THE TOP TEN SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'A philosophical fantasy adventure, an epic love story, a daring quest that demands to be read and reread and deserves to be remembered forever.' Katherine Webber

In the wake of tragedy, 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? - while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she?

As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel's near fall and a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, the Muse of Nightmares must take possession her power - and of her fate, and everyone else's.

Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the international bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
