Goodreads 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 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.
My Thoughts: I was already a fan of Laini Taylor’s writing style after reading her “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” trilogy so I was excited to get more from her. This novel was just as whimsical as her others but I loved how she gave us a new world that still seemed realistic.
I loved Strange as a character and the fact that he was a book nerd was definitely a plus. I really don’t want to go too far in detail of things I loved because I don’t want to ruin it for any of you. I do believe that the best way to go into it is just by the synopsis. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars and would recommend this to anyone!!! Have any of you read this and if so what did you think? Happy Reading Y’all
