So I haven’t actually finished this book, I can’t. I really loved the first book in this series but from halfway through the second book the story became really dragged out but I decided to try and push through because I love the story so much. So I have given up for now (I might go back at a later stage and finish the book).

I have given the book a 3 star rating because the story is so great and unique with great characters, however this book dwells too much in the character’s thoughts instead of on the actual story which makes it very long and convoluted. If you do enjoy being deep inside the thoughts and emotions of all the characters then you will enjoy this series.

Overall I love the story and Laini Taylor’s writing style and I do hope to read the ending some day, for now I think I am going to try a few short fantasy novels:)


Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera’s rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.

When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited – not in love, but in a tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves.

But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters?
The New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion as – from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond – humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.
