"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." "" 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. 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?

* "The impossible choices each character faces compel readers to consider the fission when ethics slam into power, creating a chain reaction of pain and grim, uncertain outcomes that must be worked through even if chances for hope on the other side are slim. Of course, [readers will be left] in breathless anticipation for the next installment, but the intensity of this middle piece is a satisfying feast all on its own." ""BCCB," starred review""
