Waiting on Wednesday: Lair of Dreams
The book is the sequel to the wildly popular Diviners, a novel about a young girl in 1920's New York City who is capable of "reading" objects and telling the past and future just by touching something.
The sequel picks up after the events of the first novel (duh!)--after Evie helped to solve a string of murders. And now Evie's powers are common knowledge among the public. She's outed herself as a Diviner and gotten all of the publicity that comes with it.
I absolutely adored the first novel. It was honest and a wonderful look at a paranormal telling of the heyday of jazz and speakeasies. And I thought it was awesome how Bray talked about Evie and her trouble with parties and gin. It was interesting and more than entertaining. I'm absolutely looking forward to the next installment.
The pre-released description from Barnes & Noble is short, simple, and sets the stage for a highly anticipated sequel:
After a supernatural showdown with a serial killer, Evie O'Neill has outed herself as a Diviner. Now that the world knows of her ability to "read" objects, and therefore read the past, she's become a media darling, earning the title, "America's Sweetheart Seer." But not everyone is so accepting of the Diviner's abilities...
Meanwhile, mysterious deaths have been turning up in the city, victims of an unknown sleeping sickness. Can the Diviners descend into the dreamworld and catch a killer?
Lair of Dreams will be released August 5 by Little, Brown Books.
