#57 - Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) - Laini Taylor

An epic conclusion to an epic series! I decided to give it a try after hearing so many great things about it and I am really glad I did.

 

This series is unlike any others series I’ve read before. It has great complex characters, a really unique world created y the author and the writing is so amazing. I can only recommend this series, it is really worth it.

 

I waited quite a long time to read the last book because I did not want this series to end. My favourite book is still the second one, but this one was a wonderful conclusion to this series.

 

I won’t go into too many details because I do not want to spoil the book for those who have not read the series yet, but the ending was really great. Unexpected, well, it was kind of easy to predict the course of events but after all the action ended, the book was not over. There were still some chapters about what happened after, which is really not that common in books. I am really happy about that ending!

 

Again, I definitely recommend this series!

Strange the Dreamer: DNF at 5 percent
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

Sorry, not sorry, I just am not going to force myself to read something I am not enjoying.


The purple prose and info dump that I tried to wade through turned me completely off. I can't say much more than that since I didn't waste my time trying to struggle through this read. 

 

I would also say that the flow was just a slog. I did try to skim a couple of chapters and just gave up.

Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

I smell a DNF coming.

 

"He roared the city’s name. Like thunder, like an avalanche, like the war cry of the seraphim who had come on wings of fire and cleansed the world of demons."

Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Dreams of Gods & Monsters - Laini Taylor

Dreams of Gods & Monsters is the last of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy and I am so sad to see it end. This has been a wild ride with a beautiful cast of characters and a thought-provoking story that held me from beginning to end. Despite the length of these books, they were all fairly quick reads because I just couldn't put them down.

 

This book was full of adventure and intrigue, suspense and twists, and I loved it! The mythology of this series takes humans, demons, and angels and changes your perception of them. What does it mean to be good or evil? How does one person or thing become evil? Are those thought to be evil truly bad, or is it just one's perspective? These are all questions that this book, and the series, makes you ask yourself.

 

I felt like this book was the most emotional of the series. It tore my heart to shreds more than once, and built it right back up. The imagery and the characters are so vivid that it was impossible not to put myself in the middle of the story with them, feeling their pain, their angst, their joy, their sadness. So delicious!

Days of Blood & Starlight
Days of Blood & Starlight - Laini Taylor

I truly love this series!  The characters are fantastic and the story is thoroughly engrossing.  The world of this series is a wonderful blend of the real and the imagined and they fit together seamlessly.

 

The cast of characters expands in this series and they are all beautifully developed.  But Akiva and Karou were completely at odds with one another in this book and that was hard as a shipper of that relationship.  But that only made the story that much more of an engrossing read.

 

I love that this series takes the commonly held ideas of religious mythology and what it means to be good or evil and then turns them around.  Karou and her people are chimera, what most would consider to be demons.  Akiva is an angel, but many of his kind are far from the peace-loving angels that most of us imagine.  The story is told primarily from the point of view of Karou, making you really look at how perspective changes perception.

 

At it's heart, the story is about two enemies coming together for a common goal, a common mission, a common future.  It is imaginative, exciting, and beautifully written!
