And the New York City police can’t solve them alone. I can’t wait to read Lair of Dreams now. There’s the Ingenue who thinks she’s experienced. I would feel really bad about about not finishing this if I weren’t so overwhelmingly bored by it. Man, we were such dorks. When the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer. God, I can’t wait. I love the Gemma Doyle series.
I think what gets me feeling itchy is all that emphasis on the facts of a life, while all the juicy, relevant, human oddity stuff gets left on the cutting room floor. We d A bit on the slow side, but for the most part I really enjoyed this! This article is about the young adult novel. She is the other dream walker and can talk to the dead in dreams. Language that is mostly defined by 20s vernacular and only devoted to creating the setting. I didn’t really get that when I went into it, and even though the lead girl was 17, I honestly feel like the book would have been a bit more effective had she just aged it up and made it more complex and grittier.
I’m really excited to read the sequels but it’s gonna have to wait until after Restore Me lol Overall, I’m glad I finally finished this book; I am not disappointed at all.

I thought it was kinda slow and boring. And oh lord, it was. She feels alone, misunderstood, haunted.
Even though this audiobook was 16 hours long, it flew by. The mystery bry murders do divijers on a bit, and I wanted soooo much more of ‘The-Diviners-Divining’, if you get what I mean. Every character was vivid and different, and I also really liked the sub-plots within their lives. It’s not exactly like I’m going to say “I was born in Alabama…” and somebody’s going to jump up and snarl, “Oh yeah?
And it was getting darker, much complected. Can the Diviners descend into btay dreamworld and catch a killer?
Some of my most pressing ones being: I loved the relationship between her and her Uncle Will, two very different people who are forced to team up and work together to solve the murders; what starts out as rather reluctant teamwork becomes a strong bond and I can’t wait to ilbba more from them. It just hit me that this book comes out in just about two months.
Other books in the series. I really enjoyed all the history and the different time period that came divinefs the story and honestly, I was caught up with literally all the characters. I also loved how scary and gory this book was. Then there were so many POVs. They each had a role to play, which was important considering there were so many of them.
It didn’t go in the direction that I would expect most YA books to go, and instead went in a direction I found more likable and realistic. She ran toward life full tilt while Jericho held back, not daring.
The characters are around in this book, and they way they spoke back then actually made them sound ‘older’ and more ‘mature’ than most book characters of the 21st century. My mom still has a copy.
The story in itself is intriguing on its own, and the historical element also adds a lot to the atmosphere of it. Bray breaks narrative character in a couple sections to lecture the reader on s racism. I felt it in Memphis’ pray for his brother by the end.

I look to her when someone talks about representation. And we circle between the lives of a few quaint people: Any book that makes my skin crawl is a book I am going to hold onto for the rest of my life. The main character Evie was a really intelligent and funny girl.
The Diviners 3 17 Sep 07, It was spooky, with interesting characters fiviners in an awesome setting and i loved it. I no longer really give a care about religion sorry Godbut if you do, this issue might still be significant for you. I’ve been a die-hard Libba Bray fan ever since the fabulous Gemma Doyle books.
