Strange the Dreamer Synopsis
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 iself, 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 solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries - including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How sis he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
Welcome to Weep.
This series was one of the best I've read in a long time! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!
I fell in love with Laini Taylor after reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I actually re-read the series this year, which is something that I hardly ever do. I can count on one hand the number of series that I have read more than once. I know this series will soon be added to that list, though. I already want to re-read it, and I just finished it a couple of hours ago!
I listened to most of the series as audiobooks, and these were by far the best audiobooks I've ever listened to! The narrator, Steve West, did an AMAZING job of bringing the characters to life.
Also, I must point out - I love the way he pronounces "belly!" I know that sounds weird, but I guarantee you will agree if you listen!
The only complaint I have about these books is that there is not another one in the series! As far as I know, Laini Taylor intended this to be a duology. However, she did end Muse of Nightmares in a way that would allow her to add more to the story. Can we all please beg her to write a third book?
If you haven't read this series, you should totally do go read it right now!
I will leave you with some awesome artwork of characters from the book that I found online.
