Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This epic fantasy checks off all of the boxes. This beautifully written (and narrated-audio version), well-crafted tale immerses the reader into a mysterious world filled with magic, alchemy, heroes, monsters, and mystery.
Laslo Strange is an orphan who's found himself cast into the role of junior librarian - or more accurately, servant to the "scholars". He is obsessed with his own research into the lost city of Weep, so much so that he's actually penned his own books that chronicle all he's learned of this mysterious land that's been erased from the minds of humankind. Yet when an unlikely opportunity arises, Laslo finds himself a member of a band of great minds and warriors led by the Godslayer, and his dreams of the mythical city of Weep may just become a reality.
Can't wait for the sequel - "Muse of Nightmares" - to be released!!!
