Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Monday, July 7, 2014
Why I chose this book:
This book has been getting so much hype lately due to the release of the final installment. I always saw this book but never really bothered picking it up. The American cover didn’t really do it for me. Now if it was the British cover, I might have. I’m not going to lie I judge a book by its cover -we all do. But after hearing Addison non-stop fangirl over this beautiful read, I couldn’t not get a copy of my own.

Synopsis:
Around the world, black handprints 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 hairactually 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 beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery 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? (Goodreads)
