Hey Guys! I am coming to you with another book review today! Days Of Blood And Starlight is the second book in the Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Trilogy (Daughter Of Smoke And Bone #2). So, without further ado, let’s get into the review!
*Mark: This is a spoiler free review!*
*Mark: All thoughts and opinions are on my own.*
“Once upon a time, a girl lived in a sandcastle, making monsters to send through a hole in the sky.” – Days Of Blood And Starlight, Laini Taylor.
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.
Laini’s writing is so different from the other authors I have read. The writing style for this book was so beautiful, lyrical and mysterious in its own way. Also, I loved how she switched the POVs between Karou, Akiva, Seeva, etc.
For example, a click on your thumb and the POV changes and everything makes sense.
All the characters in this book are important. You will care about all of these characters because they are lovable characters. (And when a character dies, you will cry because it shatters your heart into pieces).
Overall, I give this book a 99.5% rating. If you have not read Days Of Blood And Starlight, please go and read it now! It’s so good! Highly recommend you to read it. But, read Daughter Of Smoke And Bone before reading Days Of Blood And Starlight.
“A dream dirty and bruised is better than no dream at all.”
AWWWWWW! I loved this quote so much!
“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 a 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.”
