Our Thoughts

CW: rape, murder

We loved Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series so we knew that we would like this book. What we didn’t know is what we were missing out on this past year since Strange the Dreamer came out. It’s gorgeous. The worldbuilding is intricate and flawless; the characters have heart and soul and dreams; and the language truly brings everything to life. This world is brutal but full of love and potential for goodness.

The only legitimate complaint we have about this book is that it is a long one. We wish we could have read it over a week or two, but sometimes we are not great at planning so we did it in three days. If you aren’t into long books then maybe walk away from this one, but realize you are missing out on literary gold. We also aren’t okay that we have to wait until freaking October for Muse of Nightmares but let’s blame the publisher not our queen Laini.
