Strange the Dreamer - Taylor, Laini       MUSE OF NIGHTMARES

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Twenty-year-old orphaned librarian Lazlo Strange remembers boyhood stories of a lost city. Two hundred years ago six gods built an angel shaped fortress over the legendary city blocking out the sky and cutting it off from the outside world. Even the city’s true name has been replaced with the name of Weep. As Lazlo, who is called Strange the Dreamer, is researching the lost city of Weep, the unexpected arrival of Eril-Fane, nicknamed the Godslayer, launches him into an expedition to reach the city of Weep and destroy the fortress. However as Lazlo reaches the city, strange dreams of blue demigods alert him to the fact that the ancient fortress might not be empty after all. Five surviving godspawn, the gifted offspring of captured humans and cruel gods, are about to use their gifts of walking in dreams, controlling ghosts, and summoning fire to wage a new war with the town. The sequel is The Muse of Nightmares.
