@lainitaylor visits Powell's for 'Days of Blood & Starlight' release 6 Nov

Laini Taylor started her tour off at Powell's in Beaverton.  We were delighted to see her!

Here is some information about her newest book 'Days of Blood & Starlight' which is the second book in her 'Daughter of Smoke & Bone' trilogy.

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 anoher 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?

 Laini read from 'Days of Blood & Starlight', showed us some pieces from the new jewelry line that goes along with the trilogy and answered questions for her readers.  Because I was enjoying her reading and laughing at the answers to the great questions of other readers I have no notes.  So you will have to take it from that you really should just READ THE SERIES!  Laini is awesome and easy to find on Twitter and her Website.

The jewelry line can be found Here. There are 22 pieces altogether and they are beautiful.  Personally I would love a Wishbone Necklace in silver.  The pieces come in silver, bronze, and brass.  Check out some photos below of a few pieces of her jewelry.

Laini Taylor is donating all of the monies she receives for the entire Jewelry Collection on sales through January 31, 2013 including Holiday Sales, to the Red Cross for the Hurricane Sandy Relief fund.
