Cover Lust: Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

Cover Lust is something that I do every week where I feature a book cover that I absolutely love!

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.

This is not that world.

Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is—and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it.

In this stunning sequel 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 & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.

While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope.

But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?

 Why did I pick this cover? 
Out of all the Daughter of Smoke & Bone books, this one has my favorite cover. I love the pops of red among the gray scale! I love the detail on the patches! Also, this cover just doesn't look as awkward as the others in the series, at least to me.
 What are your thoughts? Tell me in the comments!


  1. Hi Jessica! Thank you so much for sharing my covers on your blog today! I am very excited to share these with the world, and can't wait for all three of these books to be released by the end of next month. How exciting! <3 Also, all of the books will be out BEFORE Winter of 2016. The 5th and final novel, BIRTHRIGHT, will release April 19th 2016. Woot!

  2. I love this cover! I am a sucker for masks, I think that they just look so cool! So, this series defiantly has some of my favorite covers. :)
