Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In the final book of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Taylor revives the strong interweaving of reality and fantasy that gave the first story such cross-genre appeal…The twists and turns of the dense plot deepen the complexity and the danger, leading to a potential apocalypse. Delivering less blood and gore than Days of Blood and Starlight and more yearning—for love, for peace, for a home—than both preceding books, the story is borne along by an increasingly strong undercurrent: the hope of overcoming embedded prejudices and instinctual hatreds to create a more harmonious world.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A mesmerizing conclusion to this popular fantasy trilogy will leave fans utterly satisfied…The narration is tight and skillful, giving listeners heart-stopping action as well as a deftly paced backstory. Taylor’s often-poetic prose is translated with incredible voice talent, balancing lyricism and brutality with masterful skill.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“In Taylor’s third and final installment in her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, Karou and Akiva’s dream of peace and a life together comes tantalizingly close, only to be repeatedly thwarted by their peoples’ separate and conflicting histories, both mystical and real…New revelations, characters, multiple love stories, and constant plot twists and suspense will not disappoint Taylor’s many fans.” Booklist
“Taylor takes up the tale where it left off in Days of Blood and Starlight…The author’s gift for poetically intense language is on display everywhere…Delicious…An ambitious, gorgeously edgy drama lit up by its coruscating characters and prose.” Kirkus Reviews
“With unparalleled elegance and skill, Taylor delivers a mesmerizing and explosive conclusion…Readers will revel in Taylor’s expert prose as they take one last tumultuous ride with Karou and her colorful band of friends and enemies…A wondrous triumph that meets and exceeds expectations with tremendous power and beauty.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
