Tilt To Panic: Discussing Dreams of Gods and Monsters

So the time has finally come for me to finish Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, and as before I’ll be breaking this book down into segments and posting a weekly review/discussion post/wordflail about the chapters I read.

I left things at Part 3 (AKA chapters 23 to 34) of the book, in which a lot of the focus seems to be on various characters’ relationships – mostly romantic, though not very secure … for various reasons.

Dear Geek Place is my new home on the internet, though I've been around here before - I am the blogger formerly known as @EffingRainbow. Here, you can still find reviews of science fiction and fantasy books, but hopefully more besides, as I throw myself cheerfully out into the world and attempt to chronicle my experiences, one adventure at a time.
