This review was originally posted on Once Upon a Chapter



Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is one of those books that everyone claims is one of the best books in the universe. And it is. What they don't tell you is that it takes time to appreciate it. What they don't tell you is that it is so confusing until all of a sudden it's not anymore.

Karou is living the life that most older teenage girls would love. She's got her own apartment, attends art school, has an amazing best friend, and an endless supply of small wishes. I really don't want to get into too much of the plot because I think it's more valuable for you to discover it all for yourself.

What I do want to discuss is Taylor's amazing skill as a wordsmith. She blends reality and fantasy so well, not only do you truly want to believe it, if you close your eyes, you can almost hear Brimstone's deep voice. You can certainly feel all of the emotions running through Karou and Akiva. I've never had more clear visions of a foreign country than I have Prague. It sounds beautiful!

I am very much excited to continue reading this series! ( )

With her blue hair, imaginative stories and mysterious nature, Karou was not your average girl. When asked she would tell you she was raised by monsters, that her hair was blue because she wished it so, and that when she disappeared it was simply to run errands. Of cause no one really believed in monsters, wishes or simple errands that left behind bruises and bullet wounds. It was all just a part of her creative imagination. Only it wasn't her imagination, the monsters were real, and they were the only family she had ever known.

Karou was living two lives, that of an imaginative, art student living in the human world and that of an errand girl to a monster who deals in wishes and who was brought up Elsewhere. However when an ancient enemy returns and the connection to Elsewhere is lost as the doorways become closed off to her leaving her trapped in the human world, Karou is left helpless and alone. Being human it is where she belongs, however Elsewhere is the only home she has ever known, her only family is there and with no way left through, she can only hope she will see them again.

Daughter Of Smoke And Bone weaves you through the back streets and ally ways of some of the worlds most famous cities in search for teeth, truth and the doorway to another world. A highly imaginative and colourful beginning to a series full of art, languages, monsters, angels and a war that has raged for centuries with no end in sight. Despite this there is love, hope, the dream of peace and a new way to live. A uniquely magical story that is intelligent, funny, revealing and all together heartbreaking. ( )

“Once upon a time, a little girl was raised by monsters.
But angels burned the doorways to their world, and she was all alone.”


As always my reviews are based off of my true and honest opinion and I do my best to keep all reviews spoiler free.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone is the first book of a trilogy. Its about Karou, a girl with monsters for family and tattoos on her hands, and Akiva, an angel with a sad past. They meet, they fight, but something draws them to each other. Soon Karou's world changes, she finds herself cut off from those that she has always known, and loved. She sets out to find a way back to them, and finds out more about herself then she ever could have thought possible, and she learns of her own, and Akiva's past.
This book was amazing. It had me from the first chapter, and just got better and better with every page. What started out a good book, turned into an AMAZING book. I'm loving everything about it. It made me smile and blush and it made me cry. Yes, it made me cry and cry more than once. I was an emotion wreck throughout this book.

It keeps you guessing but explains everything before the books end. Leaving you feeling like you went for an amazing ride and finished with satisified but very emotional feeling at the end. If I had to sum up this book in one word it would be WOW!!!!

Inside cover: "From master storyteller and National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor comes a sweeping and grogeously written modern fantasy about a forbidden love, an ancient and epic battle, and hope for a world remade." I was waffling about a four or five, but the message of hope in this book carried the day.

Lonely Karou is a human girl, attending university in Prague, studying art; however, she is drawn away by the four chimera, who raised her, to run errands for her foster father, Brimstone. She travels through portals to far away cites and is rewarded with small wishes (scuppies.) During one of those travels she is met by an angel (Aviva), who tries to destroy her as an archenemy, but cannot do so. As the story progresses, the reason becomes quite clear: he loves her. Unfortunately, Karou is determined to find her family, and Aviva and his half siblings have sealed all the portals with fire. Aviva eventually figures out that Karou is the reincarnation of someone very dear to him. Good ending, well written, lovely descriptions of Prague (you will want to go see for yourself.) I especially liked Taylor's ability to hang the end of a chapter so you started the next one to see the resolution. ( )

Humanity, perhaps, that quality of benevolence that humans have, without irony, named after themselves.
She tastes like nectar and salt. Nectar and salt and apples. Pollen and stars and hinges. She tastes like fairy tales. Swan maidens at midnight. Cream on the tip of a fox's tongue. She tastes like hope.
Wishes are false. Hope is true. Hope makes it own magic.
If it's not chocolate, it's not breakfast.
Evanescence was not, in itself, a grim fate. It was the way of things, to be unmade; it happened in natural death, every day.
