The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff - Ashley's Pre-Reading

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: The Space Between
Author: Brenna Yovanoff
Year Published: 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.

Why?: I recently read Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff and really enjoyed it. This book has been on my TBR list for a while now based on the synopsis alone, but reading Paper Valentine made me want to get my hands on a copy of this book ASAP. 

Expectations: Since I enjoyed Paper Valentine so much, I have pretty high expectations for this book. I expect the plot to be totally different, but the writing style to be pretty similar. I expect an engaging story that is a little creepy, a little mysterious, and has excellent world-building. 

Judging a book by its cover: I love everything about this cover. I love that everything is made of steel, I love the girl on the bench, I love how the red makes everything look really creepy... I would totally pick this up off a shelf if I saw it somewhere. It's gorgeous!
