Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
Page Count: 420 Pages
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?
Why I Want This: How could anybody NOT want this? That cover is gorgeous, that synopsis is so mysterious and intriguing, and it has a rating of 4.42 with over 1800 ratings on Goodreads. WHAT!? I haven't read a single negative review about this book, I've heard way too many good things to NOT want this!! Seriously, I need it right now. *runs out to buy Daughter of Smoke and Bone* Curse you book buying ban!!!
