Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Evie has a new role to play. She is a media darling with her Diviner talents the showcase. Although many people are fascinated with her newly outed secret, there are others who would have her use her talents for nefarious purposes. Also in the city, people are being stricken by an unknown illness that is putting individuals into a sleeping state that they cannot be woken from. Will Evie and other Diviners be able to work together to catch this killer? Can they continue to walk in this dreamworld without being affected themselves?
Lair of Dreams is the second book in The Diviners series. It is the roaring twenties with flappers, speakeasies and bootleg liquor everywhere. The story begins shortly after the events of the first book and Bray quickly plunges into the new storyline. Without including a lot of review of those events, the key characters are reintroduced and I was able to remember what was needed to enjoy this new adventure. The book was enjoyable, but long. I can’t image the average reader picking it up just because, but for readers who enjoy this time period the story is worth it. It is a second book and I always suggest reading books in order, but if a reader happens across this book first, it could be enjoyed without The Diviners already being read.
