"Waiting On" Wednesday: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

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

My WoW pick this week is:

Title: Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Author: Laini Taylor
Publisher: Little, Brown Kids
Publication Date: April 1st 2014
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Paranormal
ISBN: 9780316134071

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?

Why I'm Waiting:
 Okay now, do I really even have to say anything?!?!? The Daughter of Smoke & Bone series has been nothing but stunning so far. Laini Taylor is one of my favorite authors and she has an incredible talent for creating wonderfully unique worlds and characters. I am extremely excited to see what will become of some of my all-time favorite characters in book 3!I would do just about anything to get my paws on a copy of this book YESTERDAY! But alas, it does not release until April 2014....
