Publisher Description

From National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor comes an epic fantasy about a mythic lost city and its dark past.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around--and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was just five years old, he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the form of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? And who is the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams?

In this sweeping and breathtaking novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.

The answers await in Weep.

Astounding and Riveting.

Takes you to a new place, and creates a world where anything is possible; with the same note that love will conquer anything. True love will find you in this world or the next. Reminds you that hate only begets hate, and the antidote is only love. 10 out of 10 would recommend over and over. A beautiful book to follow the amazing trilogy of ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone.’ Laini did it again!

Orphan Story

Lots of books are stories about orphans living through a difficult childhood then discovering who they really are. Strange the Dreamer puts a new twist on this familiar plot line and takes the reader on an unusual journey. I highly recommended this first book in the series. I’m looking forward to what the characters face in the next book.

This book was really slow for the first one hundred pages or so, but after that, it picked up. One of the main characters had one of the coolest powers I had ever read about, and the ending was satisfying. Overall, a good, creative read
