What power can bruise the sky?

Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera's rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.

When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited--not in love, but in tentative alliance against their common enemy. 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.

But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters?

The New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion as--from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond--humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and really enjoyed Days of Blood and Starlight, so was really looking forward to reading the conclusion to the series – and boy, was i ever disappointed. The story is so thin it easily could have been told in 200 pages; for every relevant sentence there are many, many that are pointless fluff. How the ending open to a possible new series/spinoff only added unnecessary length (the last 50 pages could have been torn out without affecting the story whatsoever). In short, do yourself a favour and give this book a pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review from Swept Away By Books To anyone who has been around my blog for a while, my love for this series is very well known. The writing is spectacular, the world building is perfectly done, tensions are always high, the love story is epic and the characters are brilliant. Dreams of Gods and Monsters finished this series off perfectly. Taylor did a brilliant job of subtly recapping the events of the previous books and I loved the way she went back from the epilogue of Days of Blood and Starlight to explain how they all got to be where they were. It wasn't non stop action, and it wasn't the happiest ending, but I never expected there to be. It felt so sincere to the characters and storyline. Karou and Akiva were easily my favourite part of this book. They both were of the mind that they were ready for happiness, and despite every hardship that had come in their way in the past, they weren't going to let it consume them anymore. They began to rely on each other and their moments together were infinitely sweet. One thing I love about Laini is that, even though this series is young adult, she lets it known that her characters have sex and want it to. It's refreshing and allows for brilliant build up and tension. The secondary characters once again, shone throughout this book and made it absolutely amazing. Mik and Zuzana were hilarious and loyal and so so strong through everything. Ziri was brilliant, and I am so happy with how much he was featured, as well as his ending. Liraz was my biggest and happiest surprise of all. Her development was so genuine and heart warming! Taylor also introduced a new character in Eliza, who I was a little indifferent to. She really didn't make any sense to me until the ending and i'm glad she ended up playing the part she did. Overall, I am seriously struggling to put into words how amazingly wonderful and perfect this book was to finish off a series that is in my top 3 favourites of all time. I am exceptionally sad to see these characters go, but am very pleased with the ending they had. One other thing, Taylor referenced the butterfly shawl scene from Daughter of Smoke and Bone and it is my favourite passage from a book ever. I teared up when she mentioned it!
