Where "Daughter of Smoke & Bone" gleamed bright as moonlight, "Blood & Starlight" shows the darker side of the moon. Stakes are risen higher in this edgy sequel. The worlds of Eretz and Earth are painted with even broader strokes, as the war between angels and monsters deepens. Once I got to the halfway point I had a difficult time putting the book down. While I would have liked to see more interaction between Akiva and Karou, I enjoye Zuzana and Mik's storyline. The characters grew and matured greatly since the last novel and I can't wait to read "Gods & Monsters" for all its twists and turns. ( )

Loved it, as a fan of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, reading the sequel really was great, the world was just as vivid as in the past book, though the lack of variety in locales was a bit disappointing, but I'm sure will be made up for ( )

Completely failed to hold my interest. ( )

Oh god I hope the next book is this amazing!
The amount of character development in this book is ridiculous and I found it to be much more real then the first one. Definitely an amazing read. Not as good as the first one though... ( )

This is probably the toughest book I have read this year.Very bleak,harrowing and heartbreaking in parts.Beautifully written,but almost unbearably tense.This author is remarkable,this book,though dark and hardly a pleasant read is probably going to be one of my best reads of 2013,as was her first in the series,Daughter of Smoke and Bone.Brave,uncompromising,giving no quarter to her targeted young audience,this author is one to watch. Highly recommended ( )
