    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.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    What did you love best about Poison Princess?

    The new story line, apocalypse idea isn't new but the twists and paranormal anomalies are.


    What other book might you compare Poison Princess to and why?

    Not a lot to compare to... has a little hunger game feel, last one standing thing going on, but it has a pretty original feeling, for me at least.

    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

    I loved this book! Not at all what I was expecting and the description, cover and title doesn't do it justice! I adored Laini's writing and found it poetic and peaceful, though the plot was anything but.

    I try try to never make my reviews like a blurb on the book, just the nitty gritty 411 on the book, so with that being said, READ THIS.
    The main character is easy to follow and she has the perfect amount of strength and vulnerability to make her the perfect heroin, but my favorite character is her best friend Zuzana. All the characters were amazing though and the love story was perfect, and the ending, omg can you say cliff hanger! So glad I had the second one ready to go :)

    This is a story filled with everything, all emotions. You want a fun read with plenty of laugh out loud moments? Then read this! You want a book with a little morbidity and plenty of action and adventure? Then read this! You want a book filled with poetic descriptions that read like silk? Then READ THE BOOK! Seriously just try it!

    A warning the first couple chapters you feel like you are missing parts or a previous book, but just stick with it everything unfolds perfectly!

    READ THIS BOOK! LOVE IT!!

    Petite though she may be, Zuzana is not known for timidity. Her best friend, Karou, calls her "rabid fairy," her "voodoo eyes" are said to freeze blood, and even her older brother fears her wrath. But when it comes to the simple matter of talking to Mik, or "Violin Boy," her courage deserts her. Now, enough is enough. Zuzana is determined to meet him, and she has a fistful of magic and a plan. It's a wonderfully elaborate treasure hunt of a plan that will take Mik all over Prague on a cold winter's night before finally leading him to the treasure: herself!

    What did you love best about Night of Cake & Puppets?

    I love the story! It's so sweet and funny, honestly I saw the cover and title and though "hmmm, no thanks" after a couple days I ended up caving out of boredom and loved it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love story and Micks narrator was awesome and a great addition!


    What does Khristine Hvam and Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Everything! The writig is still poetic but the narrators are what, for me, made it so addictive. They drew me in and made it flow!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it!

    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.
