Waiting on Wednesday #21

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor.

Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)Summary (via Goodreads):
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?

Why Am I Waiting?
Have you read Laini Taylor’s work? Her stories are intricate with exceptional world building and character development. I’ve read everything I’ve found of hers and she is on my ‘must read’ list no matter what she writes.

    So I’m one of those oddballs that didn’t completely love Daughter of Smoke & Bone. I may have to give it a re-read and see if that changes but for now… I can at least appreciate the beautiful covers. 😀
