I Can't Wait to Read: Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

Ever since I finished Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone, I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the sequel, Days of Blood & Starlight, to the point where now, when it is coming out TODAY, I almost can’t believe that it is actually happening. I’m so excited to read it that I don’t even want to read a summary; I just want to go into it completely fresh. So in lieu of a summary here, I will present a brief story.

This year I went to NYC Comic Con. In addition to all the comics publishers, artists, writers, collectors, figurine-sellers, etc., several book publishers had tables set up. And on one, I spied, next to some copies of Daughter of Smoke & Bone, a pile of thin volumes with similar looking but slightly more fiery cover art. “Is that…the sequel?” I gasped.

When Will the Next Book Come Out?

A few weeks ago, I finished Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan and, after I finished crying, I started panicking about how long I was going to have to wait to read the next installment in her Lynburn Legacy series. In tribute, I have put together a list of seven series installments (four novels, three graphic novels) whose endings made me howl with rage because I wanted more, More, MORE!
