Teaser Tuesday: 6th June 2017

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.

This week my teaser comes from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I read this last week and really, really enjoyed it but honestly, that ending!!! How am I supposed to wait for the second book in the duology?

My Teaser

You’re a storyteller. Dream up something wild and improbable,” she pleaded. “Something beautiful and full of monsters.”

“Beautiful and full of monsters?”

“All the best stories are.”

~ pg115 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

BlurbStrange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

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.

    • I was knocked back on NetGalley too but it was in a FairyLoot box so I ended up with a copy anyway 😀 I really liked it. Possibly a little on the long side and a bit too much imagery for my tastes but the story was great and I loved main character Lazlo. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the second book.

  1. Love that teaser! You made me wonder if I should wait until book two to pick it up though… Not sure if I can deal with yet another long wait for a sequel to be published. 😉
