Spoilers Ahoy ! For Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and when it comes to character deaths nothing compares to the death of Akiva’s brother, Hazael, in Days of Blood and Starlight. It was an emotional roller coaster because in the previous chapter his half sister Liraz has this in depth monologue about how she only knows where she belongs when she is between her two brothers.
We both enjoy Laini Taylor’s
So when Hazael dies in the next scene protecting her, she feels off balance and it affects her deeply. Taylor then dials the emotion to 11 because Akiva and Liraz carry their brother’s body (to the point of exhaustion) to another world so they can to try and get him resurrected but they can’t save him. AND THEN AND THEN they realize they can’t carry him back, but instead of leaving him they place his ashes in a water jug so he can be with them when they return to their world. THE FEELS !
