Daughter of Smoke & Bone Laini Taylor Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
In a nation on the brink of war, a young student's star-crossed love begins to bloom in the first book of the New York Times bestselling epic fantasy trilogy by award-winning author 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 have grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly 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?

User reviews about this book
The book was wasn’t terrible, but the “cliffhanger” ending was ridiculous. There’s countless ways to lead into a sequel, and creating false drama is the worst of them. The author was good at world building....those were the most interesting parts of the book. I got this on sale for two dollars and I want my money back!! 😇😈
I’m in love first book to make me cry in a long time
When I got this book I was hesitant to start reading it the cover and title look fake deep and kinda cheesy but after I read the first few pages I couldn’t put it down I was in tears at the end
Hooked right from the start. Loved every minute of this series.
Overhyped... purple prose!
Went into this thinking that it was going to be epic since it was so overhyped and people raved about the writing style.I am one of the very few that did not like this book.Was it nicely written? Yes but too flowery.The author seemed like she was more preoccupied with her writing style, overly describing everything single emotion, background, confusing the readers to annoyance on what the heck was going on and dragging on and on a scene etc.. than focusing on the actual plot. At the end I had no emotional attachment to any of the characters. I'm all about romance and I so badly wanted to love Akiva and Kaoru, but just really didn't care what happened to them. I found myself screaming chapter after chapter-Just get to the point! A good book can be written without all the flowery, fanciful descriptions! It's unnecessary.
Highly recommend this book!
I will admit that I'm not that interested in "Angel stories" (read the first three books of "Mortal Instruments" and wasn't the biggest fan) but I adored this book. It's such a simple story that is conveyed beautifully. One of the easiest five stars I've ever given!
I could not put the book down! The characters and overall feeling of the book sucked me in. I connected with all the characters and my feelings would change drastically. This is one of the best books I have read!
The tone, the voice, the characteristics of each character, everything was unprofessional. I was disappointed to be completely honest. I would not recommend this book.
This book was amazing 5 stars is not enough
Surprisingly good for such an unknown book. Recommended to me by a teacher, I was hooked from page 1.
Engaging/ loved it, get it!!!
Such a creative story with characters that become more fascinating as you read. Original, couldn't put it down as the mystery developed deeper as to the characters actual purpose & history. Second book fantastic, unable to quit reading!
