narrated by Steve West, it is not to be missed.

Great and unusual story. The author has quite an imagination. It does become a little complicated to keep track of everyone and their gifts as the book progresses but overall it is a very worthwhile read with a satisfying ending. Am looking forward to the next installation.

The mysteries of Weep are finally revealed in this epic and sweetly satisfying conclusion to the Strange the Dreamer duology, delighting readers with a lushly detailed fantasy world, well-rounded characters, imaginative alternate mythologies, and beautiful prose.

To break the deadlock between the original characters, Taylor relies on the strategy of introducing a new, more formidable villain who poses a common problem for the residents of the citadel. Given the godlike powers already possessed by Sarai and her sisters, this is naturally a bit over the top, an almost literal deus ex machina, if you will. Taylor ratchets up the tension in a conflict where the stakes were already impossibly high, and in doing so flattens some of the emotional impact of her tale. Muse of Nightmares provides revelations and closure, but doesn’t quite manage to recapture the magic of Strange the Dreamer.
