    What are we fighting for What are we killing for What do you see when you look into the future Gone are the first book's spunkiness and lightheartedness and thankfully the annoying romance angle even though the deceiving and useless cover of this book may wrongly lead you thinking otherwise Instead the darkness

    If there's one thing that makes my blood boil and my skin ripple with creepy crawlies it's a story that disrespects real suffering For me this was one of those Even though it started off really well the second ha

review Days of Blood Starlight

Days of Blood Starlight

R truth she would give anything to undo She loved the enemy and he betrayed her and a world suffered for itIn this stunning seuel 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 B Dead souls dream only of death Small dreams for small men It is life that expands to fill worlds Life is your master or death is But of course my favourite instalment in the DOSAB trilogy has the honour of being my 50th Goodreads review PS How did this happen I only began reviewing books in June How did I manage to review 50 books in less than 5 months I am shookethWhere to begin Where to BEGIN Now that I m finally reviewing arguably as it changes on a day to day basis my favourite book of all time there is so much to discuss I don t think that I need to reiterate the beauty that is Laini Taylor s breath taking prose as I gushed about it nonstop during my review for the previous book This is a dark and brutal war story this time around in contrast with the magical whimsy of the first instalment I even watched an interview once with Laini Taylor where she explicitly stated that she included the light and funny moments with Zuzana and Mik because if she hadn t she risked making this book too dark and depressing which I definitely agree was a smart move Zuzana s prominent role and witty banter provided much needed levity in this novel which had such dark themes from war to death to prejudiceand even rape I also know that I m not alone in considering Zuzana to be one of my favourite characters in not only this trilogy but in YA fantasy itself 3 Let s see You know how at the end of Romeo and Juliet Juliet wakes up in the crypt and Romeo s already dead He thought she was dead so he killed himself right next to her Well imagine if she woke up and he was still alive but She swallowed waiting out a tremor in her voice But he had killed her whole family And burned her city And killed and enslaved her people Unfortunately for me my ship s romantic moments were essentially non existent in this book as wellmostly because of the revelations that came to pass at the end of the first instalment Akiva is with his seraphim brethren at their camp as they formulate their next plan for attack whilst Karou is trying to salvage what little is left of the chimaera race by undertaking Brimstone s past responsibilities as the resurrectionist Now there is a void of resentment guilt disappointment and betrayal separating the two of them in addition to a complete lack of communication As always in literary relationships for some reason many problems could be easily resolved if they actually CONVERSED with one another Despite my disappointment as a result of the lack of swoon worthy moments I do not feel as if the absence of romantic developments hindered this novel at all If anything I think that it added to the intensity of the plot Since there is a war going on around them and their loved ones are dropping like flies Akiva and Karou have important things to worry about Their plates are pretty full at the moment and they don t need to add relationship troubles into the mix Their love lives aren t the prioritythe survival of their respective races IS Thus it only makes sense that romance has taken a backseat here I still adamantly and desperately ship them though 3There are spoilers for Daughter of Smoke and Bone NOT Days of Blood and Starlight belowDays of Blood and Starlight begins close to where Daughter of Smoke and Bone endsAs we now know Karou was once a chimaera by the name of Madrigal in a previous life She had rescued Akiva who was badly wounded from battle after which he seeks her out in order to thank her for saving his life and to promise to never take another life of one of her kind LOL Despite him being seraphim and her being chimaera against all odds they fell in love and dreamt of a world devoid of war and strife When the affair was discovered by Madrgial s covetous foster sister Chiro grrr they were punished for their transgression Akiva was brutally tortured by the chimaera and Thiago the White Wolf who also personally had Madrigal beheaded Finally happy that they are re united at last having found each other in another life and thus proving that their love transcended death Karou with Madrigal s memories inside her now thinks that she can be with her love That is until Akiva confesses to killing the only family that she had ever known while mourning for her which includes Brimstone Issa Twiga and Yasri who raised and protected her for her entire life Heartbroken Karou leaves Akiva in Prague and heads through a portal to Eretz with the Fallen angel RazgutNow in Days of Blood and Starlight Karou has assumed Brimstone s role by resurrecting chimaera for Thiago Thiago is leading what remains of the chimaera race by sending them on missions to protect the chimaera villages from being invaded by the seraphim Or at least that s what Thiago tells Karou anywayZiri the last remaining member of Karou s Kirin tribe returns severely injured from one of Thiago s attack and destroy missions against the seraphim He confides in Karou that Thiago s plans are anything but peaceful and she ultimately realises that Thiago doesn t want to need her any If she s not careful her days are numbered while she lives under Thiago s ever watchful and resentful eye This was supposed to be another buddy read with Laura the Explorer ButI got excited and accidentally left her behind in the dust Oops Sorry P
