A blue skinned girl falls from the sky. A city lost 200 years past suddenly allows strangers inside its gates. An orphan who found a home in a library is swept away on the adventure of a lifetime. Laslo Strange is one of Laini Taylor's best characters. He is a dreamer, a librarian, and probably his world's greatest scholar of Weep, a city whose name has been wiped from history and minds alike. When soldiers from Weep ride into his town looking for a party to accompany them back to Weep to solve a problem, Laslo begs to go. And once in Weep, he discovers that gods are not always benevolent, that fear and desperation can make good men do awful things. And he learns that he may just be the key to saving Weep's future. The first in a new series, Laini Taylor once is again one of the most unique voices writing today.
War orphan and junior librarian Lazlo Strange gets an unexpected opportunity to follow his dream of seeking the mythic lost city of Weep with the Godslayer and his band of legendary warriors.
