Synopsis (Goodreads)
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?

Okay, it is official. I am in love with everything that Taylor writes. Even though it took me a little while to get into the flow of Dreams of Gods and Monsters {I think it is because I wasn’t expecting a new character at the very beginning}, once I did get started into it, I was in love with it.

I will admit that I was really nervous when moving onto Dreams of Gods and Monsters, with it being the last book in this astounding trilogy, but it most definitely did not disappoint. I know that I kept on screaming {internally} at Karou and Akiva, they just really needed to hurry up and realise that they still had feelings for each other.

Zuze and Mik still remain my all-time favourite characters, although, Liraz worked her way up there to join them at the top.

Overall, I was sad to see this trilogy end, but I was also glad at how Taylor brought it all together.
