The blog for books and movies

tumblr_nr6rlhia261rkciaro1_1280Around 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 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 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?

Comments on: "Daughter of smoke and bone – Laini Taylor" (2)

  1. I’ve just recently started reading Daughter of smoke and bone and it’s been pretty interesting. There aren’t many people who have read this book, let alone heard of it. So I’m hoping to spread it around or get people to notice the author. At the start I found the book hard to connect with and I really wanted to put it down and not contain reading. But I gave it a shot and eventually found a way to connect with the characters and understand the storyline. The main character Karou, has many qualities. I like how she’s able to speak many languages. She is shown to be humorous, and also curious and somewhat rebellious. I wish we knew much more about her past or background, but hopefully she does at some time (as i haven’t finished the book yet). Overall I actually like the book, for now I would rate it a 6/10. But hopefully when I finish I could bump it up.
