Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living... The astounding, must-read sequel to Laini Taylor's breathtaking DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE.
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine 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 a like 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 like to spread the word when I come across a book that excites me. I read Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor last weekend (sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone) and I'm all fired up about it. Thank you, Ms. Taylor, for a thrilling couple of days. I am in your debt. (Warning readers: this is one of those series that will have you tearing at your hair and gnashing your teeth waiting for the next installment. Be prepared.) - Stephenie Meyer
This is Romeo and Juliet on a sprawling fantasy stage. - Guardian
I'd been itching for the sequel of Smoke and Bone since finishing Laini's first book in one feverish sitting - and it was worth the wait. The second instalment is much darker, with more epic battles, suffering and loss . . . The ending is absolutely incredible - with a twist that completely catches you by surprise, leaving you dying to find out what happens next. The only downside is that I now have to try and keep myself occupied until the next book is ready. - Glamour.com

Taylor continues to build an irresistible fantasy world in this grim sequel to her masterful Daughter of Smoke and Bone . . . Taylor's dazzling writing and skill at creating suspense are strong as ever; fantasy lovers will gobble up this book with satisfaction - Publishers Weekly Starred Review on DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT
Days of Blood and Starlight reflects Laini Taylor's maturity as a writer, as well as depicting Karou's growth as the protagonist. The story is more compelling, the themes more grown up, and the romances more believable. This second book in the trilogy transports the reader to the very centre of the action; you soon forget it's a fight between ethereal being and beast; you forget that this is fantasy. - We Love This Book
An epic saga, a moving love story, and a thrilling fantasy, this is the second in a truly original trilogy - Living North Magazine
Hi! I write fantasy books. My latest is STRANGE THE DREAMER, about a young librarian, a mythic lost city, and the half-human children of murdered gods. Check it out :-) Before that I wrote the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE trilogy, which has been translated into 32 languages. It's about a blue-haired art student raised by monsters, a broken angel, and a war that has raged for 1000 years in another world. I also wrote LIPS TOUCH: THREE TIMES, which was a National Book Award finalist, and the DREAMDARK books. As well as various short stories and novellas.
Thanks for reading!!
