Title of Book 3 of DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE Trilogy Revealed

Just last week, we got the title reveal of Daughter of Smoke & Bone’s third book, which is Dreams of Gods & Monsters. Sounds appropriate and very much like a third book should be called. Laini speaks a little about the final book in the series below. Also after the jump, check out the fan-made book trailer of the second book, Days of Blood & Starlight, which was the winner of the book trailer contest that Laini had set up.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can fans expect from Dreams of Gods & Monsters?

LAINI TAYLOR: Dreams of Gods & Monsters picks up where Days of Blood & Starlight leaves off, and you can expect to see: seraphim in the human world (which will never be the same again), scientific excavation of “the pit”, enemy armies trying to fight side by side, the possibility of love rekindling, and … new threats that make Jael seem but a minor nuisance. At the barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of?

What inspired you to host a contest?

I was blown away by fan talent in the wake of Daughter of Smoke & Bone, when readers sent me extraordinary art and videos, and even a really good rap! With Days of Blood & Starlight coming out, I wanted to recognize that incredible pool of creativity. Days is a book about an otherworldly war, inborn hatred, rebel armies, and an unlikely spark of love that might change everything. There’s so much imagery to play with—chimaera and teeth, tattooed hands, a decrepit kasbah, Karou’s blue hair, seraph legions on the move — I couldn’t wait to see the visuals that people would come up with, and I’m thrilled with the results!

How did you choose?

First prize goes to the amazing entry by Christine Tyler, who created an entire resurrectionist’s workshop, along with a hauntingly lovely narration and chill-inducing ending. It’s gorgeous; I was agog the first time I saw it, and each time since. She captures the book’s balance of beauty and horror perfectly, and makes Karou’s workshop feel real. Thank you Christine! The humor prize goes to Lindsay Eager for imagining Zuzana’s resurrection of Mik. It’s adorable. Lastly, I was so impressed by the two Bitter Productions entries that I decided to add a second prize for their gorgeous and stark entry #2.
