Waiting on Wednesday (5): Laini Taylor - Days of Blood and Starlight

Woo! I had a crazy weekend (in a good way!) and I'm still winding down from it.  Review of Dreamless by Josephine Angelini is in the works. In the meantime, here's my WoW:

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Days of Blood and Starlight
Author: Laini Taylor
Publisher: Little, Brown & Co
Release Date: November 6th, 2012 
Summary (from Goodreads):
In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a "must read" by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."

Why I Look Forward to This: Daughter of Smoke and Bone was absolutely fantastic, and its ending left me wanting more more more. I really need to see what's happening between Karou and Akiva, whether her family's alive and what she's going to do next. Taylor's prose and imagery are amazing. Cannot WAIT.


  1. I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone so I can't wait for this one either! What a stunning cover. Great pick Keksi!
