Description of this Book
The highly anticipated sequel to Dreamhunter (also available in audio by Bolinda). Inventive and richly imagined, Elizabeth Knox's dramatic conclusion will satisfy readers - whether or not they've read Book One. The explosive and captivating sequel to Dreamhunter. The horror of the Rainbow Opera riot is the talk of the country. Dreamhunter Grace Tiebold's reputation is in tatters and Laura is in hiding. But the nightmare has only just begun. Rumours about the government's torture of prisoners have been suppressed and corrupt minister Cas Doran is free to take his plans to shocking heights. For at a secret depot deep within the Place, a new, terrifying dream has been unearthed - waiting to wreak havoc on the country and give Cas Doran ultimate power. Laura and Rose know they must stop him, but in doing so they start a chain of events that could shake dreamhunting to its knees and blow open the deepest mysteries of the Place. Praise for Dreamhunter: a lyrical, intricate and ferociously intelligent fantasy - Kirkus Reviews. Knox's fascinating story imagines the intersection of a haunting dreamworld with a gritty real world...This fully imagined world will surely lure readers back for multiple readings. - Publishers Weekly. A tantalising feat of imaginative fiction...perhaps the most dazzingly inventive of her books to date. - Magpies magazine

||A fantasist to rival Philip Pullman or Garth Nix. -- Booklist Knox's haunting, invigorating storytelling will leave readers eager to return to its puzzles - and to reap its rewards. -- Booklist Richly layered and thoroughly enthralling. -- School Library Journal It is like nothing else I've ever read. The characters are so real, you'll feel like you know exactly what they look like and how their voices sound and what they would say or do in any given situation. More than that, you'll want to hang out with them. Then the world is so amazing and unique. You will want to go there. You will want to walk into `the Place.' And you will want to sleep in a dream opera. -- Stephenie Meyer
