It was a fantastic trilogy, I can't wait for the movie adaption, but I still hope there is more of the story to come.
A perfect ending (or beginning) to a beautiful story.
Loved the narrator.
Only bad thing is that I wished there were three more books ;)
Dreams of Gods and Monsters is a very fitting conclusion to the trilogy. I was afraid that the ending might disappoint me a bit, but it really didn't. I am very happy with the final chapter of this adventure.
The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because it didn't need to be that long. I wouldn't say it's dragged because she writes so beautifully, but compared to the previous books I needed some extra time finishing it. And just to comment the performance: Hvam's narration is outstanding as always.
This is absolutely a great book (especially as audiobook), and I'm sure all who liked the first two books will love the ending as much as I do!

It's actually quite a relief to find a trilogy that manages to stick to only 3 books and actually wrap up the story whilst leaving plenty of room for more visits to that world(s).
I'll try not to be spoilery but I was satisfied with the outcome. To be honest, I found the Akiva/Karou love story the least interesting bit. My favourite characters are definitely Mik and Zuze as they respond in the way I consider entirely appropriate to the discovery of other worlds and magic - largely by being sarcastic and never just accepting each new revelation as normal. There are some enjoyable discussions about the logic and limits of wishing that were great. I, for one, am happy that long descriptive battle scenes are avoided as they never work for me.
Kristin Hvam is excellent. I liked her Tiago and Razgut voices particuarly - I guess baddies are more fun. Some of the writing is quite lyrical and poetic which she manages very well. She can't really do a Belgian accent but that's expecting a bit too much specialisation from any reader.

Beautifully written and original storyline. I loved the characters, the humour, the world setting and the constant angst in the first two books. I did enjoy and appreciate Dreams of Gods and Monsters, but it was not as epic and gut-wrenching as the first two books. I really wanted to love this book but it just didn't amaze me and felt it could have had more potential. I did however like the ending to this series, it's just a shame I wasn't as invested in this book as the others.
Lovely as a clear night, the Milky Way and stars.
Beautifully written, great narration and a struggle to stop listening.
