By Laini Taylor in her book, Strange the Dreamer
I was so excited when I found I had won a hard copy of Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
I love the gorgeous cover. How about you?
I was awed and amazed with the excellent world building and the romance that crosses all barriers. The characters are richly developed and complex, each one vital to the story in their own way. I loved everything about this unputdownable fantasy, so I will warn you to start Strange The Dreamer on the weekend, lock all the doors, pull the curtains, and put up the DO NOT DISTURB sign. My only complaint…There is another book and you will need to read it to get all the answers.

I was super excited that I won a copy of Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
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?

Welcome to Weep.
Sorry, not sorry, I just am not going to force myself to read something I am not enjoying.
The purple prose and info dump that I tried to wade through turned me completely off. I can't say much more than that since I didn't waste my time trying to struggle through this read.
I would also say that the flow was just a slog. I did try to skim a couple of chapters and just gave up.
