Everything is made of steel even the flowers How can you love anything in a place like thisDaphne 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 respons lack of affect can be a compelling thing to witness in a character from Hitchcock's cool blondes to Bret Easton Ellis' hollow men to Fassbinder's gallery of life's victims to probably every character that has ever sprung from the mind of Marguerite Duras lack of affect rarely fails to fascinate and now that I've done my due diligence in trying to sound as high brow and intellectual as I possibly can please meet affect less Daphne daughter of Lilith and Lucifer protagonist of the entrancingly eerie but deeply flawed Young Adult novel The Space BetweenYovanoff did a sterling job with this character poor demonic Daphne born and raised in Pandemonium Daphne has dead white skin gothic black hair and sharp gray dog incisors her wardrobe comes from across time so when she enters our world her outfits apparently look stylishly retro most importantly her lack of affect manages to be charming creepy disturbing and always utterly fascinating it makes for some amusing moments such as when Daphne is in our world trying to figure things out like party etiuette and what to do when a person is trying to rob you it also makes for many absorbing and even rather heartbreaking moments in particular when Daphne reacts to the death of a sister or when she blandly notes the lack of love she receives from her mother her lack of affect also becomes a perfect way to chart her increasing love for extreme loser Truman The Space Between's romance is one of the few I've read in a novel geared towards teens that did not leave me nauseated it was genuinely emotional in a decidedly non dramatic way I love that too bad Truman's such a loser thoughso Daphne must journey to our world in search of her lost brother and in the process becomes closely entwined with Truman and his fate he's a sad half breed unaware of his demonic parentage and prone to extreme fits of moping and suicidal ideation but since Daphne doesn't hold that against him I won't either Yovanoff's depiction of Pandemonium is superb and her description of Daphne experiencing non demonic reality is also very well done Lilith communicating with her daughter through any reflective surface from mirrors to fenders to bird eyes was a highly original touch a demon infant was another highlight plus the Lord of the Flies himself the dashing BeelzebubThe Space Between's villain the death angel Azrael is a surprising failure perhaps the author just can't relate to angels because all of the care she put in characterizing Daphne and her demonic family is absent in Azrael he's stridently monotonously one note and I resented his every appearance the climax of the novel felt rushed and was perhaps especially weak because of too much Azrael that blasted angel also ruins what could have been an interesting trip to Heaven alasdespite those flaws Yovanoff really excels at creating a strange and melancholy atmosphere with intriguing characters and a moving romance I loved the spare elegance of her prose the whole book was wonderfully original perfect for the teen goth in your life
