Absolutely fantastic, I impatiently await the next book! ( )

Listening to the first two books in the Diviners series has me nostalgic. This book almost gives me all the feels that Harry Potter did when I first read it. I usually listen to books on the way to and from work (1 hour commute). Usually when I am just driving about town, I have the radio on. Not the case for either of these books. I had to know what was going to happen next and listened to it whenever I was in the car!

I love the character development, the crazy horror/creepy creatures and plot and I love that I can't really predict what is going to happen. I definitely hope for the best and assume the main characters will come out on top since it is still a YA book, but I never seem to know where the plot is going to take me.

I enjoyed seeing this book through new character's points of view. Henry's story felt like a breathe of fresh air, and the new character Ling while likeable, still grated on the nerves in just the way that I'm sure Libba Bray meant to. I understand why Evie's character was left out more-so in this book compared to her ever presence in the last, but I still wish there had been more from her. I want more Theta, Memphis, Blind Bill, and Jericho! Give them all to me!

A few parts were a little slower and the beginning took a little while for me to get into. Even though I found the dream world very interesting, some parts of it were slow to me.

Hearing more about Project Buffalo has me wanting the next book to come out ASAP! And that ending! Not fair!

Libba Bray, you better not wait another years to publish the third book like you did between the first and second. This is exactly why I don't like starting a series before all of the books are out. I'm seriously not sure if I'm going to make it. I will definitely have to re-listen to these a few times. I will definitely be buying the physical copies!

I positutely loved Lair of Dreams. It was so much fun falling back into this world with Evie and Sam and Theta and all the rest. And some things just felt so timely, particularly in the conversations about the sleeping sickness and xenophobia. I love these characters to the bone and Libba Bray's writing style never fails to impress me. She works tension and spookiness and romance and character growth together effortlessly and I find myself enraptured by the story until the very end. I wouldn't change a thing about this book, I really wouldn't. Looking forward to book three, and also... I really appreciated the nod to Gemma Doyle, that was fun.

I'm afraid for our characters in what is to come, to be honest. I fell so hard for Sam Lloyd in this book and I was quite certain that he wasn't going to make it to the end, because reading books has taught me to just expect the worst. So many loose ends were tied up, but now there are so many NEW ones. I loved every moment of Lair of Dreams, but I'm a little worried that it's going to give me a book hangover, I liked it that much. I definitely recommend this book, and the whole Diviner series to date! ( )

Life Lessons from Lair of Dreams.
It’s good to dream, but you need to have one foot in reality and make those dreams come true when you’re not asleep.

Sam’s mother used to say that inside everyone was the chance to change the world. It sat like a seed eager to grow into greatness. The professor could have his ghosts. Ordinary people were capable of extraordinary bravery. That was the only magic Sam knew or trusted.

"It was funny how one afternoon with a best friend could set a girl right."

So THAT'S why it's called Project Buffalo.

A fun follow-up to The Diviners. Henry and Ling were a highlight; would've loved more of the Memphis, Isaiah, and Bill plotline. ( )

*** 3 out of 5 stars
Review by: Mark Palm
Dreams and Nightmares

The Diviners by Libba Bray was an exceptionally tense and scary YA novel that was essentially the story of Evie O’Neill, a young woman from a small town who ended up in the bustle of 1920’s New York, staying with her uncle, who operates the unusual Museum of American Folklore, Superstition and the Occult. There she meets a diverse crew of characters, and discovers that she has supernatural powers that help her Uncle solve the crimes committed by a serial killer who is more than he seems.

Lair of Dreams takes up the story a bit later. Evie, now famous now for her talents, is a radio star called The Sweetheart Seer, and is trying to stay atop the fiercely competitive world of showbusiness any way that she can. Most of the supporting cast from the first book is back, and it is large and diverse; Theta, Sam, Jericho, Henry and Ling and Memphis; they all have stories, though Henry and Ling take center stage a lot more here, and Ling is the breakout character, stealing the show with her determination and drive. Together the two of them travel through a realm of dreams, trying to solve an epidemic that is making people fall asleep and never awaken. Ms. Bray is excellent in bringing this world to life, (though I found her 20’s slang a bit over-used), and every scene comes to life with exceptional detail. This is a book that you can taste and feel. The plot was well-structured, and it was often genuinely scary it has so much going for it, and taken together with The Diviners I think it’s quite effective. I am giving it a high rating, but I felt that there are some issues that I must address. Although not much longer, Lair of Dreams felt a lot longer than the Diviners.

There are something like eight storylines going on, as well as frequent shifts in point-of view. Ms. Bray also deals with a plethora of social and class issues, which however laudatory, further slowed the pace for me. My last real complaint was that I had to go back and look up a substantial part of The Diviners to be able to find my feet here. If I came to this novel without first reading The Diviners I think that I would have found the going even a bit tougher. Lair of Dreams feels to me like a second part to a three part story, and unless I am wrong that is what it is. When you take the two works together, it’s quite impressive. As a stand-alone novel however, I was not blown away. I have read four of Ms Bray’s novels, and I think that she isn’t capable of writing a bad book, but Lair of Dreams left me eagerly waiting for the next book, but not quite thrilled with this one.
