In the second novel of the Daughter and Smoke and Bone series, Laini Taylor kicks up everything into overdrive. While I enjoyed the first book, I feel like everything just seems more polished in this one. Not only is the writing better, but the characters are more fully formed and I loved the way Taylor was able to incorporate so much humor into this book. DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT is dark, and a lot of the stuff that happens in it will probably break some hearts, but at the same time, it doesn’t feel like a heavy book.

While we find out what Karou really is, at the same time, there are more questions that arises, keeping the book moving at a fast pace. I really like Karou and Akiva, but I think my favorite character of the series is probably Zuzana. She has so many adorable and funny moments in this book that she really became the star of the show. I just love supportive friends like that in novels and she’s definitely a big reason why I think you should try this series.

Now as you can tell, I’m intentionally avoiding talking about the plot of this story because it would just involve too many spoilers, but I will say that the ride just gets bumpier for these characters but it’s still very fun and enjoyable to read.

I can’t think of another series that’s like this one. The setting, the mythology, it’s all so unique you can’t help but feel mystified by it all. I would definitely recommend trying this series if you haven’t already, and if you can, try the audiobooks because I think the narrator does an excellent job with accents and bringing these characters to life, especially Zuzana. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

  1. This is one of my all time very favorite series. It is phenomenal and the writing is so damn good. I went and bought all three in hardcovers which I almost never do, had to have those covers. It is totally unique and I so wish more people were aware of it.

    1. I can see why you enjoyed this series so much! It’s so unique and different than what’s out there. Do you have a favourite book in the series? After having finished this one, I think this one is my fave but I’m about to start the last one today!
