I Love This Book!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages—not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

 My rating:

One of the best books I've ever read! I am so dying to read the next book I can hardly contain myself. I miss Karou and Akiva, Zuzanna and Izîl already! They are my favorite characters.

Check out my links and updates here:

page 256 At this point Akiva knows who Karou is but he couldn't convey what he knew about her because if his step-brother and sister found out they wouldn't understand . They were on the bridge. Onlookers and bypassers stood gawking at the angel spectacle, Karou and Akiva.

by AngelLeila
Akiva: When he saw the chimaera girl again, he would be able to tell her that he had not used the life she had given him to kill any more of her kindred.
 Akiva: "Your soul sings to mine. My soul is yours, and it always will be, in any world. No matter what happens " "I need you to remember that I love you."

 She is Madrigal Kirin, who dared imagine a new way of living.

Karou: It was what she had always wanted and thought that she'd found: someone who was for her, as she was for him, whose blood and butterflies sang to hers and answered them, note for note.

  1. I loved this book as well! I actually listened to it on audiobook, and the words and names that she chose to use are even better when you listen to them. :)


Thanks for visiting.
