Why did th book affect me so much, and why did I rate it so highly? " In a few days' time, I hope that thought wo n't creep into my head when I think of Brenna Yovanoff 's sophomore novel, The Space Between, a darkly beautiful story about emons and mortals, grief and pain, healing and redemption.

With those experiences of mine, I read anothe essa with an open heart that managed to resonate with these characters and their own motions, all jagged edges and unfulfilled hopes and disquieting fears.The Space Between follows a girl and oy, two strangers embroiled in the dark ( and sometimes deadly) matters of hell, heaven, and earth.

Though I 'm usually always wary when it goe to any angel/demon fiction these days, I new as soon as I read Yovanoff 's gorgeous prologue – telling the ale of Lilith through the arration of Daphne – that I ever could have worried.

It was occasionall very much a painful reading experience for all the motion of it, but I felt relieved ( and a bit elated) once I finished.

Thi in and of itself says enough about how I felt about his tal, do n't you hink? Now that I 've otten all my gushing out, I am sad to ay that The Space Between wo n't be for veryone, but I urge everyon who 's interested in it to ive it try.

I gave him redemption, even if I will definitely be forgiven. ” – Beelzebub Kindle Location 3357-3558 What attracted me to “ The Space Between ” was the Lilith story line.

he legend of Lilith in Yovanoff “ The Space Between ” doesn ’ t ecessarily have to breathe truth for Daphne ’ s tal to be pushed to life.

Daphne showed true promise when she turne to the assistanc of a lost one; the half-breed child of a fallen angel and a human with the ai of her brother Obie when he was leaving purgatory for good to be with the lost one he loved.

Ahh, Truman, the boy Daphne and Obi fought to save and wouldn ’ t have if it ere not for Beelzebub.

As this story charges forward with Daphne leaves purgatory in a desperate search for Obie who has gone missing.

Trials and tribulations and discoveries these two make are vital to the story.As a parent, I think tha is odd but my favorite characters are Beelzebub and Obi. Beelzebub knew his reign in hell would end but he sacrificed it for his brother.

Though his roll was just to provide a reason for thi story line, it was his devotion to family, love and life that spoke volumes to me.

My final thoughts… To say that “ The Space Between ” is a simila story would be an understatement.

Will you escape hell to save someone you loved?

Being basically a blue blooded princess amongst her many relatives, she resides in Hell Pandemonium, where she hangs out with Beelzebub and other emons, mostly her sisters, the Lilim, girls with metal teeth.

How coul one not love metal teeth? But our Daphne is sort of an emo kid, she 's not happy with Pandemonian traditions of dating and succubing, she 's looking for something with deeper meaning and more thoughtful ( that might be her angelic heritage taking over), so she 's an outsider pretty much.

Daphne 's watching Earth TV all day long and thinks a lot about life on Earth.

I think everything on Earth is new for Daphne, but actually for me, plus what she mostly does here is hanging in demon-profiled parties and wearing some vintage clothes, and it 's all so ...

Mythological part was seriously lovely and interesting, but that 's it.

Before you an say " part of hat world, " a human boy with angel blood pops into the new arrivals platform, and explaining how her kin are all eying him like a bunch of hell hounds eying tasty winged hotdog, she saves him and brings hiiiiiim toooo liiiiife. ( I uess you ould tel she woke him up inside.) However, Azrael, the angel of death, is going around killing demons who outstay their welcome on Earth with a monster assassin called, and I kid you not, " Dark Dreadful. " Her rother, Obie, is one of hese, and it urns out the human angel boy -- whose name is Truman -- is the only link to finding him.

But Brenna Yovanoff decided she was going to Make Angels Sexy Again ( probably printed on hats, hanging on the rack right above the Evanescence CDs), and in case you do n't bother me, hero and heroine have sex while lying in th bathroo, because thi does n't sound uncomfortable at all.Honestly, this was pretty stupi and carries all kinds of trigger warnings ...

It keeps me a little of another young adult ook I read this little while ago by Jenny Trout called SUCH SWEET SORROW.
