Description

It began with DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE It continued with DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT It ends with DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS Common enemy, common cause. When Jael's brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz ...something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world. What power can bruise the sky? From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theatre that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy. At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?show more

Review quote

Praise for the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy: - I like to spread the word when I come across a book that excites me. I read Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor last weekend (sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone) and I'm all fired up about it. Thank you, Ms. Taylor, for a thrilling couple of days. I am in your debt. (Warning readers: this is one of those series that will have you tearing at your hair and gnashing your teeth waiting for the next installment. Be prepared.) Stephenie Meyer This is Romeo and Juliet on a sprawling fantasy stage. Guardian Heartbreak, war and magic spells abound in this captivating romance ... There's slaying aplenty, but Taylor mitigates the violence with an unquenchable belief in the restorative powers of love and hope - and magic Marie Claire Plunges us into a world of beauty and horror ... intricately plotted ... it's a book that flies between worlds on blood-tipped wings and grips like a magical vice Daily Mail Fantasy and romance combine... If you've ever wondered what would happen if an angel and a devil fell in love, you're about to find out. Sunday Express Transports the reader to the very centre of the action; you soon forget it's a fight between ethereal being and beast; you forget that this is fantasy We Love This Bookshow more
