Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
Goodreads Book Description: 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.
Expected Publication: November 6, 2012
Why I am Excited: Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of the most unique books I have ever read. The characters, imagery, background and world building are just amazing, and I can't wait to continue Karou's journey in this next installment.
Why I Am Worried: It's hard to live up to such a terrific first book in a trilogy, especially when part of the reason it was so amazing was because it was so different than anything else I've read. That said, there are so many questions swirling in my head, and I know that Taylor has a lot more tricks up her sleeve!
