Waiting on Wednesday: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #2)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.

Ar 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?

I have so much homework that I will probably not actually get to read Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor when it comes out Nov. 6th, but I WANT to drop everything and get involved. I was 100% absorbed by The Daughter of Smoke and Bone last Christmas. What are you waiting on this week?

  6. I keep meaning to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but just haven't. But at least I won't have to wait for a sequel if it's as good as everyone says!
