The Space Between was so amazing and heartbreaking--I loved it! I find the Lilith myth very intriguing, and that is one of the things that finally made me pick up this book. That and the fact that our main character Daphne is daughter of the demon Lilith and fallen angel Lucifer, yes please! I seriously loved the mythology in this book!
I also loved the main character, Daphne. She was very strong and independent, especially for someone who has spent her whole life in Hell. This also made her quite innocent when it came to earthly customs, and adorable, too. I also loved Truman! He was such a sweet boy in so much pain. I just wanted to kiss it away and put him in my pocket where no one could hurt him. Just--what he was going through and what it was doing to him was so heartbreaking!
Another thing I loved was how Daphne was the one to save Truman over and over instead of the other way around. Nope, no damsels in distress here. Truman and Daphne were just so adorable together! Their relationship was sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time!
Moving on! So, typically angels are the good guys and demons are the bad guys, right? Not here, they’re not! And I loved that! You actually feel sympathy for the demons and the angels are jerks. It’s almost like in Supernatural! :D Crazy!
Speaking of crazy, there were many plot twists I did not see coming, plus that ending... whoa! I cried my face off. No, seriously. I had tears streaming down my face trying to push down sobs that threatened to escape... I didn’t need my parents to ask what was wrong, haha.
Speaking of the ending, even though it was quite shocking I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last epilogue-like chapter. It wasn’t because of the pain it elicited (okay, well maybe a little bit because of that), but because of the flash-forward deal going on.
But overall, I loved it! The story of redemption and love was intriguing with very interesting characters. I loved the mythology behind it and the setting of the wonderful Underworld/Hell. Everything was just so imaginative and beautiful. I highly recommend this one!
