“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Expected Date: March 28, 2017
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?
Finally another Laini Taylor book to sink my teeth into! I adored the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and Taylor has some of the most inventive, imaginative writing out there. I’m dying to immerse myself in this new world.
So are you excited for Strange the Dreamer? Have you read Taylor’s previous books? Let me know in the comments below!
