My Thoughts:Synopsis:Once upon a time, an angel and a devil held a wishbone between them.And its snap split the world in two.Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living – one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel – a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.This was not that world.
Can we please take a minute to appreciate the goddess that is Laini Taylor? I adore this woman and her mesmerising writing. If you haven’t read anything by her yet then you need to reevaluate your life choices. Okay, so maybe that was slightly harsh but seriously, I urge everyone to go and pick up this series!
