    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.

    Story

    The audio version of this story was extremely hard for me to follow and "get into." I think it would have helped if I'd been able to read the beginning, and then listen from there. The performance was very good, though.

    At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    Story

    First, the story itself was a disappointment; it was very lightweight and not only lacked any depth, but I didn't relate to the characters at all either.

    Second, the writer kept using the same phrases over and over again- for example, the heroine felt "completely slayed" FAR too often. (And while I appreciated the use of the word once...mainly because I never thought of it as a word before...and apparently neither does anyone else since this program keeps trying to auto-correct it...one time was enough.)

    Third -- and this may be because of the girl reading the story -- she sounded far too whiney and weak ALL THE TIME. Seriously, she's a downer. (I soon wanted to punch her as much as she wanted to punch everyone else who she felt wronged her...another frustrating aspect of the story.) The reader wasn't bad--actually she's really good--but she needs to lose the consistently whiney and plain tones. (Sorry but I couldn't think of a better word.)

    All in all, I was not as enamored with this story as the other readers apparently were.
    Far from it, actually.
