If you’re a fan of paranormal romance, check out The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff, which became available to the public earlier this month. I opened up the first page and have to admit I was quite shocked – and not necessarily in a good way – when I read the first page. But, I powered on, and soon couldn’t put the book down. The book couldn’t have possibly been more different from the last book I read, The Marriage Plot, but it was exactly what I was looking for!
The Space Between is the tale of a demon girl, Daphne, who goes to Earth to find her brother, Obie, who is also a demon but is on Earth for a while. Daphne and Obie’s mother has a vision that Obie is in trouble. Because Daphne is half human/half demon and able to visit Earth, she is tasked with finding her brother. When Daphne goes to Earth, the first person she finds is one of Obie’s old friends, Truman. Truman has just attempted suicide and Daphne helps revive him. Soon, Truman joins Daphne in the search to find Obie before it is too late.
There are just the right amounts of paranormal, action, and romance in this book. For me it took some getting used to reading about demons, but once I got the hang of it, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
If you’re a fan of young adult paranormal romance and have already devoured The Space Between, you might also enjoy these titles (click on images for links):
Don’t YA Paranormal Fiction books have the greatest covers?
This has definitely put me in the mood to read more books that are centered around fantasy/the paranormal/science fiction. Have any good recommendations for what I should read next?
