Laini Taylor delivers the second part of the beautifully written duology begun with Strange the Dreamer. Taylor’s inventive powers are second to none, her pleasure in storytelling's wonder infectious.
The dream chooses the dreamer.
Since he was five years old, Lazlo Strange has been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to go 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 to cut it off from the world? What 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 many more mysteries - including the blue-skinned goddess who visits Lazlo's dreams ...
