'Laini Taylor set my imagination on fire so hard that it spontaneously combusted . . . This is the kind of story that paves dreams' Roshani Chokshi, author of The Star Touched Queen



'5*s: This whimsical and diverse tale reads like a dream' Heat

*********



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 and 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.

Strange the Dreamer transports you into a world filled with Gods and monsters. Lazlo Strange, an orphan boy, struggled against the rigid rules and requirements of being raised by monks. Lazlo’s only retreat is his dream to one day discover the long lost magical city of Weep. As Lazlo grows older his obsession with Weep only becomes stronger. Until one fateful day when citizens of Weep suddenly arrive into town. This book instantly became one of my favourites. It just has everything a great fantasy novel should have. The world building is fantastic and the imagery created by the lyrical writing style of Taylor easily immerses you into the world of Lazlo Strange. Like all great fantasy books, Strange the Dreamer allows you to observe relevant issues and ideas for today through the lens of the fantastical. Taylor thoughtfully explores the ideas of forgiveness, racism and how trauma carries through generations. Books like this are a rare find and I am eagerly awaiting the next one Muse of Nightmares which is due to come out in October 2018. - Orah (QBD)
