Technically, I’m not in a slump but if I was, this would pull me right out! If you loved, Strange the Dreamer, you will also love this!
One of my favorite things about this book was the look into the past! I loved getting a glimpse of how certain people started out. Their stories are important for the current plot. Wow, she really has so much material here… she could make so many books in this world. I would read them all.
Somehow, I was able to fall even more in love with the characters. Lazlo Strange will always be one of my favorite characters ever! He’s just so good and so perfect. He would do anything for anyone and it’s so important. The relationship he forms and the people he meet throughout his journey, know this and it helps them come to their sense so much easier later. How could Lazlo ever be anything but a great person?!
Sarai really grew in this book. I loved her transformation from the beginning to end. She thinks that she’s not strong and can’t do anything but turns out that’s not true. She’s so much stronger for what she has been through. I really hope that she gets her wish!
Minya broke my heart. Okay, more it was her story that just broke me. We get to see her side of what happens and how it controls her now. It’s heartbreaking. She’s living on rage because she wants revenge. She was faced with death, tried to save all those babies and mostly failed. She saved 4 and her whole life has been to protect them. This poor girl is in need of a big hug and a year of relaxation.
I tried really hard to think of anything that I didn’t like about this book and there was nothing. I loved it all. It was an amazing ride and I’m so sad that it’s over. There was so much emotion in this book, more than I expected. I loved learning so much more about the past and the godspawn in this book. Taylor has an amazing gift to tell stories and I can’t wait to read more from her. I’m a fan!
I was half way through this library copy and decided to just buy my own when I was at the bookstore. I knew that I was going to love it and needed to have it. 🙂
