The Space Between book. Everything is made of steel, even the flowers. In just two books (The Replacement and now The Space Between), she's convinced me of her skill and understanding and finesse as a writer and made me trust that, whatever she's writing about, I will want to read it. I was a little fearful of the dreaded "sophomore slump" with The Space Between, and clearly there was no need for me to worry.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. The Space Between.

By the time I’m done comparing the relative merits of two different sun bonnets, I’ve decided that we have absolutely no choice but to leave Chicago. It’s dark when I start back to the hotel, and the street is a sea of headlights and traffic lights.

  • Today's review is on The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff

    The Space Between is a touching and unique story of loss, love, and finding who you really are. At times I found myself angry, and sometimes so sad that my sight became blurry with unshakeable tears.

    Daphne is the daughter of the first of the Fallen; Lucifer, and Lilith; Adams wife before Eve. This makes Daphne half-demon and half-angel. Living in Pandemonium, she is not only bored, but lonely and feeling unloved. She never sees Lucifer, and her mother never shown any sign of affection towards her. The only one that show's her any semblance of love is her half-brother Obie.

    Obie; like Daphne, is different from Lilith's other children. Because he is the son Adam and not Lucifer, his heart is human. He spends a large portion of his time on Earth "working" in a hospital. His job is to care for "The Lost Ones." The nephilim. The children of Angels and humans. It is through his job that he finds Truman. A boy in desperate need of being saved.

    Obie has gone missing after leaving Pandemonium to live with the human woman that he loves, and Daphne somehow feels that she is responsible. Because of this, she decides to search for him on Earth. There is great danger however, in the form of Azrael; the Angel of Death, and Dark Dreadful; the horrible creature that kills demons and drinks their blood.

    The only person who can help Daphne is the last person that saw Obie alive. Truman. But Truman is on the road to self destruction, unable to continue on with his life after the death of his mother.

    Through their journey to save Obie, Truman and Daphne find redemption and love, along with a baby. How? Read the book to find out.

    The Space between is filled with exceptional creativity. The sweetness and sensitivity of the love that grows between Daphne and Truman was a delight to read.

    A fantastic book that just needs a bit more editing to correct the mistakes that are still within it.

    3.5 of 5 stars

  • Oh my goodness. I cannot put into words how much I adore Brenna Yovanoff's writing. As a reader I am in awe. As a writer I am jealous. Lol. She has a way of crafting a story that is eerie, beautiful, and compelling all at once. This was a book I could not put down.
    Daphne is the half-demon, half-fallen angel daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. Immediately she has my attention with Daphne and her life in Pandemonium alone. We are propelled into the story as Daphne ventures to earth in a search for her brother Obie who has gone missing. This is where I fall in love with Daphne as a character. She is the daughter of Lucifer. Her home is Hell. And yet the compassion and love she feels for Obie is something so beautiful it makes her stand out from the world around her. On her journey she meets Truman. And there is just no other way to say this. Poor Truman is as screwed up as they come. And I love him for it. Daphne and Truman have one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful relationships I've seen in YA today. They are both wrong for a lot of reasons but they are so right for each other. They make each other feel hope when hope seems to be lost. Truman follows Daphne on her search for Obie and they begin to fall for each other. I'm going to try to keep this spoiler free, so I'll stop there.
    The Spaces Between was mesmerizing and brilliant and everything I love in a book. Brenna Yovanoff earned a place as one of my favorite authors with this one. Loved it!

  • One of the best and most imaginative books I've ever read- an instant classic. It's a love story that isn't overrated or overblown and extremely well written. I love this author and all of her other novels- each one is a treat! You won't want to put it down. It also has great re-readability so you can enjoy the story over and over again.

  • This was a great read. The characters are dark and complex, and the backdrop is creepy and intriguing. This is cartainly a stand out YA paranormal book in a sea of books containing imitations and unimpressive charcters. I loved Daphne; she was frightening and demonic, yet innocent and child - like at the same time. I loved the beautiful descriptive language the author used to characterize her heroes/ villains. I had such a clear picture in my head of what the two main characters looked like, and I always appreciate that quality in a book. I can't stand it when I finish a book and still have no idea exactly what the main characters look like. Not so with this author; I have a glorious "painting" of both Daphne and Lilith burned into my mind. I was drawn in by the gorgeous cover art, and was not disappointed. I'd definitely read more from this author, well done.

  • Deliciously creepy, this is the tale of a girl (the spawn of Lucifer and Lilith) learning to accept herself as the half angel, half demon princess that she is, capable of great acts of love, bravery and selflessness, even if she was born and raised in hell. Compelling characters and a fast paced plot make for a fun and cute read, that is at times eerie and haunting, but always beautiful in it's wording and inclusion of detail. I picked this book up because I liked Yovanoff's The Replacement a lot, but I can honestly say I like this one much better. I love Yovanoff's tendency to humanize the evil and ugly characters, while shining light on the ugly that exist inside even the most beautiful specimens.
    If you're a fan of YA novels that involve angel/devil mythology, or the writing of Maggie Stiefvater or are just looking for a creepy but cute read in this genre, look no further than The Space Between. :)

  • The Space Between is such a lovely and dark story. I was a bit hesitant about reading this one because I was not such a fan of her first novel. I was captivated right away and not wanting to put the book down. I will admit I did get a bit emotional towards the end, having to put the book aside for a bit and return later. Any story that causes me to spring a leak is a good one and probably one I will reread at some point. I love that this is a twist on the angel/demon stories too! Told from the demons point of view-although she does not really want to be like other demons.
    This story makes it in my top ten reads for the year!
