Waiting on Wednesday: Dreams of Gods and Monsters

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.
Yes, I am back again with another WoW post. I am such a pack follower. LOL! Anyways, it's only because I found yet another book I am looking forward to reading.  Since I started the Spring Sequel reading challenge I have been plowing through a few series.  I have just finished book two and book three just came out this week.  Perfect timing!  I am just on a huge library wait list.  So my pick is a literal "WAITING".  I know everyone has done this one but I thought it would be cool to post about a book I am on a waiting list for.

This week's "can't wait to read" selection is...
Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3)by Laini Taylor
Release Date: April 8, 2014
Publisher: Little Brown and Co.

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?

Editorial Reviews
