Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Brenna Yovanoff's debut novel, The Replacement, was an instant New York Times bestseller. She has an MFA in creative writing from Colorado State University and currently lives in Denver.

More About the Author

I'm good at soccer, violent video games, and making very flaky pie pastry.

I'm bad at dancing, making decisions, and inspiring confidence as an authority figure. I suspect this is because I am short, and also terrible at sounding as though I have any idea what I'm talking about.

I was homeschooled until I was fifteen, which has probably affected my world view in ways I can't fathom.

Also, I really, really like parentheses. (Really.)

Customer Reviews

The writing, the characters, the story and the settings.
Midnyte Reader
The final battle was somewhat anti-climatic, but the story continues after the final showdown, and I very much enjoyed the unexpected ending.
J. Scully
Yovannoff's writing is exquisite, beautiful in its poetic simplicity and laced with breathtaking imagery.

The Space Between just blew me away. Lured in by the stunning, creeptastic cover and intriguing synopsis, I expected a lot when picking it up. And I wasn't disappointed. I was impressed and bewitched. From the moment I stepped into the mesmerizing, glorious world of Pandemonium I was spellbound. 10 pages in, I was hopelessly in love, devouring every word, craving more of Brenna Yovanoff's utmost brilliant writing. Fascinating mythology, imaginative world building, deliciously dark atmosphere - these are just three of many reasons why you should read this book. But wait, there's more...

Daphne is a daughter of Lilith and Lucifer, a half-angel, half-demon creature, who looks just like an extraordinarily beautiful, dark-haired girl (well, maybe except for her unnaturally white skin and metal dogteeth). She's never been to Earth, all she knows is the gray world of Pandemonium. World where everything is made of silver and metal - the walls, the floors, the furniture, even plants and flowers! Daphne is having a hard time figuring out where she belongs. She doesn't want to be like her soulless demon sisters, who visit Earth to feed on Lost Ones' feelings of sorrow and despair. But what else lies in store for her? She has no desire to leave Pandemonium, she's perfectly content exploring Earth through the things her brother Obie brings back from his trips. That's until Obie declares that he fell in love with a human woman and he decided to leave Pandemonium forever. Just before he leaves, Obie saves a bleeding boy named Truman and brings him back to Earth with him. And then Obie goes missing. Not even Lilith's powerful mirror-sight can help locate him. It's as if he never even existed... Lilith, eternally trapped in her steel garden, can't go looking for him.

As a big fan of The Replacement, I couldn't wait to get my hands on The Space Between -and the blurb didn't make it any easier. The oddness of it just captured me and I was curious to see how Yovanoff handled her unique idea of heaven and hell -and good and evil.

Daphne is a half-demon, half-angel daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. She lives in a strange sort of purgatory known as Pandemonium with her sisters, half-brother and other strange creatures from hell. Her life is far from exciting, before her brother Obie is kidnapped and Daphne travels to earth to find him -and instead finds a human boy who teaches her what it means to love and to be human.

From the very first page I was completely sucked into The Space Between. Yovanoff's unique depiction of heaven, hell and places in between was unlike anything else I've ever read -dark, twisted and yet strangely beautiful and compelling. Though I found Daphne to be a somewhat flat character, I couldn't help but find her fascinating. Yovanoff did an excellent job of creating a believable character who is innocent of real human relationships, and knows nothing about the earth or the people who inhabit it. Daphne's ignorance and self-discovery was incredibly compelling and pulled me in up until the very last page.

What really shined her for me was the writing. Not only does Yovanoff delivers a wonderfully written and atmospheric tale with captivating tones, unexpected twists and dark characters. More than anything, Yovanoff's world is completely unlike anything else I've ever read, and I love the fact that she doesn't shy away from dark characters deeper, more adult issues that infuse her novels with more depth than the average YA novel.

Yovanoff shines in her second novel, and I can't wait for the third. According to her blog, it's called Paper Valentine and will be out in 2013.

Yovanoff's writing is brilliant and vivid, though like other readers I was jarred by the switch in verb tenses.

This story moved quickly enough and was passably interesting; however the two main characters were simply unlikable. Daphne is just as selfish as her reviled parents, and Truman is possibly the weakest, most unattractive male character I have read in a long time. I am not sure when YA fiction started veering towards creating these super-emo, self-pitying, pathetic male characters, but its a definite trend (check out the Shiver books by Maggie Stiefvater) and it's really not appealing at all. While having frailties and weaknesses often creates interesting, multidimensional characters, I'm hard pressed as a reader to enjoy and root for a character who appears to have NO redeeming qualities.

Still, I am giving it three stars because the story held my attention very well in spite of the weakness of the characters.

Format: Hardcover
With strikingly haunting prose and vivid imagery of nightmarish scenes, The Space Between easily captured my attention from start to finish. Having my notions of "good" and "evil" manipulated until the line separating the two thinned and almost disappeared left my head spinning and the hopelessness that seemed to ooze from the pages was heartbreaking. But too many questions without answers has me feeling like I missed something.

Yovanoff is a master when it comes to the concept of evil. She manipulated the concepts we would generally diagnose as evil into something unrecognizable. The shades of grey were so plentiful that they became blurred, and it was hard to pick out who was supposed to be evil and who was supposed to be good. Her version of Hell was also fascinating. A city completely fabricated out of steel and chrome so that when the gates to the furnace opened, it wouldn't burn to the ground. Naturally, this means that anything that couldn't withstand the heat was reduced to ash. Time means nothing as there is no concept of time; it just doesn't exist. And ever-present is the Pit, the never-ending Hoard of souls, who "come into the city thrashing and shrieking" but after being visited by the pain demons, are left "blank and silent." Terrifying as it is, this is Daphne's home. Growing up in a city of perpetual evil, you would think Daphne would be a little rough around the edges, but somehow she escapes unscathed, full of innocence and the fear of her inner demon.

This was one of the things I had the hardest time believing. As the daughter of fallen angel Lilith, who has been banished from Heaven and Earth, and the devil himself, Lucifer, I found it hard to believe Daphne could be as good and naive as Yovanoff showed her to be.
