Daughter of Smoke & Bone Epilogue

By Laini Taylor


  • Karou flies toward the portal in the sky, not with Akiva, but with Razgut.
  • She admits that she hadn't been able to kill Akiva, that murderous dude. Even though part of her really wanted to.
  • As she passes through the portal, she thinks, "Under the misery, there was hope. […] This was not the end" (Epilogue.10, Epilogue.12).
  • And that's that. For this book.
  • Seriously? What is this, The Matrix: Reloaded ? Guess we'll have to dig up a copy of Days of Blood and Starlight and find out what happens next.
