Laini Taylor's new book!

I'm so excited! The title for the third book in Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy has just been released. There's no cover art yet, but there is this teaser:




For those of you who haven't started this series, now is as good a time as any! The first book in the series, Daughter of Smoke, follows the story of the blue-haired girl Karou and how not all is what it seems in her world. The second book is Days of Blood and Starlight, and is much darker but also much more complex and magical. If you enjoy stories that include magical creatures (seraphim and chimaera, in this case), humor (Zuzanna!), lots of love and friendship, war in all its horrific glory, betrayals, mysteries about the past, romance, and  above all utterly gorgeous writing, you will love this series. There is so much complexity to this world and to these characters, and the detail and care with which Laini Taylor has created this story blows me away.

Here is what the author has to say about the new book (spoilers for the end of Days of Blood and Starlight, for those of you who haven't read it yet):

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can fans expect from Dreams of Gods & Monsters?
LAINI TAYLOR: Dreams of Gods & Monsters picks up where Days of Blood & Starlight leaves off, and you can expect to see: seraphim in the human world (which will never be the same again), scientific excavation of “the pit”, enemy armies trying to fight side by side, the possibility of love rekindling, and … new threats that make Jael seem but a minor nuisance. At the barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of?
