Once upon a time, and angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.
This is not that world.
Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is--and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and world suffered for it.
In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.
While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope.
But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?

I love that this book doesn't suffer from weak middle book syndrome. I can't wait to get to Dreams of Gods...
Taylor's style of writing reaches a slow-building crescendo that is well-worth the long attention span and extensive effort soaking in this book needs. There's an abundance of dark, heart-wrenching scenes revolving around Karou & Akiva, there's pounding, tense action, there's light glimmers of hope,...
Hi guys, I hope you're having a great day! This is my review to Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor and is the second book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy. Once upon a time, an angel and a devil held a wishbone between them. And its snap split the world in two. Once upon a time, ...
