Today Laini Taylor announced the title of the sequel to her fantastic novel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone:

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Days of Blood and Starlight – I love it! It is supposed to be published in the fall of this year, meaning I now have a new very highly anticipated book of 2012 to look forward to. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was one of my very favorite novels of 2011 (review).

There is a description for it that is also wonderful:


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.

It sounds lovely. I cannot wait – Laini Taylor is one of those authors I just can’t recommend enough. Her writing is gorgeous, and her stories are both creative and full of heart.
