From National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor comes an epic fantasy about a mythic lost city and its dark past.

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 form 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? And who is the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams?

In this sweeping and breathtaking novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & 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.

The answers await in Weep.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express


Firru . a dat nota:

One of the main aspects of the book that I absolutely appreciated was how it looked at the concept of dreams. There’s always this debate as to whether it is healthier to be realistic or be a dreamer when it comes to ones goals as dreamers themselves are looked as… ‘lazy’. But this book was based on a dreamer and his dream. How he wished, hoped and how much of that dream encompassed his life and regardless of whether people were dismissing it, he stayed true to his belief and did not doubt it. Yes, the occasional doubt was there, naturally it would be, but his belief in that dream kept him afloat. And that just hit so close to home for me.
