    I had the perfect plan, I started the audio book right at the beginning of September, and since a 20 hour audioboook usually takes me a month to listen to, the timing of me finishing this would be perfectly timed for when the 3rd book came out. Well, it is only September 6th, and I have already finished it. As far as being a sequel, I can say that I enjoyed this one almost as much, if not just as much, and the first book. There were definitely things I liked more about this book and there were things that I enjoyed more in the first book.The thing that disappointed me a little about Lair of Dreams was that the plot/big mystery/the villain of this book was far less interesting than Naughty John. Pretty early on I was able to figure out who the villain was, and the fact that the our main characters couldn't figure it out just made me frustrated, because it was SO obvious. Also, The dream world was far less interesting to me than a serial killer.What I did love more about this book that The Diviners was that we got more Evie and Sam. I just love those two so much, and one of my favorite tropes in the fake relationship one, so I was living every time I read their parts. Like I was at the end of The Diviners, I am still worried that Libba Bray might make the whole love triangle a huger part in the next book, which while it wouldn't completely ruin the book, it would definitely knock it down a start or two.One thing that I loved about the first book that carried on into this book was the atmosphere of the 1920's. Libba Bray continued to just be amazing and make the reader actually feel like you are in that time period. I also, well I wouldn't say enjoyed, but appreciated the emphasis on immigrants in this book and the prejudice/racism during the time period. The one part that got me the most angry was "The Wolf Among Us" chapter with Sarah Snow. I had to stop listening for a second, because I was so angry that people once (and some still do) think like that. While it was hard to listen to parts like those, I think they are important, and the impact is important.One final thing because I am pretty sure I forgot to put this in my Diviners review, CHECK OUT THE AUDIOBOOK. Libba Brays writing with January LaVoy reading it is just AMAZING.

    4.5 StarsPlot: The struggle with all sequels is not being able to remember what happened in the first book. Luckily, Libba Bray thinks of everything and feeds the reader small snippets of what happened in The Diviners to help jog memory.Libba Bray introduces a new paranormal mystery that unravels little by little. Libba Bray never fails to get me invested in one of her unique mysteries and the tale of the Sleeping Sickness is no different. I will say that Lair of Dreams lacks the creeptastic gore that I came to love in The Diviners. Instead, I connected with Lair of Dreams on a more emotional level.Along with the Sleeping Sickness mystery, Lair of Dreams hints at the overall conflict which leaves the reader with nothing but questions as the novel concludes.Characters: Everyone that you know and love from The Diviners is back, and then some! We are introduced to Ling Chan, the Chinese-Irish-American girl with a love for science and a knack for dream walking. I abso-tive-ly adored her spunk and the amount of love and attention that Libba Bray put into her character.Along with some new faces, the gang reunites and digs deeper into their Diviner gifts. While The Diviners was Evie-centric, I felt that Evie was barely present in Lair in Dreams. Instead, we follow Henry's desire to become a musician and explore his emotional past. My main obsession with this series is Bray's dedication to her characters. Each person that makes an appearance in Lair of Dreams is breathed into life with enough backstory to make you empathize or want to learn more. Evie is clearly going through a rough patch after the events of The Diviners and we are able to see how Naughty Jon affected her and her relationships with others.The love triangle that played second fiddle in The Diviners comes more to light in Lair of Dreams and rips my soul into little pieces. I lost a lot of hope for my ship, but I'm not giving up! NEVER.World Building: While reading this book, I had to actively stop myself from using 1920s slang when talking to family and friends. This world is so engulfing that I physically had to pull myself back to the 21st century. One thing that makes Libba Bray's 1920s so perfect is that she doesn't shy from its brutal history. The KKK rears its ugly head, the Chinese citizens are threatened with deportation, and African Americans have to watch their music stolen from the streets of Harlem and paraded as a White invention. It is also fascinating that the characters remark on The Great American Future and Exceptionalism while damning minorities in the same breath.Short N Sweet: Lair of Dreams is posi-tut-tely thrilling and will have you obsessively refreshing GoodReads for an update on the third installment.

    This second Diviners novel does not disappoint. Libba Bray breathes life into her clutch of main characters, who are as complex and complicated, conflicted and confused, as the readers who immerse themselves in this brilliant and terrifying landscape she has created. Nothing in Lair of Dreams is pat or hackneyed; the young adults at the center of the series are fraught with insecurities and caught in a web of life and death --and what stalks between-- but they are also relatable, familiar in their yearning for love, closure, understanding, and recognition. I love that the larger than life supernatural rush of the plot never takes away from the basic humanity of the characters. The horror of nightmarish evil Bray's characters must work against in Lair of Dreams certainly got into my head, and I read through the wee hours of the night, unwilling to sleep when so much in the novel's world was at stake. I take some comfort in the novel's underlying promise of hope, of good prevailing over evil. The next book in the Diviners series will reveal whether I am right or wrong; either way, I cannot wait to dive in!
