Strange the Dreamer

Strange the Dreamer: Book #1

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



Description

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 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.

Quotes


It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming.
Like nightmares, dreams were insidious things, and didn't like being locked away.
Good people do all the things bad people do, Lazlo. It's just that when they do them, they call it justice.
The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around.
