lgesin’s review of Days of Blood and Starlight

I reviewed the first book in this series, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, a few weeks ago, and once again thank daysofblood@JensAnsbach for recommending this amazing fantasy series.  The second book, Days of Blood and Starlight, reminds me of the second installment of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series: the first half is slow but builds a bridge between the first and third books, and the second half gains momentum to end with a cliff hanger that makes the reader impatient for the final book.  I have mixed feelings about this move to trilogies in both the young adult and adult arenas.  While I don’t believe that authors set out to write trilogies to pad their royalties, I highly suspect that publishers encourage this format to make as much profit from a storyline as possible.
