Book Review: Daughter Of Smoke And Bone By Laini Taylor





Name: Daughter Of Smoke and Bone
Author: Laini Taylor
Publisher: Hodder Books
UK Release date: September 2011

Summary: 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.

Review: Monsters, Angels, blood, Gore, excitement, scary and wonderful. These are just some of the words I use to describe this captivating novel.

Never have I come across anything like this. Not even close. I love when I get a new book that I can't compare to any other and this novel is one of them. A jump out of your seat exciting read that I couldn't put down. The way Laini has described Prague is so beautiful and I loved how she described other cities mentioned in the book. It truly felt like you were in there, seeing what Karou sees.

The characters are so captivating in this novel. They are NOT at all what you expect their not exactly human but my gosh you do fall in love with them quickly. I will say that if you love Brave, Loving, scary, courageous characters then this is the story for you. Zuzanna and Karous relationship is so awesome. Funny moments, Touching moments and hopefully moments. These two best friends are great.

The plot is so original. Karou set on errands to retrieve teeth for her "family" but things happen and nothing goes to plan. You may think "Huh" but this story totally works and is so original! Akiva and Karou's relationship is so touching. If you love Sexual tension, atmospheric, love, aggression, heartbreaking and funny moments? These two characters are for you!

If your an artist or appreciate artistic expression I'm sure you will want to be in Karous world. Even if your not? You will want to be. Just when you knew what was going to happen BAM it changes. All your theories out the window with a mind blowing shocking twist. Daughter of Smoke and Bone will snatch you away into a world that will have you captivated from beginning to end.
