A new epic fantasy by National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.
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 to 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?
In this sweeping and breathtaking new 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.
Welcome to Weep.

I am not completely dazzled
Fri, 21 Apr 2017 | Review by: Sue @ Crushingcinders
Strange the Dreamer isÖ well strange and I canít decide if itís a good strange or a bad strange. Itís not what I expectedÖ and I am not completely dazzled.
I started the book the day it released and my pre-order arrived in my Kindle. I devoured the prequel Ė a delicate tasty morsel that I would be craving for the rest of the book. I read through the first chapter thinking, itís going to be good, itís going to be great. Halfway through the second chapter, my thoughts turned to whatÖ?
It does get better Ė slowly, achingly slowly, until almost at the end when it broke through ok to good. Then the endingÖ Iím not even going to go there!
Lazlo is a difficult character, one whose weaknesses are his strength, and I didnít like him at first. He grew on me slowly, although he will never be as real to me as the Sarai is. She and her makeshift family are the characters that give the story life and I wish they had more space in the book.
