fangirling for #3

31 March 2014

My third 'fangirling for...'' post is going to be showcasing a book I have been waiting DESPERATELY for. RUBY first introduced me to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series and since then I have flailed a lot over these books; I have perfected the art of 'random *fangirl* faces while reading an awesome book', and I have waited a LONG TIME, for the final book. A LONG TIME.
Now it is nearly here and ALL I CAN DO IS SCREAM AND DANCE AROUND BECAUSE GOOD GRACIOUS. Zuzana is my favourite character from the series, and always has been. Apparently I am like here, and i see that, from my e-mails to my height to me personality to..*strums  lip*. I like to think that Laini Taylor created her character based on me but..well..IT IT HAPPENED OKAY. She is my alter-ego (beside Hermione) and I pride myself on that fact because..well...who doesn't like Zuzana? Also can i just say, if you haven't even STARTED this series yet..( Zoe you're safe but EHEM. Amber..)..then
PLEASE READ IT or feel my wrath, *shakes tiny fist*, if not, i may have to drop something on your won't be PLEASANT, I shall turn into a Rabid Fairy - or shall i just lash out at you and kick you into some glass?...P.S this paragraph is like a dung heap with book references being the metaphoric diamonds. Which means if you haven't read the books you won't know where they are..which means..YOU NEED TO GO READ THE BOOKS. April  17th COME TO ME. Quickly. I mean..slowly, I don't want my exams. LET'S JUST CHANGE THE RELEASE DATE FOR TODAY. okay? Please. *goes to write a strong *begging* letter to the author and the publishers and everyone else involved*

Summary: 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? -from goodreads
Also did you know THE FILM RIGHTS HAVE BEEN SOLD TO UNIVERSAL PICTURES. I'm a little worried as I love this book so SO MUCH, so if the film let's it down i will be VERY ANNOYED. They'd better get Zuzana right. Shall i audition for her role? I think I might..AND ISN'T THE COVER BEAUTIFUL. GAH. *prances like a unicorns and tosses mane*
“She’d tried to believe it: that her heart didn’t matter, that she and Akiva didn’t matter, that there were worlds at stake and that was what mattered.”
p.s you can read the first two chapter here.

  4. YOU MENTIONED MEH. Danke. Sooo the rights have been sold to Universal...if a film is made, would you kill me if I watched it before reading it? :P


    This trilogy is so endlessly gorgeous and it has layers upon layers of complexity. *sighs* I love it very much. I need Dreams of Gods and Monsters in my life RIGHT NOW. >.<

    PLUS, the last line of Days of Blood and Starlight KILLED my tiny shipping heart. Karou and Akiva WILL BE TOGETHER WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT. Zuzanna and Mik though… :') I can just tell DoGaM is going to be so dark and beautiful and…JUST WHY CAN'T I HAVE IT IN MY HANDS YET?!
