Reviews | Days of Blood and Starlight; Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

As admirably ambitious as the series opener. But Books #2 and #3 of the Daughter of Smoke of Bone trilogy are let down by being structurally-flawed and overlong. 3/5 stars each.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone 2 and 3 by Laini Taylor

What it’s about: this is a tale of demons and angels, star-crossed lovers and war. I won’t say more to avoid spoilers, but you can get more a feel for the series from my review of book 1: Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

My take:

I want to start with praise for the ambition of Laini Taylor’s series. The author has aimed for an epic storyline. One which is founded upon an interesting inversion (and then complication) of traditional notions of good and evil. The idea is brilliant.
