Days of Blood and Starlight – Book 2 of  the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor

P. 60 She didn’t know why this part of the process unsettled her so much; she supposed it was the image of two creatures going off into the scree and only one coming back. She hadn’t seen the pit, and she hoped she never would, but some days she could smell it: a fug of decay that gave reality to what was usually remote.

daysofbloodandstarlightBLURB: Once upon a time an angel and a devil feel in love and dared to imagin a new way of living – one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was alike a jewel-box without a jewel – a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.

This was not that world.

    • I’m glad I’ve read the first one – it’s very fractured at present and if I hadn’t I think I would be all over the place… There isn’t the spiky humour there was in the first one, yet. But the writing is very good and I’m hoping it’ll soon pick up!

  1. Yay! I enjoyed Days of Blood & Starlight almost as much as Daughter of Smoke & Bone, and the story’s still fresh in my mind, since I read it last month. 🙂

    I just saw your response to Nish’s comment, btw. The humor does pick up after a while (mostly from Zuzanna and Mik’s end), but in general it’s a much darker book than its predecessor.

    • Oh Daughter of Smoke and Bone blew me away – it is a superb read. And though this one has started a little more uncertainly – there is no doubt she is a fantastic writer!
