Book Review + Haiku: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Blue Karou wishes

but teeth dim with blood cannot

knit an exiled soul.

 

THANK the Gods. This is the book I was hoping to find when I picked up the dismal City of Bones a couple weeks ago.

So imaginative, so lush, well-written, and not hurried along from one overblown scene to the next. If you like good magical stories, YA lit, and/or urban fantasy/ paranormal stuff and haven’t read this, GO GET IT now. I’m still reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone and can’t wait to see where this tale flies… Also, the narrator for the audiobook is incredible and a new favorite.

Notes Upon Finishing: What a beautiful heartbreak. And if I had a tooth to wish on, I’d wish to be able to write like Laini Taylor.
