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.

My Thoughts: 

Brenna Yovanoff did an incredible job with the Replacement and I couldn’t wait to get more from her. The Space Between was one of the titles that I eagerly awaited for a long time!

The world building in The Replacement was fantastic, but in The Space Between, the world is absolutely amazing and brilliantly written. Pandemonium is depicted upon the cover, just as I had imagined it and I absolutely loved the fact that pretty much everything was made of steel, even the flowers. Yovanoff has the amazing ability to truly make the setting become one of the characters and she always manages to make it dark and playfully twisted.

I loved the fact that Yovanoff wrote another book, which I can only describe as darkly-delicious. The world and the characters are dark and oh so much fun to read about.

Brenna Yovanoff has a great writing style that is both addictive and enticing, however; I felt that with this book the writing fell just a little flat for me, mainly in the sense that I found the main character; Daphne to be un-relatable and I didn’t see her as a fully developed character. But other than that all of the characters were great and I especially enjoyed reading about Lilith.

Brenna has an incredible imagination and I loved the stories that she tells, even The Space Between will be a book that I will always remember because of this incredible world and her wonderful writing style. I look forward to reading more from the author who made me fall head over heels for darkly-delicious books; Brenna Yovanoff!
