Add to Goodreads
By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

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?

I've been anxiously awaiting this final installment from the moment I finished Days of Blood & Starlight. This is one of my favorite series, beautifully written and full of compelling characters.  Of course, I'm still hoping for a happy ending for Karou and Akiva, but any ending for these two will be epic.  I just hope there's plenty of Zuzana, too.  =)

In case you, too, are dying for more of this fantastic world, with its heartbreaking angels and chimera, check out the excerpt The Hollywood Reporter posted.  Seriously hoping the best for the adaptation.  And how lovely is that cover?  I'm so glad there were no changes on the covers in this series!

Now that you know what I'm dying to read, what are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  5. I can't wait for this one either. I love the cover and can't wait for it to be on my shelf with the others. I love Laini's writing and will read anything the woman puts out there to be read. I think this will be a long wait for it. good thing there are a million good books coming out to keep from going crazy with the wait. Perfect pick :-)

But I did promise myself I would read DoS&B before the end of the year. Then I'll just have to read the second one by April of next year! :) Great pick!
