Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. I’m so excited about this week’s pick I can hardly stop myself from screaming! Here it is in all its beautiful glory:
The sequel to one of my favorite books of 2011, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, has finally been given a release date and a cover reveal. Thanks to EW’s Shelf Life for the information. Isn’t it beautiful? I couldn’t find much about the story, but here is the short description from Goodreads:
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.”
I can’t wait to read this book. Laini Taylor is an exquisite and inventive writer, two traits that I find irresistible. If you’re waiting on Days of Blood & Starlight too, please let me know!
