A brilliant follow up in the series , although being set 10 years later and with different main characters its almost a standalone.I love the dream based magic system abd NK Jemisin expands on it here looking at another branch , the sharers in more detail
This book is dark and twisted in many ways and borders on disturbing in parts as the author shows the potential power of nightmares in a society where dreams are so powerful.
NK Jemisin has a special skill of going against expectations in a book . As the second in a series certain preconceived ideas from book one are flipped on their heads. A lot of book 1 is reversed, one of the heros here would be pretty much the villain in book one.
The story also develops into a near perfect love stort, with a very satisfying and beautifully written conclusion.
NK Jemisin really is a breath of fresh air in fantasy.
