Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) By Laini Taylor



Daughter of Smoke and Bone (D of S &Bone one)By Laini TaylorAround 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 grown 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?
OMG, Great debut book!!! (Sorry, I will NOT review this book, BECAUSE, I might not do this book justice!) Different, New age, Complicated, Promising, Heart wrenching!!!!
Brilliant… Amazing! And Hopeful… I Loved Loved it! Laini Taylor is a great writer! I proclaim thee Best BOOK of 2011! More Please!

Once upon a time,
an angel and a devil fell in love.
It did not end well.

Once upon a time,
a little girl was raised by monsters.
But angels burned the doorways to their world,
and she was all alone.

Once upon a time,
an angel lay dying in the mist.
And a devil knelt over him and smiled.

Once upon a time,
There were two moons, who were sisters.
Nitid was the goddess of tears and life,
and the sky was hers.
No one worshipped Ellai but secret lovers.

All I can say is WOW.... This book is one of a kind, great non stop page turning read. I had found myself laying awake thinking of Brimstone and his teeth. The clues are there but still you can't seem to peice it together till the end. Thrilling and excting. There are no good and bad but only people fighhting for their rightfull cause. Our main characters victims to the system.  No matter what I say you will never get it iunless you read it yoursdelf. Young Karou is not your typicall high school teenager. for one she was raised by Chimera, she has a secret past, and she collects teeth.Once upon a time,a little girl was raised by monsters.But angels burned the doorways to their world,and she was all alone. Old Akiva, is on a mission- REVENGE and he is determined to rid the world of the insolent Chimera. But it was not always so- Once upon a time,an angel and a devil fell in love.It did not end well.
