So, whe I read Daugther of Smoke and Bone (first book on this series), I was like wow, It blow out my mind, it was fantastic, I don`t even have words to describe how amazed I was by this book, the story plot, the characters the descriptions everything were perfect, the only problem was that I wanted more, and now we have it, in Days of Blood and Starlight (book 2 in the series). I'm just in the first chapters of this book and I'm totally crazy about it, here ir the blurb.
 

Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is--and what she is. But with this knowledge comes anoher truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it.
 
In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.  
While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope. But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?
