Star Rating: 5
It had been a while since I’d read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, when I picked this up for my Astronomy prompt for the Magical Readathon back in April but I surprised myself by remembering most of what happened, before picking up the second book.
Reading Days of Blood and Starlight, I fell back in love with the characters I’d met in the first book, like Karou, Akiva, Zuzana, Mik and met a few new faces that I liked. There were definitely characters that I still loathed, or new characters that I took an instant dislike to, but I think that just made the novel all the more entertaining for me. The world building, as in the first book, was exceptional; I easily imagined myself in the world Laini has created, her descriptive writing style allowing me to completely re-immerse myself into her world.
I feel like there was a lot more action in this than the first book, which I loved and had me on the very edge of my seat throughout. I also felt all the emotions reading this, from happiness and anger, to joy and pain.
Absolutely loved this second book in the trilogy, I can’t wait to get the last one….but also scared, because I don’t want it to end! *crying emoji*.

P.S. You may notice in this and following review posts, that I no longer use my COWWT system. This is because I recently started to feel as though it was restricting me in writing my reviews, and the way I was reviewing before felt far more free for me, so I am reverting back to that method in the future.
