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.
The 10th anniversary edition of the second in Laini Taylor's breathtaking fantasy trilogy The story continues in this astounding, must-read sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone . . . Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living - one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and dying. Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.
