Dreams of Gods & Monsters 

(Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3)
Hardcover, 613 pages 
Published April 8th 2014 by Little, Brown & Company

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?

My Thoughts
I'm not sure words can describe how much I love this series.  I've been waiting soooooo long for this third book to come out!  Now I'm planning re-reading the trilogy (for the fourth time!).

About this quote...It's so sad, but also holds a lot of hope.  Akiva and Karou are star-crossed lovers with worlds (literally) separating them.  Everything they do in the name of love seems to pull them further apart.  Finally, though, they see a possible way to save their world and even possibly be together.  They just have to convince the rest of their armies/families/friends that they have a common enemy, and it's not each other.
