Inky's Choice: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living - one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or armies or children ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.
Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.
This was not that world.
5 reasons to read Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (I desperately tried to cut myself off at 5, I promise):
1. It is the second book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bones trilogy
2. Daughter of Smoke and Bones made it on to our Silver Inky Shortlist.
3. It has a cool acronym: DoBaS ! Very different from the Daughter of Smoke and Bones acronym, which was DoSaB. I know!
5. The covers! So many pretty pretty covers!
And because I haven't put a number next to it, it totally doesn't count (right?): there is a Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy jewellery store. YES YOU CAN BUY DoSaB INSPIRED JEWLERY! Happy days!!!!
