Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

“Errand requiring immediate attention.  Come.”

The note was on vellum, pierced by the talons of the almost-crow that delivered it.  Karou read the message.  “He never says please”, she sighed, but she gathered up her things.

When Brimstone called, she always came.

In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance.  On the one hand, she’s a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family.  Raised half in our world, half in ‘Elsewhere’, she has never understood Brimstone’s dark work – buying teeth from hunters and murderers – nor how she came into his keeping.  She is a secret even to herself, plagued by the sensation that she isn’t whole.

Now the doors to Elsewhere are closing, and Karou must choose between the safety of her human life and the dangers of a war-ravaged world that may hold the answers she has always sought.

Peer & Press Reviews

Daughter of Smoke and Bone is that rare beast: a novel that takes the familiar and makes it appear startling and new.  Taylor has embraced the mythology of angels and reworked it in an extraordinary form, so that by the end of this lyrical, haunting book, I wanted to believe in the existence of these violent, tormented beings.  I can hardly wait for the next installment.

John Connolly, author of The Chronicles of the Invaders series

For once the frenzy over a teen novel is justified.  Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is one of those books that blots out reality, so consumed do you become in its fantasy world of chimeras and angels… inevitably there is an epic romance but Taylor is a talented writer; this is aeons apart from the usual angels and werewolves dross.
