From the Publisher:
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 Amazon.com, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."
Annotation:
In this sequel to the critically acclaimed DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, Karou finds herself desperately protecting her newly found people and hoping to avert war. The leaders of the chimaera and seraphim seem to be intent on a battle to the death, but Karou and her estranged lover, seraphim Akiva, are each on their own journeys to finding another way. Secreted away in the Atlas Mountains with Thiago, leader of the chimera, Karou creates warriors for protection. However, Thiago is hoping for something far more bloody. At the same time, Akiva is on Eretz considering ways to keep the emperor from genocide. While war and what it creates is the main focus here, there are also bits of humor in the form of Zuzana and Mik to lighten up the darkness.In this sequel to the critically acclaimed DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, Karou finds herself desperately protecting her newly found people and hoping to avert war.

Praise

"Taylor's dazzling writing and skill at creating suspense are strong as ever; fantasy lovers will gobble up this book with satisfaction, even if it offers less of the cross-genre appeal that made its predecessor so extraordinary." (starred review) 10/15/2012

"Taylor has a gift for nimble plotting and exquisite detail." - Sara Vilkomerson 11/23/3012

"Mostly about licking wounds in the wake of the opener's savage inner and outer conflicts, but well-endowed with memorable characters and turns of phrase." 10/15/2012
