Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Title:  Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Author: Laini Taylor

“She had been innocent once, a little girl playing with feathers on the floor of a devil’s lair.”


“This was her life: magic and shame and secrets and teeth and a deep, nagging hollow at the center of herself where something was most certainly missing.”


This book is my favourite fantasy in YA. It is amazing, so beautifully written and crafted. Love it. I know its a bit of an oldy now, but it is honestly so good.

Book Blurb…

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 hair  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?

Although I’m not reading this book right now, I frequently pick it up and toss through the pages because it inspires me to write.

If you’re a reader and a writer come check out my weekly writing meme called My Muse Monday, where like-minded writers can share how the writing week has gone for them.

Tell me, what are you reading right now?

  1. Wow, those are really great teasers. I own the trilogy but have yet to read them. I swear, I feel like the last person alive that hasn’t read the series. I tend to stick to contemporaries but the rave reviews convinced me to buy all 3 books. My teasers are here: http://bit.ly/1fkO4Ft

    • What is really awesome about this one is that when it starts off it kind of feels like a contemporary, and it eases you into the fantasy elements. Gosh it is such a beautiful book, it really is one my favorites. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
