Kurzbeschreibung

8. April 2014
In this thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she's ever known.

When a brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat--and against larger dangers that loom on the horizon. They begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves--maybe even toward love.

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.

Praise for the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy: - I like to spread the word when I come across a book that excites me. I read Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor last weekend (sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone) and I'm all fired up about it. Thank you, Ms. Taylor, for a thrilling couple of days. I am in your debt. (Warning readers: this is one of those series that will have you tearing at your hair and gnashing your teeth waiting for the next installment. Be prepared.) Stephenie Meyer This is Romeo and Juliet on a sprawling fantasy stage. Guardian Heartbreak, war and magic spells abound in this captivating romance ... There's slaying aplenty, but Taylor mitigates the violence with an unquenchable belief in the restorative powers of love and hope - and magic Marie Claire Fantasy and romance combine... If you've ever wondered what would happen if an angel and a devil fell in love, you're about to find out. Sunday Express Transports the reader to the very centre of the action; you soon forget it's a fight between ethereal being and beast; you forget that this is fantasy We Love This Book -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Mit haushohen Erwartungen, Vorfreude, Angst und einer großen Prise Traurigkeit habe ich dem letzten Teil von Laini Taylors unglaublicher Trilogie entgegengefiebert. Dreams beginnt genau da, wo das düstere, hoffnungslose Days of Blood and Starlight endete, und ich habe mich davor gefürchtet, dass Laini ihre Buchreihe auch mit dieser trostlosen Stimmung zum Abschluss bringt. Es hätte mir das Herz gebrochen.
Gott sei Dank hat Laini aber Mitleid mit ihren Fans. Natürlich nehmen Krieg, Tod, Hass, Betrug und Enttäuschung immer noch einen sehr großen Teil ein, aber Dreams ist wieder etwas leichter als sein Vorgänger, und genau wie sich Karou und Akiva endlich wieder erlauben zu hoffen, so tut das auch der Leser. Zaghaft, leise, als würde er dem Frieden (und der Autorin) nicht über dem Weg trauen, als könne er nicht glauben, dass seine Lieblingshelden tatsächlich die kleinste Chance auf ein Happy End haben könnten. Je nachdem, wie man es sieht und für welches Paar das Herz schlägt, wird man vom überraschenden Ende enttäuscht sein - oder nicht.

Ich war von der ersten Sekunde an in Karou und Akiva verliebt und bin selbst nicht ganz schlüssig, was ich von dem Ende halten soll. War ich frustriert? Ja. Nach allem, was sie durchgemacht haben, hättien sie ihr Happy End doch wirklich verdient, oder?
Andererseits hätte es im Eretz der Laini Taylor ein Happily Ever After sehr schwer gehabt. Denn es ist kein Märchen, das Laini hier geschrieben hat, keine Gute-Nacht-Geschichte für Kinder, sondern eine epische Saga voller Liebe, Hass, Traurigkeit, Hoffnung, Verrat und Vergebung. Und insofern ist das Ende für Karou und Akiva das angemessenste, dass es geben konnte.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein spannender Abschluss der Trilogie 17. Mai 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe alle drei Bücher dieser Serie verschlungen und zähle sie nun zu meinen liebsten Büchern. Wer Fantasy-Geschichten mag, sollte sie unbedingt lesen! Ich habe selten Geschichten erlebt, in denen die Charaktere so überzeugend ausgearbeitet waren, mit eigenen Wünschen, Träumen und Hoffnungen in einer Welt, die scheinbar ewig von Krieg heimgesucht wird.
Die Handlung selbst ist abwechslungsreich und spannend, mit unerwarteten Wendungen wie auch schon in den vorherigen Bänden.
Besonders gut gefällt mir der Schreibstil von Laini Taylor, die dem ganzen Geschehen eine düstere und magische Atmosphäre verleiht und gleichzeitig Raum für Humor lässt.

Zur Handlung:
Am Anfang dieses dritten Bandes scheint die Situation geradezu hoffnungslos für Karou und Akiva. Ihr Ziel, dem Krieg ein Ende zu bereiten und ihre Völker in Frieden zu vereinen, ist in weite Ferne gerückt. Engel in der Welt der Menschen, die sich als heilige Himmelsboten und Krieger im Kampf gegen die Monster präsentieren, wollen sich die Waffen dieser Welt zu eigen machen, um die Rebellion in ihrem Land sofort niederzuschlagen. Und das nur, um sich dann dem nächsten erklärten Feind, den mysteriösen Stelianern auf der anderen Seite der Welt zu widmen.
Währenddessen versuchen Chimaeren und die Misbegotten (auf deutsch "Unseligen") vereint gegen diese Bedrohung anzukämpfen.
Ob es ihnen gelingt.... Das erfährt man dann im Buch! =)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Super, aber paar Lücken in der Story 27. April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe die ersten beiden Teile verschlungen und auch den dritten habe ich bis etwa 70% des Buches sehr gierig gelesen. Ab dann wurde die Story sehr flach, die Liebesgeschichten der Nebencharaktere (Ziri, Liraz) sind nicht nachvollziehbar und unglaubwürdig. Das Ende verspricht einen vierten Band indirekt, da es kein happy end sondern "happy middle" ist und macht die Story nur unrunder. Alles in allem ist es empfehlenswert zu lesen aber das Ende etwas enttäuschend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Everything that a conclusion should be. 8. April 2014
Von Jenna Detrapani - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I never throw around this word, but I will use it with capital letters right now:

EPIC.

DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS by Laini Taylor, the conclusion to her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, is truly epic… Not to mention, it’s poetic, incredible, stunning and one heck of a (perfectly solid) finale.

Honestly, I will tell you right now: I am a hugely insane, forget everything you thought you knew about me because I am out of control, fan of Laini’s writing. There was very little chance that this book wasn’t going to “wow” me. I mean, yeah, there’s always a chance, but… no. Disappointment didn’t happen at all here. Not even one ioda of disappointment. I was in love with all 624 pages – and most likely 150k+ words – of this book. Will it be for everybody? I don’t know – and really, I don’t care. I loved this book… The series… Everything. As a (basically rabid and salivating at the mouth) fan of the series, I can tell you that the conclusion will not disappoint.

From chapter one, there were fireworks between me and DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS. Starting with the first chapter, I was reminded as to why I love Laini’s writing so much. Even the simplest of passages, such as…

“Revenant soldiers and Misbegotten, together. At best, it would be miserable. At worst, devastating. But in spite of his misgivings, it was as if there was a brightness beckoning to him – the future, rich with light, calling him toward it…”

And…

“…For just a moment, in spite of the burden of the weapons bag, and the thuribles, and her pack – not to mention the anvil weight of her duty and the deception and the future of two worlds – Karou felt almost light. Hopeful.”

If you recall, Days of Blood and Starlight was rife with sorrow and death and deception and pain (literally, lots and lots of pain). DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS is still full of pain and deception and plenty of things bad, but where there is sadness here, there is also hope lining every page. The entire book contains a perfect see-saw of emotions that will keep readers turning the pages, forgetting just how many of them have been turned and how many have yet to be touched.

In the end you may not physically be in the happiest place on earth (or, who knows, maybe you will be), but you will certainly feel as though you’ve been there thanks to DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS.

DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS begins mere hours after the conclusion of Days of Blood and Starlight (3 hours, to be exact). We are introduced to a new character right off the bat – someone who will play a larger part than you can presently imagine. Some people may boo and hiss at this detail, but alas, the character is almost as likable as Zuzana and Mik or, at the very least, as much as Liraz. Eliza… What an intriguing character to follow. (And that is all I will say about that.)

Just as intriguing as the new character are the interactions between our two most familiar characters, Karou and Akiva. Their story begins at the kazbah in Morocco. Over and over again, their paths cross – with the shadow of previous deceptions still weighing on their shoulders. More than once I found myself yelling at the two of them out loud to just TALK to each other and work things out... But that’s really only because I am such a mushy-gushy Madrigal/Karou-Akiva fangirl. Yes, I admit it. I am a shipper. I was devastated at the end of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and seeing them as enemies in Days of Blood and Starlight was pure torture. Will they ever get together again? I will not say. Either way, their story is so, so very satisfying and ends in the most appropriate of ways, regardless of whether or not they get their “happily ever after”.

But back to the story: In DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS, the combined troupes of chimaera and Misbegotten must work together to save their world and ours… Honestly, I have often wondered how humanity would react if beings like “angels” or “demons” ever did descend to our level. Laini answers these questions in the most logical of ways, with people reacting to their presence in the name of both religion and science. She handles what could easily become a touchy subject both tastefully and with grace. No obvious opinion on the subject of religion can be seen within these pages. Although religious themes are present, the reader can still enjoy the story for what it is: pure fantasy, through and through.

In DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS, Zuzana and Mik are featured more prominently than ever before. Thanks to their novella, Night of Cake and Puppets, we know enough about their relationship to have strong feelings for both of them. Thanks to them we witness some very, very creative usage of wishes – one or two of which have a major impact on the overall story. On that note I say: Keep on keeping on, Zuzana and Mik! You two have proven that I want you in my corner if anything bad were to happen to me!

Did I mention that this book is beyond gorgeous? Not just Laini’s words – which anyone who has already begun the series can see are quite impressive – but also the scale of her world(s) and her story. The book is divided into parts; half taking place in Eretz, as the chimaera and Misbegotten attempt to work out their “truce”, and the other half on Earth. First we get to experience the building tension involved in an unsteady alliance and the planning of war and and then we get even more tension as an “espionage-esque” mission is carried out. Somewhere in-between there’s also some glorious flying, including a scene that contained some of my favorite words in fiction, ever.

Alas, just when you think the story is over – and there couldn’t possibly be anything more to befall the surviving characters – the ultimate bombshell of the entire series is dropped.

My reaction?

O.O!!!!

You’ll have to read it to believe it.

Pros:
- Everything.
- Gorgeous writing.
- Unforgettable characters
- Worlds beyond imagining.
- Romantic fantasy at its best.
- It is everything that a conclusion should be.
- …Chimaera.
- …Neek-neek!!!

Cons:
- Nothing?
- No seriously. Nothing.
- …I mean, maybe the page count might scare people off?
- But seriously, don’t let that scare you…
- Or the epic bombshell at the end.
- (It’s perfect.)

I hereby declare DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS THE BOOK of 2014. In addition, I implore EVERYONE… be you a reader of young adult fiction (or not), a fan of fantasy novels (or not), a man or a woman, beast or god-like in appearance… to read this epic series.

Let the fireworks commence.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully written, though not as strong as the previous two... 18. April 2014
Von Supernatural Snark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Dreams of Gods and Monsters is one of those books that inspires conflicting reactions upon finishing it, the overwhelming love of the previous two books predisposing us to adore this final book as well, but even with our desire to love at its highest, we find ourselves perhaps less enthused upon finishing than we might have hoped. Reading this final book is a bit like watching a chess match without a full understanding of the rules, well aware each move on the board is leading up to either victory or defeat, but our ignorance keeps us from emotionally engaging in the epic battle of strategy.

Much the same way, Ms. Taylor spends nearly the entirety of this impressively substantial final installment moving pieces around her board, but where the first two books felt like an intimate game between she and us as readers, Gods and Monsters sees our single chessboard expanded to include so many more, and the sheer enormity of the expansion leaves us feeling slightly adrift. New players are introduced, and with them comes enormous implications for Karou, Akiva and the rest of their ragtag group. Suddenly, the final battle we were prepared to face in this last book is rendered nearly insignificant as the shadow of the new threat creeps into clarity. We’re left then with an end that is in fact a beginning–unarguably fitting given Karou and Akiva have called themselves a beginning all along, but also a bit frustrating after everything the characters have been through in this series.

All of that being said however, Dreams of Gods and Monsters is as gorgeous a story as its predecessors, Ms. Taylor’s writing achingly beautiful and her characters the stuff of cherished memories. The core characters of Karou, Akiva, Zuze, Mik, Ziri and Liraz carry this tale even when the tying together of disparate plot threads slows the pace to a near crawl, the six of them acting as emotional anchors who keep us tethered to this world and its questionable fate. Overall, beloved fans of the series will undoubtedly be pleased with some of the truly stunning moments Ms. Taylor paints on page, and I certainly can’t wait to see what her astoundingly imaginative mind has in store for us next.

Rating: 3.5/5

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Near Perfect Conclusion To One Of the Best Trilogies I've Read (some spoilers at the end..with warning) 10. April 2014
Von Ryan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
“Twice-daughter, my joy. Your dream is my dream, and your name is true. You are all of our hope.”

I've been looking forward to this book for what seems like a very long time. And I'm very pleased to say it did not disappoint. It wasn't perfect (I'll get into that later), but it was damn close.

The book picks up right as the Angels (led by Jael) arrive on Earth, and we're immediately introduced to a new human character named Eliza who appears to have quite the mysterious past. It seems odd to introduce someone new, and apparently major, this far into the trilogy but it does eventually pay off (somewhat....again, we'll get to that later).
As for Karou, Akiva, and all our old favorites, we actually back track a bit from where the last book left off (with the Angels and Chimaera already in the Kirin Caves), and we get to see how they eventually ended up there.

For the most part, fans of the book will get closure on their favorite characters from the previous books (well, the ones that survive). I was elated (with tears in my eyes) with where some of them end up. One of Laini Taylor's strengths is in creating characters that you fall in love with. Even ones that start off as unlikeable (Liraz) could end up being your outright favorite by the end. There were a few notable exceptions when it comes to closure though. For example, my favorite character from Book 2, Sveva doesn't appear in the book at all (I guess my hope for her and Rath ending up together will need to stay as fan-fiction).

The major storyline that was set up in book 1 and 2 (Angel/Chimaera War) is seen through to a worthy conclusion. It came a bit earlier than I expected, with nearly 20% left in the book for the resolution, but still it was quite satisfying. It was equal parts, exciting, infuriating (on purpose) and at times heartbreaking.

It's that last 20% (well, technically the last 8%) of the book where I am I not sure what to think. Spoilers to follow:

SPOILER BELOW:

Eliza (now with the memories of her kin) informs them that the myth of the Godstars is one yet to happen....and that *gasp* THEY are the Godstars. Destined to fight off the darkness in an epic war.
The trilogy is over, but now we have this new piece of knowledge. We aren't told when this war will take place, or who will survive the battle (many are slain, one hundred survive). Though if you take the myth literally, those that survive ARE the Godstars, so maybe we do know a few of the 100 who survive (Akiva, Karou, Mik, Zuzanna, Liraz, Ziri, Rath, etc). I don't know, like I said, I don't know how I feel about this. It almost feels as if the author is setting up another book. That the Daughter of Smoke and Bone was just the warm up for the real story. Or maybe we're just meant to believe that these characters were fated to come together, and eventually save the world and succeed? The story is about how they came together...so maybe we already know the important part....
I'm just rambling...I'll stop now.

END SPOILER

So yeah...take away that one part, and I absolutely LOVED the book. Without a doubt, it stands aside The Hunger Games, His Dark Materials, and Harry Potter as one of my favorite series of all time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I'm at a slightly shaky four stars 13. April 2014
Von KVB99 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dreams of Gods and Monsters (DGM) begins with Karou and the remnant of the chimaera forging an uneasy alliance with Akiva’s Misbegotten and agreeing to take on Jael. Not surprisingly, the alliance is rocky at first as the centuries old enemies struggle to put aside their mutual hatred of each other, but gradually they’re able to do so. This book introduces a new character—Eliza—who proves central to understanding the bigger picture and what’s at stake. Of course, Karou and Akiva find a way to put aside the pain between them and join together in the fight against Jael. At the end of the book, the loose ends are tied together and the stage is even set for a possible spin off series, although the Karou-Akiva story is resolved and doesn’t need anything more.

The Book: DGM is a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. So, if you’ve made it through Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight, you definitely have to read the conclusion (like I’m telling you something you don’t already know). It’s very much worth it.

Pros: Zuzana, Liraz, and Ziri become great characters in this book. Also, the same imagination and lyrical prose that characterized the first two books is here in spades in the final book. Laini Taylor is a great writer and she’s in fine form in this book. Yeah, we kind of know how it’s going to end, but the author pulls it off in a way that is enjoyable and unpredictable. I give a special A+ to the author for what is a very imaginative, novel story. Also, after the painful, distressing tone of Days of Blood & Starlight, it’s nice to see the story veer back into the magic territory of Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

Cons: The plot was not as strong as the first two books, IMO. We came into this book focused on two things: Karou and Akiva getting back together and somehow defeating Jael. Curiously, both of these plot arcs are resolved rather early and the resolutions are surprisingly anti-climactic. The anticipated big confrontation with Jael ends not with a bang but with a whimper. Also, the Karou-Akiva reconciliation that I thought would be epic and emotional kind of happens with just a shrug. After books 1 and 2, I thought there’d be more drama and emotion and more story time, but the reconciliation is pretty low key and…dare I say, romantically disappointing. The endgame of the story focuses on a new plot arc about monsters in the dark, which hasn’t really been introduced very much hitherto so it feels like someone out of the blue is crashing the party. Still, we’ve got great characters and the story ends the way we want it to end, so while this isn’t the best book in the series, you gotta read it and I give it a solid thumbs up.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dreams of Gods and Monsters 2. Juli 2014
Von Angie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, this was unexpected. It seriously never crossed my mind that I wouldn't enjoy Dreams of Gods and Monsters after absolutely loving the previous two books. Maybe my expectations were too high, or perhaps the book and I really just didn't mesh well. Either way, I'm saddened. I was beyond excited, but also nervous to find out how Karou and Akiva's story ends. This series has been heartbreaking and beautiful, but also full of hope and a little humor, but most of that was missing for me from this finale.

My biggest issue with Dreams of Gods and Monsters was that it felt long. It is long at just over 600 pages, but it felt never ending. There's a lot of detail, and many characters to follow, but it's also repetitive. Many scenes are repeated in adjacent chapters and this annoyed me to no end. It's not like I forgot what happened two pages ago and needed a reminder from another character's perspective. Then there's also repeats from earlier scenes that I don't think were needed. All of these things are short on their own, but they do add up and really messed with the pacing.

Another element that I didn't care for--and which added to the substantial length--was the introduction of Eliza. I simply wasn't interested in her from the beginning. She felt like an addition just so we had a way to see what was happening in the human world while the Seraphim/Chimaera war was starting. She does wind up being important at the end, but all of her chapters bored me. Most of them are the same: her worrying about her dreams and anyone finding out who she really is. Then I was bothered by the fact that she had run away from home as a teenager, and wants nothing to do with her family at all, and yet her mother calls and texts her constantly. This made no sense, and seemed to only serve as a way for someone to expose her identity. To what purpose? I have no clue. I think she hurt Dreams of Gods and Monsters more than she helped.

After the whole Eliza fiasco, I had to wonder what did happen in the human world after the war ended. I know it's not that important in the grand scheme of things, but humans were brought into it, so I want to know. There's no way to write away humans not noticing a swarm of angels, but what about when they found the Chimaera bodies? What about when the angels were gone? What happened to humanity?! Did they study the bodies? Write it all off as a hoax? What happened?! We see what happens in Eretz in the epilogue, but Earth is completely forgotten!

There were parts of Dreams of Gods and Monsters that I loved, but those scenes were few and far between. They also didn't grab at me the way the other two books did, which was disappointing. I loved the tension between Karou and Akiva! I wanted to smash their faces together almost as much as Zuzanna did! I also found myself oddly drawn to Razgut and actually wanted a novella or even a full story about him and his past. Zuzanna and Mik provided some lightness that I appreciated, but overall I found them a bit out of place.

So, in the end, Dreams of Gods and Monsters did not make me happy or satisfy my craving for more from this fantastic world. Everything felt drawn out and over complicated. And I'm not even going to pretend like I understood those last chapters all. It felt like a new book, with new world building, and a new plot was starting, then abruptly ending. It was a struggle for me to get through, since I felt like I was reading forever and making no progress. Dreams of Gods and Monsters will, of course, work for many fans of the series. I just couldn't get into it.
