Dreams Of Gods And Monsters (Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Book 3) by Laini Taylor Review

Hi, ForeverBookers, I hope you had a good Christmas! I know that I did :)! 

Anyway, getting into Dreams Of Gods And Monsters, wow! What a book! It takes off from where Days Of Blood And Starlight ended so there will be spoilers below as I can't really review a final book in a trilogy without using spoilers. 

Days Of Blood And Starlight ended with Karou and her family of Chimaera making a pact with Akiva and his followers of Angels. They plot to start a revolution against the bad or White Angels, who are following their leader, Jael (the supposed successor to Joram who was killed off in the 2nd book) who wants to start an apocalypse. The White Angles want to basically take over Eretz (the world of the Chimaera) along with the human world as well. Akiva's group (with the Chimaera) want to stop this from happening. There's plotting, action, comedy, sweet romantic parts and a betrayal that I didn't see coming. There are parts set in different places in our world as well as in Eretz as well. Also there's a subsequent storyline that joins with the main one in the end about a girl discovering she's something else. 


The writing in this book is so rich and dense (but not in a bad way). It really absorbs you into the world of the book and makes it seem like your in the story with the characters.

This book wraps up the series nicely although I wanted a little more in the way of a forever for the 2 main characters. Apart from that though, the story ends how it should I believe. 

I'm giving this book 4.5 stars. If you want something that will grip you and not let you go until you've read the last word on the last page I suggest picking up this series. However, if you want a romance as I did when reading this maybe give it a pass. As I said in my review of the other books, Daughter Of Smoke And Bone was brilliant and really set the stage for a great story, Days Of Blood And Starlight carried on that story but without a romance. It was mainly war, war, war. This book continued the war, war, war but didn't allow for much else. 

I will pick my next TBR book (or series ) soon so my next review will be up when I've finished the first book there.

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…
