Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera's rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.
the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and
Akiva are finally reunited - not in love, but in a tentative alliance
against their common enemy. 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.
But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters?
The New York Times
bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning
conclusion as - from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and
beyond - humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic
theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and
I'm so happy with this ending
and Akiva must find a way to bring the beasts and angels together to
fight against the evil angels. It's hard work but they manage to get it
done with a few rough starts and stops. They have some help with a
secret Karou is carrying.
What a brilliant author Laini Taylor is to come up with the worlds that she does.
is also another character that has a very interesting (to put it
mildly) part in the book. Her name is Eliza. I enjoyed her character
quite a bit.
Karou's best friends, Zuzana and Mik are in the
middle of it all. Just two small humans in an unhuman world. I love them
so much and they were great through the whole thing. They also brought
many comedic moments.
Liraz is there and hating stuff as much as
always but she is there for her brother Akiva. BUT, she does show a
sweet side when no one is looking and she gets a crush that will turn to
love. I was so happy and it was lovely how sweet they were together.
NO, I'm not saying who it is.
Ziri is there, another one of
Karou's best friends but he was a monster like her. I don't like calling
them monsters because they were the good monsters but that's how we
keep them separate. Ziri rising above and beyond the call of duty to
help both the seraphim and chimaera! I loved him so much. He put himself
in a very precarious situation and he rocked it. And, oh the outcome,
he was perfect and he finally got what he wanted in life. Not what he
thought in the beginning, but even more. ♥
I loved the books in
this trilogy. I loved all of the creatures and I WISH there was a
graphic novel or some kind of artwork book of all the creatures. They
were just so awesome sounding. Actually, I would like to see this
trilogy as a movie too, as long as they didn't mess it up. It's a very
serious book and not something you could cartoon up.
Anyway, I'm happy and that is all that matters =)
