Do you love fantasies about gods and magic? Do you love intricate world building? Do you love Laini Taylor? Then do I have a treat for you! Courtesy of Little, Brown & Co., I have one prize pack—which includes a finished hardcover of Strange the Dreamer—to give away to a U.S. resident. Keep reading to the end to learn more about the giveaway. But first, here’s more about the book, and I’ve got a fun quiz you can take to find out which Godspawn you are! And ICYMI, you can read my review of Strange the Dreamer here.
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 or 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?
Welcome to Weep.
