Mark Housley

A story about an orphaned librarian and the great adventure of his life. Set in a fresh fantasy world, with interesting magic systems, powerful beings brought low, and light romance. This book is well written, with good pacing, characterization, and plot. It will grab you pretty hard and force you to finish, but it's one of those where you don't want it to end. Following the trope of the orphan's ordeal, the book makes it interesting and worth finishing. This doesn't feature teenagers especially but it might be considered YA for the simplicity of the story structure and plot. I would heartily recommend Strange the Dreamer to anyone. I really loved it and can't wait for the sequel.

Edit: after ruminating on this book, I am changing my review to five stars. I have found myself thinking about it rather often. Also, I've been recommending it far and wide.


This is the best book I've read in a while. Great story, BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE, a must read
