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.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 3270 comments I need to get my book so hopefully my library has it. I will be able to start it later today. It's 10:00 AM here and I have a 1:00 lunch with some friends so it might be around 3:00 before I can start.

How do you like it so far?

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 3270 comments Sorry for lagging. I had to get all my challenges updated and babysat my granddaughter, so I had little time for reading.

Are you very familiar with myths? I had never heard about where Seraphim came from so I was wondering if the myth in this book is common or different. (view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 3270 comments I have so many books I want to read and need to read! OMG! Do you read Brittainy C. Cherry? Her new book comes out tomorrow but she released it early today on KU! I had already started her only book (I think) that I haven't read yet so I HAVE to read those before getting to others! I just love her so much!

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 3270 comments Response to your post on Myth: I think that's a really good guess, and it would be really cool to ask the author that one. IF and WHEN I have time, I might research that one.

I'll post today in the evening, just so busy lately!

I love that even though Lazlo is an orphan and doesn't have a home to call home, the place he's really comfortable and feels at home in is the Great Library. Books lovers will understand!

I love that there is such a good caliber of characters in this book. Their personalities and reasons for being are varied and as far as fantasy goes very realistic.

I also loved that (view spoiler)


Damselflies | 456 comments I'm also a little busy, it being the start of spring and working in the garden regularly haha
