"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW is . . .
Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
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.
Not a full summary, but I DON'T EVEN CARE.
If you remember, I really freaking loved Daughter of Smoke & Bone. It was dark, different, and stunningly beautiful. I am not typically a fan of the angel genre, considering just how many times I have seen the myths completely slaughtered, but Daughter of Smoke & Bone still managed to win me over. Between the gorgeous, lyrical, and occasionally whimsical writing of Laini Taylor and the crazy amounts of imagination and originality stuffed between those pages, it's one of my Top 10 favorites of all time.
So of course "excited" doesn't accurately describe how I feel about this sequel.
It doesn't have a final cover. It doesn't have a full summary. I know next-to-nothing about it. I don't care. I need this book to be mine, sooner rather than later.
