Blood and Starlight - Kleenex Required

Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2)
By Laini Taylor

Rating: 4.3

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living—one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel—a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.

This was not that world.”

This book...was PURE AND UTTER TORTURE. 



Oh, and a bitter Thiago who needs to get a life and stop holding grudges. So, Akiva beat you in the non-official "Who's the hottest supernatural" contest - get over it!

How does it end? Here's a big fat clue...CLIFF. HANG. ER.

The line that killed me the most? It was:

Yeah? Okay," she said, staring up into the stars. "Let's see. You know how, at the end of Romeo and Juliet, Juliet wakes up in the crypt and Romeo's already dead? He thought she was dead so he killed himself right next to her?"
"Yeah. That was awesome." A pause, followed by "Ow," suggested elbow punctuation on the part of Mik.
Karou ignored it. "Well, imagine if she woke up and he was still alive, but..." She swallowed, waiting out a tremor in her voice. "But he had killed her whole family. And burned her city. And killed and enslaved her people.”

Grab a box of tissues. And prepare to be swept away.
