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.

Art 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?

bookreviewIt 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. 😉
