The Space Between by Brenna Jovanoff
Release Date: November 15th, 2011
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.
I was really excited to read The Space Between. I had heard so much about Ms. Yovanoff's writing and yeah, like I said I was really excited. And..I can just say that her writing was amazing. I was hooked and I loved the plot!
Daphne as a character was ver different from her sisters and that kind of surprised me, but only 'kind of'! She was very sweet and caring and her sudden feelings for Truman were also surprising! But I guess this book was all about surprises.. Anyways, Truman, on the other hand, was soooo...I can't really find the words to describe him. He was like a withering soul (I don't even know if that's an actual expression)! He was sad, mad, tired and even more tired. I felt so sorry fo him and I was so glad that Daphne took care of. I also loved Daphne's bother Obie. I got the impression that he was a responsible person.
I can't really say something other than that I loved this book. I will definitely be checking out Ms. Yovanoff's other book, The Replacement!
