Publisher's Summary

It began with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It continued with Days of Blood and Starlight. It ends with Dreams of Gods and Monsters.

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.

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 theatre 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?

    "good read"

    this book wasn't as good as the last two seemed to drag on a bit. the reader was great until she tried to do chech accent and then the voices ended up ruining those characters for me...

    It was a fantastic trilogy, I can't wait for the movie adaption, but I still hope there is more of the story to come.

    "A perfect ending"

    A perfect ending (or beginning) to a beautiful story.

    Loved the narrator.

    Only bad thing is that I wished there were three more books ;)

    "What a conclusion to an amazing series!"
    If you could sum up Dreams of Gods and Monsters in three words, what would they be?

    Magical, captivating and surprising


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreams of Gods and Monsters?

    The ending is beautiful and particular plot twist is so unexpected and such a happy idea, it sticks with you!


    What about Kristin Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Each moment and character is so well formed, one wants to remain tucked up in her world, it's very hard to leave!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Of course, the tension of the last two books and the action packed nature of this one keeps one on the edge of one's seat


    Any additional comments?

    Here is hoping this isn't the last we see of this world, the end came far too soon!

    Story
    "Satisfying conclusion"

    It's actually quite a relief to find a trilogy that manages to stick to only 3 books and actually wrap up the story whilst leaving plenty of room for more visits to that world(s).

    I'll try not to be spoilery but I was satisfied with the outcome. To be honest, I found the Akiva/Karou love story the least interesting bit. My favourite characters are definitely Mik and Zuze as they respond in the way I consider entirely appropriate to the discovery of other worlds and magic - largely by being sarcastic and never just accepting each new revelation as normal. There are some enjoyable discussions about the logic and limits of wishing that were great. I, for one, am happy that long descriptive battle scenes are avoided as they never work for me.

    Kristin Hvam is excellent. I liked her Tiago and Razgut voices particuarly - I guess baddies are more fun. Some of the writing is quite lyrical and poetic which she manages very well. She can't really do a Belgian accent but that's expecting a bit too much specialisation from any reader.

    "Well done, Laini!"

    Dreams of Gods and Monsters is a very fitting conclusion to the trilogy. I was afraid that the ending might disappoint me a bit, but it really didn't. I am very happy with the final chapter of this adventure.

    The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because it didn't need to be that long. I wouldn't say it's dragged because she writes so beautifully, but compared to the previous books I needed some extra time finishing it. And just to comment the performance: Hvam's narration is outstanding as always.

    This is absolutely a great book (especially as audiobook), and I'm sure all who liked the first two books will love the ending as much as I do!

    ENJOY!

    "Utterly Gripping"

    I found the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, a couple of months ago but only started to listen a couple of weeks ago. Once I had, I couldn't stop. Bought the other two books and listened at every opportunity. Fabulous story of love and war and many other things I can't consciously put my finger on. Lots of depth and wonderful characters and Hope.

    "Another fantastic story, well read"

    I loved the conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, the story tied up beautifully, leaving me feeling satisfied, but also wanting more. I love that all three books are read by the same vocalist, it really made the story even more cohesive. if you like epic fantasy YA then you'll love these books.

    I really enjoyed this whole trilogy, but this book was the most gripping & had added depth to the story! It was so good that I didn't want it to end. It has been a long time since I enjoyed a story so much. I highly recommend!
