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.

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

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. 
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 perspectives. The first chapter is a Calista chapter, though so I’d say that her story takes precedence, just, over …

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
