Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters
By Laini Taylor
Genre YA Fantasy
Karou and Akiva work side by side to save earth and change Eretz for the better.
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.
