LoveReading Expert Review of Days of Blood and Starlight

One of our Books of the Year 2013.

The second part in theDaughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy is really original. Laini Taylor has created a thoroughly believable story where angels and devils live partly in today’s real world, and partly in the world of Eretz; a fantasy realm of angels and Chimaeras.  It is a dark tale of hatred and struggle, but the plausible characters and the thrilling plot make it a gripping read.

Laini Taylor Press Reviews

'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 'Plunges us into a world of beauty and horror ... intricately plotted ... it's a book that flies between worlds on blood-tipped wings and grips like a magical vice
Daily Mail

'Fantasy and romance combine in Days of Blood and Starlight ... If you've ever wondered what would happen if an angel and a devil fell in love, you're about to find out.'
Sunday Express

 

'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
