Publisher's Summary

Audie Award, Young Adult, 2016

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 has become a media darling, earning the title, "America's Sweetheart Seer." But not everyone is so accepting of the Diviners' 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?

    Story
    "Another Winner from Bray"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the prose alone make it worth listening to/reading. The narrator makes the story come alive. There are several parts that seem to drag on endlessly, but that is probably due to my own impatience to get to the end. Now, of course, I'm sad that it is over and so I will have to start again from the beginning and savor it this time, so I'm sure I'll like those parts more the second time around.


    What other book might you compare Lair of Dreams to and why?

    I really don't know. Obviously it goes well with its prequel, but these novels are in a league of their own, combining YA romance problems, sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery. I loved Bray's debut trilogy, "The Gemma Doyle Trilogy," AND her book "Beauty Queens," AND this series is quickly joining the list. I cannot get enough of her stories.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Sam Lloyd or Theta Knight


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it is very lengthy, so that is not possible.


    Any additional comments?

    EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS SERIES. Unless you're some kind of fuddy-duddy or you just don't like YA fantasy/scifi novels (basically making you some kind of fuddy-duddy).

    Also, for fans of Bray's previous Gemma Doyle trilogy there's a tiny easter egg/treat in this second book for us!

    Story
    "Libba Bray at Her Finest"

    Libba Bray knows how to tell a story, or, in the case of The Diviners and Lair of Dreams, layers of story upon story. The second in the Diviners series, Lair of Dreams eerily mimics the climate in the US today: the fear of immigrants, the authoritarian views of many, the corruption. Evie and Sam and the rest of the characters pull the reader into a world of yesterday, while, all at the same time, connecting fluidly with the present-day America.

    As far as the performance of the novel, January Lavoy was spectacular. I don't believe I've enjoyed an Audible book as much as I've enjoyed this one; her performance brought the book to life!

    "Better than the first book"

    I bought this book primarily on the strength of January LaVoy's performance, and was pleasantly surprised to find that many of the things that annoyed me about the first book were better here: the characters were more interesting, the plot less formulaic, and the ending more concise. I'm cautiously optimistic for the next installment!

    "A perfect blend"

    an amazing follow up to the original Diviners. a perfect blend of fantasy, mystery, suspense, humor, and romance.

    I started to hate Evil (Evy) a little, but then started to feel sorry for her, but I still think she is one of those love hate characters.

    I loved the concept of dream walking

    I can't wait for the next book. I feel like their are still so many unanswered questions!!

    "January incredible! Libba has an original, scarey"

    My strong belief in God is the only thing that holds me back from 5. loved the book if I skip over some things. This book will knock you out of your shoes, and with the narrative, I had to put it down to catch my breath!

    the author created such a great story and I appreciate how she incorporated the history of new york, immigrant struggles and the past into the story.

    "Love everything about this audiobook"

    January LaVoy does an amazing job changing her voice for different characters including males and different accents.

    Libba Bray is one of my most favourite authors. This story is interesting and well woven. It flows smoothly. No cheap cliffhangers when the story switches who the story is following.

    "Eloquent"

    The writing style of Libba is quite eloquent relating to the 1920s. You can fully image each character in your mind! I enjoyed the readers different voices very much! One of the best! Can't wait for book 3!

    "Setting the stage for the next two books"

    I'm looking forward to the resolution of the series, however I felt that Lair of Dreams was written to bring certain characters together and lay the foundation for their respective relationships. I did not enjoy it as much as its predecessor, and I felt that the arc of the overall storyline does not advance enough in the second book to justify turning what could be a trilogy, into a four-book saga.

    Overall the book still earns a solid 4.5 stars, if only for the sheer beauty that is Libba Bray's writing.

    I am always astounded by Bray's ability to apply current events topics in a way that they can be tied back to real events from past eras, such as the 1920s, making the past or the issues so much more relatable for readers-- and it's not even done in a condescending way, like some authors who shall remain unmentioned *cough* "James Patterson" *cough, cough*
