Parties are wild. And the dead are coming After battling a supernatural sleeping sickness that early claimed two of their own, the Diviners have had enough of lies. They're more determined than ever to uncover the mystery behind their extraordinary powers, even as they face off against an all-new terror. Out on Ward's Island, far from the city's bustle, sits a mental hospital haunted by the lost souls of people long forgotten--ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the man in the stovepipe hat, also known as the King of Crows. With terrible accounts of murder and possession flooding in from all over, and New York City on the verge of panic, the Diviners must band together and brave the sinister ghosts invading the asylum, a fight that will bring them fact-to-face with the King of Crows.
Once this thought arrives, it stays. It sticks. It lingers. In this deeply suspenseful and irresistibly unnerving debut novel, a man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. When the two take an unexpected detour, she is left stranded in a deserted high school, wondering if there is any escape at all. What follows is a twisted unraveling that will haunt you long after the last page is turned. In this smart, suspenseful, and intense literary thriller, debut novelist Iain Reid explores the depths of the human psyche, questioning consciousness, free will, the value of relationships, fear, and the limitations of solitude.
Tense, gripping, and atmospheric, this novel pulls you in from the very first page…and never lets you go. Iain Reid. I'm Thinking of Ending Things 1 of 3. I'm Thinking of Ending Things 2 of 3. I'm Thinking of Ending Things 3 of 3.

Jan 08, Elaine marked it as to-read Shelves: I'm sorry Libba Bray, I love you and your amazing books but this cover My heart can't take it.
The title is kinda cool and probably linked to our new villain's power. But the synopsis, UGH. Yep, that's the Evie we know and adore. April , right. Damn it. So according to the amazing Ms Bray's tweet, this book will be coming to us in Spring View all 48 comments.
Short Review: Might be more of a 4. I don't know if I loved it quite as much as the first book. There were a few little things that irked me and I felt it was a little slow in parts. But otherwise, I really enjoyed it and it was worth the wait! Very scary, intense and creative, and I love the characters. Can't wait for the next book in the series--although I assume I will have to wait a long time. P Full Review: Coming eventually! Expected publication: Mar Short Review: March 11th Update: Lair of Dreams I like it.
Very mysterious. Update on the update: I just noticed the expected publication has been moved to April 22nd. You've got to be kidding me. And another update: Yo, is that really the cover? Hmm I don't know how I feel about it It also doesn't really match the first book's cover at all. Buuut maybe it's just a mock-up thing and not the final one? And another one: Aaaand the release date has now been moved all the way to August 5th. And the nightmare continues: April 1st, Libba, why.
And one more update: But according to this , the release date will not be postponed again. View all 32 comments. Nov 10, Faye, la Patata rated it really liked it Shelves: This was literally my face when I finally finished this gigantic, monster of a book.
It was like the clouds finally parted and the divine rays of the heavens showered upon me for I have seen the light. The light being Libba Bray's amazing prowess, that is. There is no other reason why this happened except for one thing: I'm at that point where I would love to be this author's apprentice. I'd do her laundry, brew her coffee, do This was literally my face when I finally finished this gigantic, monster of a book.
How does she string words and sentences together and make them sound like a piece chewed out from Beethoven's musical fingers? I swear, her words are so mesmerizing and lyrical and just Half of the book, I said the words out loud.
Do you hear that?! That's why it took me so long to finish it, because I loved it so much I didn't just want to read the words, I wanted to hear them, too. But seriously speaking, even though I had some problems with the writing being in third person omniscient ex. We waited three years for the second book, and you can easily tell that in that span of time, Bray wrote this book with care and love.
Yes, it's true that it takes a long time for the book to set-up the setting first, the mystery our friends need to uncover, and pretty much the dynamics of our old and remaining characters, but I didn't care. Because every word was well-placed, every sentence had meaning, and every page contributed to the setting, the world-building, and the characterization and development of our characters.
It was so, so immersive. Hell, just the other day, this happened: My mother: I finally finished that pesky Cookie Jam level! That's just the bee's knees, mom! I think you mean beeswax. I mean Yup, I have all the slang in my head now.
I can't help but put them in everything! But really, the atmosphere is just amazing. Not only did it get that department right, but the mystery, paranormal, and horror aspects were so well-written, too. There was never a dull moment for me. Even though there were chapters where it would show someone else totally not related to the main cast, I gobbled them all up and they all still made me feel so many things - trepidation, anxiousness, exciteness, and fear.
Fear for our friends, for our friends' friends, and for the rest of the people because so much is at stake. Imagine being trapped in a never-ending nightmare, a state where you can never, ever wake up from. Now, imagine Bray writing said scenes in a creepy, intense way. I don't know about you, but there were nights were I waited for the sun to rise before heading under the covers.
And the characters! Man, they were so vibrant and electrifying and so charismatic. I loved Evie and her sass. Even though she did some things and said some words I don't personally agree with, I loved that her character was so consistent, to the point where you'd go, "Ah! I may not like what she did but it's something her character would do.
In fact, I'd wager this is more his book than Evie's and I loved it. He's so soulful and has a romantic, kind heart that all I wanted for him was to find his own happiness in a sea of uncertainty and unseen horrors. And Ling! The half-Irish half-Chinese fellow dreamwalker who was tough as nails and a welcome addition to the gang. I loved how strong-willed she was, how she didn't let her being a cripple get in the way.
I didn't like Sam that much in the previous book, but here, he made my heart go swoony-swoon-swoon with his charisma and happy-go-lucky personality.
My only real gripe right now is the love triangle It was kind of frustrating to see Evie's heart go fluttery for guy 1 and then have her stomach go butterflies for guy 2, and then be confused later with her feelings for both guys. Hopefully we will be done with this nonsense come book 3 please don't take 3 years, though?
All in all, what a solid and beautiful installment. It has everything - atmosphere, world-building, mystery, build-up, action, tension, characterization and development. The writing made it so easy to consume trust me, you'll want this in audio because you won't be able to help but need to hear the words out-loud. I simply couldn't put it down. Apr 25, Whitney Atkinson rated it really liked it Shelves: These are such highly recommended audiobooks, and I cannot agree more.
Although they each last around 20 hours, it flies by and feels like you're watching a movie. All the characters have their own voices and turmoils and backstories, and it's such a masterfully done character study while also dealing with paranormal issues and plot. There's some characters who I care about more than others, such as the fact that I love Memphis but I think Isaiah and Bil 4. There's some characters who I care about more than others, such as the fact that I love Memphis but I think Isaiah and Bill's chapters are annoying.
The conflict and paranormal aspects in this book I think were better done and more subtly crafted than in book one, so I liked that! However, it took a while to build to any real conflict, so that's why I took off.
I love the characters, but this book didn't really keep me on my toes at all. View 1 comment. Oct 25, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it really liked it Shelves: This was so good. I die. I pos-i-tute-ly loved this. I need to get my hands on the next book NOW. I just feel like for this being such a long book, not very much really happened and that we didn't get very much in terms of new character development.
I did very much enjoy this and I feel like Libba Bray really set it up to bring the heat in the next book. I cannot WAIT to find out what's going to go down. After years of waiting, the second Diviners book is finally here. Lair of Dreams is every bit as intricate and lovely as The Diviners. Like The Diviners, Lair of Dreams is slow. There were a few threads in The Diviners that hinted at future possible story lines, but there are so many questions in this one, so much more to come.
Poor kids. Lair of Dreams is a rough book for Evie. Prior to now, she was sort of a shiny, daring heroine, the leading star of the series. All of them care more than they wish they did about Evie, and, when she downloadd a one way ticket on the hot mess express, they boarded too.
I was thrown at first by the addition of Ling Chan as a central character. She and Henry make a delightfully and odd and perfect friendship. There are some terrible things coming her way in the future. Also, Memphis needs to get Bill away from his little brother because some bad shit is happening there.
Totally called the ending of the whole sleeping sickness thing though. Totally called it at basically the first possible point. These books are genius. SO excited for the next one in like or so! View all 30 comments. Her voice was nearly a whisper. So she lived in the moment, as if her life were one long party that never had to stop as long as she kept the good times going. Evie has become a radio sensation The Sweetheart Seer after her abilities become public.
Sam is continuing to chase down the project buffalo lead, a lead which is progressively heading into darker and more dangerous paths.
Meanwhile, a sleeping sickness is spreading throughout the city and Henry, along with a girl called Ling who can walk in dreams, may be the cure to curing it. Lair of Dreams is on a much smaller scale than The Diviners, and that scaling down it what worked against it, in my opinion. I also think too much of this book felt like the first pages, by that I mean it felt like we were just getting into things instead of INTO things for way too long.
But the character work was beyond good. Ling is probably the standout character of this book, because she's the one introduced and developed most.
She's the daughter of Chinese immigrants, with a disability, who can walk in people's dreams and see the dead in her dreams and oh my god.. I love her? She's adorable, hilarious and her friendship with Henry was too pure for words.
Henry had a lot of his backstory explained and uhh I love my sweet boy he deserves the world. There's diviners, government conspiracies, the occult and supernatural, shadowmen, missing persons and ghosts. And so much more. And Libba Bray weaves it all together so well, and in such a clever way, and it keeps me constantly engaged.
I genuinely have no idea where this is going next and I love it. The setting is also done so well. Libba Bray explores ALL of the roaring 20's, putting away her rose-tainted glass to address the awful bits too.
The resurgence of Eugenics and the Ku Klux Klan plays a large role in this, as does socialism and the union fights, government corruption, poverty and the increasing gap between the rich and the poor. This book is so interesting and honestly educating in how it tells the story of the time period too and I love that. The audiobook narrator January Lavoy does such an amazing job at really emphasising the horror aspects and honestly it makes it so much more enjoyable! For not all ghosts remember, and the citizens have need of warning.

I had this Dream Log ,14 Dec, I wake up disturbed before dawn ,nightmare again That hell of a novel "The Diviners" made me suffer many lately.
I can't sleep anymore,I went up to the roof.. But Who cares, I'm too sleepy to think.. I see a drunk man resting his head on the sidewalk.. A song comes out of a radio somewhere with a man singing: Just rolling along Just rolling along.. It's just like living some wonderful ending of a novel or somethin': I'm quitting the blues of the world..
Just singing a song.. Just singing a song" The Song still on..
A creepy very tall figure coming from far point of the vast open park.. He's gray too.. He's walking backward I can't see his face,and he's really tall, Oh and getting taller Damn that's soooo creepy Hardly getting on my feet as it's - I can't call that thing He - getting closer..
I want to turn back and run,but my feet won't move ,can't even turn back.. Smile, boys, that's the style What's the use of worrying?.. I was paralyzed I can't move..
Don't want to see what's that freak going to do to the man.. It never was worth while, so.. Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,.. The blood seeped into the fertile ground drop by drop.
And smile, smile, smile. What have you done? I paralyzed even more.. But something clear in the sky that coming out of the grayness "..
I'm falling Waiting for the next book and more to come.. View 2 comments. WrensReads Review: I recommend people to read this book after you've read a few other things between Diviners. It has a different feel than its predecessor, but it is still just as wonderful and deliciously creepy as The Diviners was. I'm not going to give much away, but you are dealing with another type of spirit in a way in this book. I'm going to go by character again since there is so many!
Listen to this! January LaVoy is literally my favorite narrator in the world's entirety. Please, oh WrensReads Review: Please, oh please, get on the LaVoy bus with me! Evie O'Neill Evie, our flapper girl who now has her own radio show about telling people the messages left in the objects they bring her.
She always has to put a positive twist on it with a dash of scandal to keep the listeners listening and her ratings high. She is positutely delicious.
When her boss catches wind of a rumor she is engaged to Sam Llyod though, she makes a deal with said "fiance" to keep the media, and more importantly her ratings and her boss, happy. And lets not forget about her unclear feelings for Jericho Jones. She kissed him even though her absolute best friend Mabel has had a crush on him since she met him.
Who knew that a girl could be in more than one type of triangular love? And what happens when an object she reads for a guest doesn't tell her anything about their secrets, but her own? He drives a lot of this book. He's been trying to find his boyfriend from his hometown through dream-walking.
That's right kids, this guy can walk through the dream world. Sure, it might make him paralyzed for a few minutes after he wakes up, but it will all be worth it in the end. Because who better to find the cure to the sleeping-curse going around town than someone who can walk through dreams? How about two people who can walk through dreams? Ling Chan This is our representation of disability and race.
I loved her so much. Her special gift? She can find the dead in dreams. So people ask her to find their dead loved ones a lot and ask them questions. So when she meets Henry and he asks her to find him in dream-world and then to help him find his friend, she reluctantly helps, even though Chinatown is slowly shutting down because of the sleeping curse.
People just can't wake up and end up with all these scars and then one day.. Maybe their new friend, someone coming to America to be married off for her family's benefit, will be able to help them? Three is the magic number after all. The Museum is on its way out, being behind on payments and what-not, but Sam is eagerly trying to keep it afloat because he wants, no he needs to figure out what happened to his mother and what is Project Buffalo?
And who does Evie think she is? Besides loud, beautiful, spunky, the cat's meow, the reason that his heart stops beating Theta Knight You know the saying "There is no secret that time will not reveal"? Because Theta is learning that real quickly. Her past, that she has been running from, is about to run her right over.
Theta is unraveling quick, but can she outrun her own past to save her future? Jericho Jones Jericho is having a hard time with Evie not being around and basically avoiding him.
Not to mention that Will is gone, the museum is going under, and his only friend seems to be the guy he loathes: Sam Lloyd. Sure, Mabel is around and he kind of gets the feeling that she has feelings for him, but she isn't Evie.
And the one thing that is keeping him alive is hanging on a string. What's more important, his freedom or his life? Will Fitzgerald Will finally is coming to terms that what he thought wasn't going down is going down and now he has to go do something and he is super absent in this book. Mabel Rose Mable knows she isn't someone special.
She knows her best friend Evie is the life of the party, she's the pretty one and Mabel kind of just goes along with whatever she does. Well, she's finally going to go and try to become apart of Jericho's life so he can see she is more than what meets the eye. But little does she know that because of her relations with Jericho, Evie who is engaged to same now? Memphis Campbell Memphis has a lot going on. He has an over-religious aunt who doesn't want Memphis and his brother Isaiah using their gifts, his brother keeps having fits, he is dating a white girl, and he has lots his power to heal.
Or has he? His brother was miraculously healed.. What keeps happening to him anyway? And why has Blind Bill all of a sudden become like a wannabe father to him and Isaiah? This story is miraculous and I am so excited about the third book!
I am literally obsessed with Bray and all the stories she has ever written; but this one takes the cake!
Libba always knows the way to my cold stone heart. Review to come! Review posted at www. In , a crew of men is opening up an old walled-off tunnel underneath the streets of New York City in order to build a new subway tunnel. Look at this Wikipedia photo of an old NYC subway - someone got lazy and copied it for the cover of this book!
The workers find a desiccated body in a walled-off area. Soon the men begin to die of a mysterious sleeping sickness, where the afflicted cannot be awakened and die after a few days. Then the lethal sickness begins to spread through the city. The sickness is blamed on Chinese immigrants, but really it attacks people regardless of age or race.
It must be a job for the Avengers Diviners! Lair of Dreams picks up not long after the events of the first volume, The Diviners. It weaves together several other threads, including the story of Ling, a Chinese girl handicapped by the aftereffects of polio, who is a dream walker; Henry, another dream walker who is searching in both the dream world and the real world for the boy he fell in love with in New Orleans; and Memphis, a young black man struggling to deal with both his healing abilities and his forbidden love for a white woman.
I thought these interrelated stories worked well together, and all of them were interesting to me, particularly with Ling and Henry meeting in the dream world, working together but each pursuing his or her individual interests and goals.
The ghostly plot, though it involves many deaths, was intriguing, especially the dream world and its interrelationship with and effect on the real world — and it wasn't nearly as off-putting to me as the devilish serial killer spirit in The Diviners , although some readers may miss the higher level of creepy horror.
When the dream creatures enter the real world and start attacking people in the streets, the story strayed from its initial sense of dreamy horror. There are also several plot lines that are left unresolved, for the next volume in the series. Just as the book is wrapping up and most of the threads were being tied together, several pieces of the plot begin to unravel again with an extended epilogue that leaves the reader with some rather irritating cliffhangers.
Libba Bray also really has a way with creating a scene. At one point the Chinese population, who are being unfairly blamed for the sleeping sickness, are all being detained by the police: Not when people could hate the very idea of you. Not when there were ghosts in your dreams. Ling shut her eyes and listened to the sounds of her neighbors being taken away in the night. If you liked the first book in this series, I think you'll really enjoy Lair of Dreams.
Personally I'm not a fan of the horror genre so I think I'm finished with this series at this point, but I'd certainly recommend it to those who like fantasy horror on the YA level.
Content advisory: Supernatural horror violence, disturbing, but the gore factor is pretty limited. Straight and gay relationships include kisses and non-explicit love scenes. Advance copy received from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you! Oct 25, Hailey Hailey in Bookland rated it liked it Shelves: I loved The Diviners, it was one of my favourite books of but this just did not do it for me and I have to say I'm very disappointed.
Nothing happened until the last pages which for a page book is just not okay. I'll do a video review and go more into my thoughts later but for now, I'm just kind of let down. They fall into their beds, the dirt of the city still caked under their ragged nails.
The men dream of the music box and its song, a relic from a time long ago. In this latest instalment, the reader returns to s New York. Each character has its own storyline: Each night, it claims a new victim.
Someone will go to bed one night and not wake up. The life expectancy is three days, before horrible sores and burns start to develop on the unconscious body, just before they die.
