Waiting on Wednesday – Days of Blood and Starlight

October 3, 2012

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Days of Blood and Starlight is the highly anticipated sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I loved the first book and simply cannot wait for the sequel.

Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor

Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Published: November 6th, 2012
Links: Amazon   Book Depository


Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.

This is not that world.

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 a 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?

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone is still very high on my TBR list, so I won’t read the summary, but these series seem amazing!

    Amazing WoW pick! 😀 I had this one as my WoW pick a couple weeks back. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of my all time favorite books so I couldn’t be more excited about Days of Blood and Starlight!

    I wanted so much to like this series but didn’t! I read the first book and couldn’t get into it. I really need to find another series to go crazy about! The Hunger Games is kind of old already….:-)

      It’s definitely time for another amazing YA series. Come on authors 🙂
