Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Author: Laini Taylor
Once upon a time, an angel and devil fell in love. It did not end well.
Around the world black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who crept through a slit in the sky.
In a 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 otherworldly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbook with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on "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's one question that haunts her that she is 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?
First I thought she was his daughter and then bam she wasn't... I don't know what to think about this book. I read it for the book club but I don't think I liked it... well the end I didn't like!
