Okay I need to write this review now while it is in the forefront of my mind.
If you like “fairy-tale” stories like the Grimm Fairy-Tales or you like the way Neil Gaiman writes, then this book is going to be at the top of your favorites shelf.
Lazlo studies Weep.
Weep is basically “The Lost City of Atlantis” in this story. Everyone has heard stories about this magical place and the people there, but no one believes it is real because it is just a myth. Lazlo is thought a fool for having such an interest in a topic that doesn’t really help the community. In fact, they start to call him “Strange the Dreamer” (huh, isn’t that the title of this book) because of this.
Well, one day, someone from Weep pulls up and recruits people to help save their city. Lalzo does everything he can to be apart of that team.
That’s all I can really tell you about the actual plot without giving away any information. This story is like Greek Mythology mixed with The Lost City of Atlantis with a sprinkle of X-Men and a war against the dead and a little bit of forbidden love.
The kind of forbidden love that makes you wiggle and say “awe” and “my lawd”. It was love at first site and I absolutely loved everything about it (which is new, since I am not a hopeless romantic).
And let me say you kind of call one thing that you find out at the end, but then there’s this one other thing that happens at the end that absolutely breaks your heart and shocks you and you don’t know if you can recover. Like seriously I don’t know how this series can end on even an okay note.
This is one of those books that you are just going to have to take my word for it and read.
