Everything is made of steel, even the flowers. How can you love anything in a place like this?
Daphne is the half-demon, half-fallen angel daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. Life for her is an endless expanse of time, until her brother Obie is kidnapped - and Daphne realizes she may be partially responsible. Determined to find him, Daphne travels from her home in Pandemonium to the vast streets of Earth, where everything is colder and more terrifying. With the help of the human boy she believes was the last person to see her brother alive, Daphne glimpses into his dreams, discovering clues to Obie's whereabouts. As she delves deeper into her demonic powers, she must navigate the jealousies and alliances of the violent archangels who stand in her way. But she also discovers, unexpectedly, what it means to love and be human in a world where human is the hardest thing to be.
This second novel by rising star Brenna Yovanoff is a story of identity, discovery, and a troubled love between two people struggling to find their place both in our world and theirs.
A Dream-Like Story
The Space Between is a book that really intrigued me by its peculiar and creepy premise. However, it wasn't until I read many good reviews about this book that I decided to finally get it and glue my eyes into its pages. It was the prologue that completely did it for me. The Biblical references and the way Yovanoff introduces the story is so brilliantly written that readers will feel bewitched and compelled to keep reading the bizarre wicked but alluring world Brenna Yovanoff created.
From the beginning, this book is absolutely engrossing and addictive. Yovanoff's bewitching settings and very peculiar characters are reason enough to dive into The Space Between and get carried away with the character's quest. However, halfway through the book I I felt that the high impression I had at the beginning were somehow decaying. I felt I needed more than what I was getting at that point. Yet, the culmination of the story rewarded me for the moment I felt myself detaching from the story. And when I say felt rewarded, good Lord! I mean I felt a satisfaction that goes beyond expectations! The ending of this book just blew my mind!
Heart-stopping, heartbreaking and breathtaking. The Space Between is a story of Misery, sacrifice, belonging, redemption and love. I think that The Space Between is also a novel that invites readers to think about the value of life. This book will probably leave many readers staring into space and thinking about the last few pages over and over again.
Good and Evil, Heaven and Hell and the Space Between, Brenna Yovanoff created a beautiful and wicked story where stereotyped characters cross all boundaries to become something unique that defies the nature of evil itself. Wonderfully crafted with extraordinary characters and a wondrous settings, The Space Between is one of those books that readers should absolutely immerse themselves into it to live this unique and dream-like story.
