Mini-Book Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor


 Goodreads Blurb:

By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

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?

My Review

As always, the descriptions are flawless, the world-building is amazing, the characters are full of life and I couldn’t stop reading! For the last book of the series, I was almost apprehensive that I wouldn’t enjoy it as much…But despite the absence of characters which were regretfully killed off, I still enjoyed the book just as much as its predecessors.

Akiva, Karou and poor Ziri (who doesn’t seem to stand a chance) are still stuck in their brutally realistic love triangle…and Mik and Zuzana are still the adorable (perfect) couple. Unlike relationships in books which come off fake and too perfect, the ones in this series always seem to have just enough of everything (whether its joy or frustration, jealousy or..well you name it!).

Would I Recommend It? Yes!

Rating: 5 stars
