review 1: This book is a breath of fresh air. I love how this world is so different than any other series! The only negative thing I could really say is that the author likes to skip around in time and characters a bit with the chapters. You have to be mentally prepared for that, but I see how it's necessary in the story telling and adds much more suspense that would otherwise be lost. Though this is YA, Laini's writing can get pretty graphic, morbid, and gory at times... And I love her for it!
review 2: 4.5Days of Blood and Starlight was quite an experience. Just as good, if not better than Daughter of Smoke and Bone and definitely has me asking how on earth can someone be as talented and creative with her imagination as Laini Taylor is. The beautiful prose continued t
... morehroughout this book and I continued to love Laini's writing but the first half did seem a little slow to me and I wasn't entirely pulled back into the story as quickly I'd maybe of liked to have been but after a while it did pick up and I was again immersed completely back into the world and found it hard to put down.The development of the characters and the plot was fantastic, everything is on an even wider and deeper scale and with the war in full force it added a heavier aspect to this story and a lot more brutality. The directions it went in were nothing I'd have anticipated and I love that. I love that I'm completely unaware of what is going to happen until it's happening.Characters. I do love the characters, Karou winning first place of course. She is so interestingly unique but more importantly strong and pretty bad ass, she went through a lot in this book and you see her developing a harder exterior as the book progresses. I really enjoy the vibe Zuzana and Mik bring to the story, they bring a lightness and humour and it's nice to see a few humans among these angels, demons, and monsters.BUT.... the thing is I don't feel any real connection to anybody really. I enjoy their characters a whole bunch, that's a given, and I root for them but for some reason I don't feel wholly connected to them which is quite sad and the reason I'm giving the book 4 stars, purely because that absence of really entirely connecting to the characters and it feels like a missing piece. Nonetheless, this such an extraordinary world and an amazing sequel. I'm looking forward to seeing how the series wraps up in Dreams of Gods and Monsters. less

The names were confusing and I just couldn't wait for Akiva and Karou to get back together.
Felt like coming home.Very, very beautiful language.
Lo mejor!
