Waiting on Wednesday #11: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

 "Waiting On" Wednesday 
 is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My next eagerly anticipated book is:

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?

Genre:  YA Fantasy Hardcover, 528 pages
Expected publication: April 8th 2014 by Little, Brown & Company

My Thoughts
This is hands down my favorite series.  Taylor has an eloquent writing style and is a wonderful story teller.  I'm currently re-reading the first two in this series in anticipiation of this third book!
