New Laini Taylor book coming!

This is officially my new most anticipated book of 2016:

Strange the Dreamer

(I'm assuming a cover is forthcoming. Though this kind of works for me!)

Here's how Laini describes the main character:
His name is Lazlo Strange, and he’s a junior librarian at the world’s greatest library. One of the first things that made me fall in love with him was when it came out that his nose had been broken by a falling volume of fairy tales. It was this tiny thing that came from of my fingertips one day (sometimes the words seem just to appear in the space between your fingertips and the keyboard), and suddenly…I had him: “Strange the Dreamer,” so-called by his colleagues, and not always kindly.
Apparently the book is about

  • 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 imperiled.
  • alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.
Love and carnage. Sounds like Laini Taylor. I can't wait!


  1. Oh that sounds wonderful! I will read just about anything that's about an aftermath. Goody, goody, goody! Adding this to my anticipated books list of 2016!

  2. New book?! I haven't even finished the sequels of Daughter of Smoke & Bone yet, but still, this is great news!
