Cover Reveal & Excerpt: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
Series: Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: April 1st 2014

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?

OH GOD. OH GOD. Holy crap. I-I can’t even… *screams* AAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

It’s the freaking gorgeous cover for Dreams of Gods & Monsters, a book I am absolutely DYING to read! God. GOD. I WANT THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW. *cries* Just LOOK at the cover. It’s beautiful. Stunning. And lucky for us, we have an excerpt to go with it!

Excerpt

“Step right up, worlds, thought Karou, get your disaster here! She cast again around the table, but she was surrounded by warriors in the midst of a war council, and everything that had been decided here could be filed under “Of course, idiot. What did you think was going to happen?” Still, she tried. She said, “There is no acceptable level of collateral damage. And, humans aside, what about us? How many of us will die?”

“As many as necessary,” responded Liraz from across the table, and Karou wanted to shake the gorgeous ice queen angel of death.

“What if none of it is necessary?” she demanded. “What if there’s another way?”

“Do you have another idea?”

And, of course, Karou didn’t. Her grudging admission—“Not yet.”—was bitter.

“If you think of any, I’m sure you’ll let us know.”

Oh, the slice of her gaze, that sardonic, dismissive tone. Karou felt the angel’s hatred like a slap. Did she deserve it? She darted a glance at Akiva, but he wasn’t looking at her. It was beginning to feel as though he would never look at her again.

“If we’re through here,” cut in Thiago, “we have resurrections to perform before we move.” And that was it. Thought Karou as the council broke up: Cue apocalypse.”

And can you believe it? There might even be a movie of Daughter of Smoke & Bone! SO exciting!

If you haven’t read the series, you need to NOW. It’s one of my favorite series of all time. It has the most gorgeous writing, world-building, and characters. God, I really miss the world and Karou and Akiva. I just CAN’T wait until April freaking 2014! Give this book to me now! *grabby hands*
