Publisher's Summary

It began with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It continued with Days of Blood and Starlight. It ends with Dreams of Gods and Monsters.
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.
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 theatre 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?

I still really hope there is more

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

A perfect ending (or beginning) to a beautiful story.

Loved the narrator.

Only bad thing is that I wished there were three more books ;)

Well done, Laini!

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!

Satisfying conclusion

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.

Good, but not as epic as the first two books

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.
