Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor is a beautifully written young adult fantasy novel about love, family, outcasts and finding out who you are meant to be.
It reads like honey and consumes you from the very first sentence. Each character is well rounded and the visuals depicted weave their way so intoxicatingly through your mind that it will be all you think about for weeks.
The story follows a young man named Lazlo Strange, an orphan and junior librarian on his search for meaning and understanding.
In Lazlo’s world, “the dream chooses the dreamer,” and through his own dreams, he hopes to find the answers to the lost city of Weep and the gods that once ruled it.
His one chance comes along in the form of a champion fighter named the Godslayer.
Will he find what he has been searching for or will his travels only bring more questions, including the mysterious girl with the blue skin who continues to haunt his dreams?
