Before I begin my review I would first like to say that I won this book from The Ravenous Reader over at Lushbudgetproduction.com, and let me tell you, it may be one of the new editions to my shelf, but it is now one of my most valuable. I was on the edge through out this whole book, and a few times asked myself (Internally of course, because externally I'd just look like a crazy person); "What is she? who is she? What is he to her?" AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I WANNA KNOW!!!!!!!!!!! but alas, the only way to know is to read the book in it's entirety, Miss Laini gives you tid bits, but gives none of the meat away...and me like it that way :)
AROUND THE WORLD, black hand prints 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 otherworldly war.
Review:It's been a long time since I've read a story with so many twists and turns, and unpredictable plots unfolding before my eyes. Daughter Of Smoke & Bone was refreshing. It tantalized my curiosities, and set my insides on fire with the love story portrayed within. I like that Miss Laini gave you little hints as to who this girl really was, but even with those hints and clues, you still couldn't have guessed, or the back story for that matter. This world in which Karou lives in, is more questions than answers, and as the reader, you're unfolding these mysteries along with her. Daughter Of Smoke & Bone left me feeling like a fat kid sitting in front of a plate of crumbs begging for more. (I like using food to describe my emotions, because aside from reading, food is my next favorite thing.) I can't wait for the next book in the series to be released...I will probably be first in line at the book store :)
