Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Title Dreams of Gods & Monsters (DOSAB #3)
By Laini Taylor
Genre YA Fantasy
Rating ⭐⭐⭐

Karou and Akiva work side by side to save earth and change Eretz for the better.

First Sentence 
Nerve thrum and screaming blood, wild and churning and chasing and devouring and terrible and terrible and terrible-

I did it!!!! I read all three books is just two months. I'm glad to have finally finished this series. I had very high expectations and while the story fulfilled those expectations the characters did not. As I've mentioned before, I do not like Akiva. He wasn't even tolerable in this one. Sorry.

The story in this one was a little slower than I wanted. Then last half was much better than the first half.  While I ended up adoring Eliza  I thought it was weird that we only meet her in this one. Suddenly out of nowhere she steps into the story. It was just weird.

I liked this one best of all three. It was more exciting and there was a lot going on. I liked seeing how everything turned out. I especially liked that the ending wasn't wrapped up all nicely in a neat bow. There was a lot of work still to be done and it felt much more realistic.

Great ending to an fun story....Just ignore Akiva if you can.

Should you read it?
I know several of you haven't finished this series yet. I say do it.


  1. I'm glad you finished the series and despite the characters you liked it. :)

  2. I am reading this right now. :)

  3. Ooh, so this was your favourite of the three? Interesting. I am leaning towards finishing this series now. Congrats for reading all the books! I know how much you disliked Akiva so I think it's impressive you managed to get through them all. You have inspired me to give it a go!

  4. I'm so glad you loved the series! I loved this book as well. I think my favorites are both this book and the first one. Middle books just aren't my thing :) Lovely review, Jenny!

  5. Glad this series ended well! :)

  6. I have no intentions of ignoring Akiva (somebody has to console the poor book boyfriend after your rejection of him!), but I feel you on Eliza. I loved her character too, and it would have been great to have her throughout the series. Also, have you read the novella Night of Cake & Puppets? It's an adorable extra about Zuzana and Mik's first date. I HIGHLY recommend it if you love Zuzana. :)

  7. Way to go! How great that the best one was last.
