Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Days of Blood & Starlight - Laini Taylor Laini Taylor has a slightly annoying habit of leaving cliffhangers at the end of 90% of her chapters, and making you wait at least 2-3 chapters to find out what happens next - a quality that frustrated me to no end in Daughter of Smoke and Bone. This plot device is lessened somewhat, and put to better use in this book, making for a dark and beautiful story about survival, choices and hope.
