Pages: 560

After battling a sleeping sickness, The Diviners are up against a group of new and malevolent foes--ghosts! Out in Ward's Island sits a mental hospital full of lost souls from 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 New York City, the Diviners must band together and brave the ghosts haunting the asylum to bring down the King of Crows.

Um, hello, new Libba Bray?! I’ll always be first in line for every new book she releases. Plus, The Diviners is probably my favorite ongoing series at the moment. (Although, the cover changes are DECIDEDLY NOT MY FAVORITE. I miss the original cover design of the first book.) There was a ton of foreshadowing in Lair of Dreams about this mysterious “King of Crows” that this installment deals with, so I can’t wait to learn more about what all of that is about! I just can’t wait to be plunged back into 1920’s New York City with the best cast of characters.

What book are you waiting on this week? Have you read The Diviners series?

    • Ahhhh! She’s my favorite. It seems like her books aren’t for everyone, but I looooove her writing. And the historical settings in this series and the Gemma Doyle trilogy are so on point!
