My review of the paperback edition of this book begins: "This book will break your feelings. Shatter them, then stomp on the resulting little pieces. And you’ll love every moment of it." And this is still true of the audiobook version. There were times where I listened with tears in my eyes. Everything about this book is beautiful, exquisite, and agonising, and the audiobook version is even more so because Khristine Hvam is such a skilled narrator. Having only read Dreams of Gods and Monsters once before, there were quite a few things I'd forgotten or misremembered from the book....

Her writing is indescribably mesmerising, somehow managing to capture hearts and imaginations and allow us to immerse ourselves fully into the world she has created.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a hard act to follow, and while I had hoped that Days of Blood and Starlight is just as good, I didn’t really expect it to be so. I was wrong, and probably have never been so happy about it! Lyrical, beautiful, heart-wrenching, frightening and,…
