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 person 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? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
Welcome to Weep.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor is gorgeous and magical. Lazlo is such an amazing main character. Weep is such a beautiful world to discover and I loved getting to see it through Lazlo’s eyes. He has a passion for this world and its secrets.

Taylor is an amazing writer, she brings these amazing multiverse worlds to her readers. it is really hard not to be drawn into these beautiful worlds. I really enjoy getting lost in all the magic and imagery. Taylor’s words are so poetic, you can’t help but get lost in them.

Lazlo is a dreamer and he wants nothing more than to remember the name of the unseen city. Lazlo is determined to find out what happened to this beautiful city. I can’t express how much I love this book and how beautiful it is. I can’t wait for book two.
