Literature / Dreamblood Duology
In the desert city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Along its ancient stone streets, there is no crime or violence. Priests of the dream-goddess, known as Gatherers, maintain order: harvesting the dreams of the citizens, healing the injured, and guiding the dreamers into the afterlife...

The Dreamblood Duology is a series of two Fantasy novels by N. K. Jemisin (known for her Inheritance Trilogy), set in a kingdom inspired by Ancient Egypt where dream magic and its priests are central. The first novel is The Killing Moon about Ehiru, a Gatherer, who discovers corruption at the very heart of power. The second novel is The Shadowed Sun, about Hanani, the first female Sharer, and her discovery of what lays outside of the cloistered halls of the Hetawa.

"The Narcomancer", available online, is a short story set in the same world, centuries before the time of the books.
