The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Release date: November 15, 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 loved Brenna's debut novel The Replacement. It's a very beautifully written book with a great story. Here we see that once again, Yovanoff has been blessed with a gorgeous and totally creepy cover. Plus, it sounds like this story is something of a nod towards Milton's Paradise Lost. I'll definitely be getting my hands on this one as soon as I can.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
