Complex and shatteringly beautiful, Strange the Dreamer is yet another fine piece of work by the incomparable Laini Taylor. It’s no secret that I will read anything and everything she writes, so I had been counting down the days until I had this book in my hands.
Taylor’s signature writing is as strong as ever, complete with luscious descriptions that bring every detail to life and a cast of intriguing characters who add significant color to the story. It did take me a little while to become fully invested in the plot and some of the characters, but once I did, I wanted nothing more than to keep the book from ending. I wanted to live amongst these words, to bask in them, and to let them be my world. There is romance and there is heartache; there is creation and destruction. Revenge and forgiveness and sorrow and beauty—all wrapped up in a single heartbreaking and breathtaking story.
Strange the Dreamer is pure magic that should be savored from start to finish.
