I’ve had the pleasure of being contacted by Hodder & Stoughton about Laini Taylor’s new book, Strange the Dreamer. For people not so familiar with Taylor’s work, she wrote the bestselling series Daughter of Smoke and Bone! So with great excitement, the cover and prologue are being revealed today!
Personally, I’m really looking forward to it. It has a librarian as a main character, and the mystery and intrigue surrounding it is keeping me on my toes. In case you haven’t seen the short description we’ve gotten, here it is:
the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperilled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.
