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?

Dreams of Gods and Monsters was the final book in the trilogy Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. 

I was so apprehensive to read this book. I bought it way back when the book was released. I started the book then and put it down because hell I didn't want to finish up with this world! So then I said I need to read this now and I read this so slowly... But I finally did finish this book and it was just amazing!

I can't believe I'm finished this series! Ahhh I won't have any more adventures with Karou and Akiva and Zusanne and Mik and everyone and I just need more. Crossing fingers and hoping Laini Taylor might come back to this world and write a spin off or something.

But anyhoo. This book was a perfect conclusion. It was long, action packed, questions were answered and it just concluded the trilogy so well. 

Everyone knows I adore Karou. She is high on my favourite female characters list and I just loved the way that her story concluded in this. It was just fitting. The ending was fitting for the trilogy and by damn, I love this trilogy!

And I cannot wait for Laini Taylor's new book, Strange The Dreamer, which is due to come out in March 2017. I can not wait! Because it just sounds so amazing! Like her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy.
