Return to Smoke & Bone

Portland author Laini Taylor this week unveiled the title of the sequel to her wonderful fantasy novel, DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE.

As a fan of Taylor’s writing, this is sanguine news for me. Remember, please, that “sanguine” means both “hopeful” and “bloody.” I think that pretty much sums up my emotions about her 2011 novel.

Book 2 in this lovely and violent trilogy, to be released later this year, will be DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT.

A mock-up for Book 2 in Laini Taylor's fantasy trilogy

If you haven’t read the story of Karou, the part-time art student in Prague and full-time messenger for a family of demons, go do so right away. The novel is romantic and lush and dangerous and stunning.
