The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way aroundand 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 to 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?
In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.
Welcome to Weep.


Why I'm excited for this book:

First of all, this is a new book by Laini Taylore which automatically makes me happy. Next, this sounds like such an epic fantasy world and I can't wait to inhabit it. Laini Taylor is amazing at worldbuilding and creating such intricate worlds that I know I'm immediately going to fall in love with it. The main character is a librarian, how can you go wrong there? And including a war with the Gods, Goddesses , and a Godslayer? I'm completely caught by  this tale hook, line and sinker. And just the icing on the cake, that magnificent cover. I'm ready to fall into the world of Weep.
