Lair of Dreams picks up a short time after The Diviners end. Evie is know known as the Sweetheart Seer and has her own radio show. Sam and Jericho are doing everything they can to keep the museum open while dealing with their own Diviner issues. Henry finds out there is at least one other Dream walker out there. Theta worries her nightmares from the past may burn her future.
Lair of Dreams was somehow even better then The Diviners. One or two new characters are introduced and fit right in with the already existing ones. I really didn't care for Evie's character for most of this book. Towards the end, you see a glimpse of the old Evie and you get why she acts the way she does for most of the beginning. I still didn't care much for her thoughtlessness, but at least there is a explanation. I'm glad she wasn't the main focus in this title. There wasn't really a main character in Lair of Dreams and I absolutely loved that. Each character has a equal amount of time. This allows each character the time they really needed to grow. The writing and the story are absolutely superb. I liked the ghost story a lot more then Naughty John. I really, really hope it doesn't take another three years for the next Diviners title.
