I love Laini Taylor. Seriously, guilty of some major fangirl moments. So I was waiting for this book with hot anticipation. After Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I was hooked.
Taylor takes us back to Karou and Akiva's haunting story in this sequel, which is, as the title suggests, filled with conflict. I saw one person mention on Twitter that it was more blood than starlight, and I'd have to agree. Still, the world is magnificent, the characters are sparkling, and it's a wonderful story to sink your teeth into.
Be warned, however: gone are the warm fuzzies from Smoke and Bone. Be prepared to be shocked in many ways, but I think you'll enjoy this elegant novel!
Whew. I did it! One hundred books this year!! I think I'll take a blog break now...see you in 2013!
What books do I need to read next year? Help me build my TBR list back up!
