Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she's ever known.

When a brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat--and against larger dangers that loom on the horizon. They begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves--maybe even toward love.

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.

    "Good performance but..."

    I didn't appreciate the narrator changing her pronunciation of some character names. It got to be confusing at times.

    "Best AUTHOR EVER!!!!"

    This series is truly a masterpiece!! Laini Taylor's brilliance is unmatched! She weaves an amazing story that leaves you captivated. The characters are awesome, as is the storyline! And Khristine Hvam is just as amazing as a narrator!

    "Excellent YA series"

    It's an imaginative world that is internally consistent- angels, beasts, purposeful reincarnation, and magic. Her landscapes are so clear you can see them.
    There is a unrequited romance of course- it's YA-it's all very magically romantic . It's a really good series.

    "Too dark -- no hope"

    This series started off great -- fun, interesting, and engaging. But the author took a dark turn and kept getting darker and darker until by the middle of the 3rd book there is simply no hope and every page was just more pain and suffering heaped on the lead characters and through them on to me, the listener. I couldn't take it any more. I need some glimmer of light or hope for a story to be worth reading. I couldn't finish it.

    "Great fairytale"

    Very imaginative and entertaining. I really enjoyed it more than I expected to, especially since it's supposed to be for YAs {which I most definitely am not}.

    "Not With a Roar But With a Whimper"

    I wanted to like this book. I really tried.

    The entire thing was inordinately dragged out. I actually prayed for the ending of the book to come swiftly. I fell asleep listening multiple times. Hell, I fell asleep listening to the last 10 minutes of the book!
    (Spoilers ahead!) Conflict resolution was weak and predictable. All of a sudden, after making a HUGE deal about portals to Earth in the first book, there are suddenly and conveniently more. New and vibrant characters were introduced, only to receive shoddy dialogue and poor performances.

    "a bit disappointed"

    I can't say I loved this series. I'm sorta wishing I stopped at book 2. This book was slow and verbose. Half way thru I just wanted to get it done already. And the ending? Not near as satisfying as I'd hoped. I found my mind wandering. I'm really not sure what the fuss is all about. I just couldn't get past the feeling that there was a lot of filler in this book. While I loved the characters, the story just dragged for me. So book 1 was the strongest, but it was an uphill climb for 50% of it. Needless to say, I am done with the author.

    "Interesting Ending"
    What made the experience of listening to Dreams of Gods & Monsters the most enjoyable?

    I think the narrator the most because she helped with story, characters, emotion and other things I can't really describe.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zuzana! I don't know, she's awesome


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I remember Khristine Hyam from the Iron Fey series and it's similar with similar pace, character voice and other things.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Within a week or so. Most of the books I read/listen to are usually within a week


    Any additional comments?

    It was good. I liked it. Not the ending that I was thought it was going to be but it was satisfying, I guess.

    "Loved this one!"

    I read book 1 and enjoyed it I really did but having listened to the audio books for the final 2 books i love them so much more. Hearing the different voices and let's be honest the pronunciations of names and jazz was key. More though just being able to close my eyes and visualize everything I'm hearing and with a world of angels and Beasts that is huge.
