Amazing! Full of blood and death and pain and agony. The war between the seraphs and chimaeras has evolved into something much more dangerous to both sides. And Karou finds herself right in the middle of it. Laini Taylor doesn't hold her punches in letting this war take its realistic toll both on the soldiers and innocents. Brutal and merciless, thousands are being killed on both sides. The question is just how will it end? I'm zooming off to the next book! ( )

It took me a while to get through this book. Not because it didn’t keep my attention, but because the narrator has such a soothing voice, and it made me sleepy. lol I love these books so hard!

I’ve missed Karou and Akiva. I lov ethe way their actions intertwine even if they don’t know it. I also missed Zuzana and Mik. They crack me up. I love the banter between both of them. We are introduced to so many new characters. It is sometimes hard to keep up with them.

I like that we get a look into other parts of their world. There are also a few new characters that I loathe!!! It’s really hard to like some of them or feel any kind of sympathy.

Sorry this is so short but I don’t want to give a ton away, and the character names are hard to spell without seeing them. ;) ( )

The first time I found "Daughter of Smoke & Bone" on amazon.com I ordered it asap. When I finally got it I devoured it. The setting was charming, the characters were eccentric, Karou was bewitching and the mystery of who she is kept me going on reading page after page until I reached a horrible cliffhanger!

I finally have in my hands "Days of Blood & Starlight" and I finally have enough space to read it; the author started right where we were left hanging which was good.

I loved that the book started right where we left off, but I'm suffering a bit with how many new strange names and characters there are, I was used to the older group but now the book is filled with characters that at times I couldn't keep up who was who and why was that happening, in any case, I loved it and kept on reading. I ordered the third book.

In the last chapters, something horrible will happen... reading that scene was very hard and disturbing.

Finishing this book, I really want Karou and Akiva to be together like Mik and Zuzana. I don't care if they are a devil and an angel. They've just been through too much, and haven't even enjoyed each other. So not fair! ( )

I liked this book much more than the first of the series, because it had more story and turning points to it. I also like the underlying theme of the book: the peace and war duality. And I'm curious to see where the story is going. ( )
