    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.

    This book was worth the wait. I can't believe I am actually saying this, but it is such an excellent book. What a great second book in the trilogy. Usually the second book disappoints, and adds additional love interest, but to great satisfaction, this doesn't follow the usual. I thoroughly enjoyed and this book is as awesome as the first. If you enjoyed The Daughter of Smoke and Bone as much as I did, I absolutely feel in love with, you should most definitely enjoy this one too. Most of the characters are back, some sadly aren't, but as with the first book Khristine Hvam is wonderful and does a great job. And Laini Taylor is my new favorite everything :)

    Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane.

    As with the other three books, this is such a great listen. It is really fun and her character is so sassy and sarcastic, but still fun loving. The series is a must if this is your genre. Lorelei King, the narrator, is a blast and brings tons of laughs to the characters. You will enjoy this book.

    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.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Lou Diamond Phillips is fantastic, what a fabulous voice. Tom Clancy's characters are great, another great book, from a great writer. I can hardly wait for the next in this series, the ending leaves you wanting more.
