All too often, a trilogy will succumb to that dreaded literary curse: Disappointing Final Book. We’ve all seen it: the first book is amazing, the second incredible, but the story is left at an unbearable cliffhanger. We loyal fans wait (and wait) impatiently for the conclusion, wishing, hoping, believing that this book will answer everything, and be perfect in every way. Instead… the letdown as our beloved series ends not with a bang but a whimper. This makes the reading of The Final Book an anxious task. Will it live up to those high, high expectations? Surpass them, even?
Dreams of Gods and Monsters is one of those rare, perfect finales. Full review here
Also - I got to interview Laini Taylor! (screeches of excitement all round, I have the best job in the world and her answers are fantastic, an interviewer's dream... yeah yeah I'll stop raving)
Anyway, here's the interview.
A HUGE thank you to Hachette for the advanced review copy!
