Title: Dreams of Gods & Monsters
   Author: Laini Taylor
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: March 20th, 2014

     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 Stance:

     Well this spoils a lot of what I am looking for in the series. Okay maybe not so much, but I know that there characters live through the second book, which is spoiler-ish. I just started the first book and Karou is one of those female characters that sears into my brain. It's not that she's this hard, self-sufficient character like some of the others that top my lists. However Karou is different and makes me want to see more of her character and try to understand her completely. I have the second book on my shelf, and while I may not read it by the time this book comes out, I still am eager to add it to my shelf.

     The characters int he series make the book great, but the covers help lure me in. Akiva I am not so sold on though, but that'll come with the review. Either way the war with Chimaera and the Seraph is still ongoing and while I expected it to, I just wonder what the point of the second book is now. I guess that's why I should read it before reading these synopsis. I didn't used to, but things happened when I was looking for books to feature this week and this one cropped up. I enjoyed the cover so much I couldn't help myself.
