Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone)

Laini Taylor
Around 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 grown 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 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?

This book sucked me in from the very beginning. From the moment Karou was introduced I was hooked. I know we didn't know a lot about Brimstone in the beginning, but I felt attached to him and his friends. Normally I don't like books about angels and demons (Hush, Hush kind of ruined that for me), but this book was so well written it didn't feel like I was reading about angels and demons. The last few chapters for me were a bit confusing switching between two characters point of views from the past and present, but it did make sense in the end.
