Publisher Description

“Dripping with bloody opulence, A Multitude of Dreams creeps up on you like a sly shadow. I couldn’t guess at the horrors until it was too late to look away! I loved this book.” —Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrow

The bloody plague is finally past, but what fresh horror lies in its wake?

Princess Imogen of Goslind has lived a sheltered life for three years at the boarded-up castle—she and the rest of its inhabitants safe from the bloody mori roja plague that’s ravaged the kingdom. But Princess Imogen has a secret, and as King Stuart descends further into madness, it’s at great risk of being revealed. Rations dwindle each day, and unhappy murmurings threaten to crack the facade of the years-long charade being played within the castle walls.

Nico Mott once enjoyed a comfortable life of status, but the plague took everyone and everything from him. If not for the generosity of a nearby lord, Nico may not have survived the mori roja’s aftermath. But does owing Lord Crane his life mean he owes him his silence?

When Lord Crane sends Nico to search for more plague survivors in the castle, Nico collides with a princess who wants to break out. They will each have to navigate the web of lies they’ve woven if they’re going to survive the nightmares ahead.

“This books takes place after a plague the Mori Roja (The Bloody Three) has ran through the country, only a few people survive. Seraphina the princess and everyone in the castle has been locked away for 4 years. Nico is one of the few immune people who lives out in the country in a manor. His lord sent him on a quest to see if anyone has survived in the castle, little does Nico know his lord is a monster and has other plans with the survivors inside the castle. Nico tries to save the remaining people in the castle and warn them about the monster that hunt in the woods. This books is full of twists and turns and a plot I didn’t see coming till half way through the book. It’s a beautiful YA about how a plague can run rampant and the after shock of it. Just like how we were all afraid to leave our homes during covid. It’s about how they will live in this new world and what they need to expect from it. I’m happy that covid didn’t turn anyone into the monsters that are in this book”
“This was a fun, eerie, gothic tale about Seraphina, a “princess” during a deadly plague that had stricken the land. This was a YA retelling of The Masque of the Red Death, following the main character Seraphina, which gives a refreshing perspective of this tale. During this time, the Jewish people of this country were being blamed for the spreading of the plague. Jewish people were not among the accepted group of this land and time, so the fact that Seraphina was secretly a young Jewish girl and not Princess of the King was unheard of. Seraphina’s secret identity was known only by a few in the castle as they had taken her from her community to live as Princess Imogen. They were forbidden to leave the castle for fear of the plague spreading inside those very walls. However, the plague was only among one fear that the kingdom should have, as something darker was stirring within this ravaged land.”
