WAITING ON WEDNESDAY is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week, I can’t wait for the last book in an epic series.
Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Author: Laini Taylor
Series: Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy
Publisher: Little Brown & Company
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Common enemy, common cause.
When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.
And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.
But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz…something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.
What power can bruise the sky?
From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.
At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?
The cover! The cover, the cover, the cover!
Like oh my goodness, it’s gorgeous. So dark and final and just epic. Look at the cover model’s stare!
And I just love the title. Dreams of Gods & Monsters? What could be a better title than that that can fit this series perfectly?
I just hope that Laini Taylor won’t break my heart with the ending to the series.
What book are you looking forward to reading this week?
