Lazlo Strange is a very smart orphan who works as a librarian. He dreams of traveling to the mysteriously forgotten city of Weep. Throughout his life he has read every document concerning this city and he’s one of the few who still remembers that the city existed.
Lazlo thinks that fulfilling his dream is impossible, but life thinks otherwise and has a lot of surprises and mysteries for him to solve.
I like Laini Taylor’s books because they all have monstrous, magic and original creatures.
I think that this novel combines innocent themes, as wanting to be loved, with difficult themes, as hate, guilt and loneliness. I liked the way it talked about the character’s psychology.
Minya was obnoxious. She let the bad things turn her into a controlling and evil being. I think that hate and vengeance thirst make the people do stupid stuff and become close minded persons.
I liked that Sarai had the capacity to see that humans where not pure evil, that they had reasons to do what they did and that there were kindness and love in humanity. I’ve always thought that being radical is bad and that there’s good and bad things in everything.
Lazlo was always special and I think he’ll do great stuff in the next books.
This novel ends in a very exciting way in the city of Weep. It let me in suspense. Definitely, I’ll read the next books and I recommend this one a lot.
