Ould give anything to undo She loved the enemy and he betrayed her and a world suffered for itIn this stunning seuel 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 St What are we fighting for? What are we killing for? What do you see when you look into the future? Gone are the first book's spunkiness and lightheartedness and thankfully the annoying romance angle even though the deceiving and useless cover of this book may wrongly lead you thinking otherwise Instead the darkness and dirt and tiredness and betrayals and pain and weariness and hopelessness and violence and vengeance and grim determination set in and it is so much realized and gripping and touching than I hoped having lived up to the promise that the first book in the series was trying to set up Days of Blood and Starlight are filled with blood and not that much starlight after all This book does not shy away from pulling gut punches sometimes in a dirty way And I loved it A dream dirty and bruised is better than no dream at allIt's not often that a seuel is stronger than it predecessor but it's the case here Laini Taylor unflinchingly minimized the wonder and cuteness and romance and instead focused on creating a rich landscape devastated by war and characters wounded and scarred by it and yet caught in the relentless cycle of violence which breeds of the same In the cycle of slaughter reprisal begat reprisal forever Karou is hardly recognizable as the spunky blue haired girl full of vitality that we came to love She lost everything she held dear and permanent in her life and is barely a shell of her old self consumed by regret and shame and guilt which honestly she really does not deserve and the freuently annoying in its persistent cheerfullness presence of Zuzana is a painful reminder of how different Karou's life has become She is a shell shocked survivor and she tries to navigate her way through this new world in a daze relying on pain and wearing herself out The fire seems to be gone out of her for a while as she resigns herself to being a necessary albeit unwanted and resented player in the game a puppet to be tolerated until she can be replaced She does what she thinks needs to be done and there is nothing warm and fuzzy or comforting about it I have a soft spot for reading about those scarred by painful experiences and Karou wins my heart with her plight And yet she is determined and strong with steel in her backbone than I can imagine because who could have doubted that she will eventually find her way? Be your own place of safety she told herself straightening No crossbar in the world could protect her from what lay ahead and neither could a tiny knife ticked in her boot though there her tiny knife would most certainly remain and neither could a man not even Akiva She had to be her own strength complete unto herselfKarou resourceful strong level headed self sufficient you are still welcome to join my literary BFFs circle ReallyAnd on the other hand we have Akiva the hated at least by me romantic interest from the first book who and that's a tribute to Laini Taylor's skill I must say unexpectedly has enough character development for me to come to understand him and even grudgingly respect him Akiva genuinely is trying to set things right and not only because of his love for Karou but also it appears because of realizing how little cruelty and vengeance are actually worth He is allowed to develop on his own and not just as a part of a standard cutesy couple that he almost became with Karou many moons ago The big theme of this book the one that kept resonating with me was the futility of violence and the longing for compassion and mercy and peace The uselessness of adhering to the 'eye for an eye' approach to vengeance and violence is repeated over and over and over again Because as we have seen so many times in our real world the natural compulsion is to answer violence with of the same to wreck vengeance to make the other side feel your pain Many seemingly 'righteous' wars even recently have been started on this idea and the results of them have never been satisfying have never been worth it; instead only suffering and pain was dealt to those caught in the middle of the fighting Breaking something is always easier than building something new but it is rarely a sustainable solution to the problem It seems so devastatingly simple but yet so often overlooked so often trampled in the search of rewarding 'justice' which causes pain The vicious cycle isn't it? The futility of it is so obvious in literature like this book but why are we so blind to it in real life?I can easily see this book not having such a following as the first book in the series did because of the pronounced darkness of the tone and the decided lack of romance The tensions are about the power not about love The conflict is not because of feelings but because of grim reality of war and power struggle But this shift in tone and emphasis is what made me a fan of this book and is what makes me really look forward to the next one in the series Because sht is getting real believe me And I want to learn 45 stars without hesitation I will even round up to five given how much I enjoyed it So there My review of the first book in the series Daughter of Smoke and Bone is over here by the wayThe third and final book Dreams of Gods and Monsters is reviewed here
