Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Daughter of Smoke & 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?

The #2ndBookOf2021 for #February was the first book of the DOSAB trilogy. I DNFed this a few years ago, but I guess it just wasn‘t the time for it coz when I picked it back up this year I absolutely loved it! A mix of magical realism, fantasy & horror, I ended up inhaling the entire series plus the novella A Night Of Cake & Puppets. Highly recommend. #12BooksOf2021

Andrew65 Great choice. 5mo
julesG 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 One of my favourites. I'm reading the first book with my daughter right now. 5mo

BTW, the 'naked' book is a stunner, too.

GingerAntics Oh the naked book is gorgeous!!! 💙💙💙 5mo
julesG @GingerAntics It is. So is book 2 of the trilogy. Unfortunately the German publisher never bothered to have a hardcover edition printed for the third book. 😢😢😢 Shame. 5mo
GingerAntics @julesG seriously?! That‘s so weird. Here, you have to wait for like a year to get a paperback version of a book. German publishers don‘t always make hardcover editions at all?! 5mo
julesG @GingerAntics Guess book 1 and 2 did not reach a certain sales quota, so they decided to make book 3 a PB. But worse things have happened, some trilogies never got a translation for the final book (a MG series my son was reading fizzled out after the third book), or only years later (e.g. the third book in the Illuminae Files series was published in 2018, readers had to literally beg the publishers to get them to consider having it translated ⬇️ 5mo
julesG It's scheduled for next summer. 😬) It's definitely a question of money. Wonder when German publishers will understand that cheaper books or discounts on new books would be an advantage. 5mo
GingerAntics @julesG shouldn‘t that be obvious?! Fans have to beg to get the end of a series?! I swear, the publishing industry around the world needs to be run by readers!!! 5mo

julesG It's in German, @LibrarianRyan. But the kiddo already snagged one of my UK editions ("for a re-read of the OV once we're done in German"). I have two UK editions and the US boxed set edition with the neon colours. What I seem to have lost, and don't ask me how I managed it, is my ebook copies. I know I bought them for Kindle, but they aren't in the Kindle cloud anymore (same goes for Name of the Wind). Might have accidentally deleted them. ??? 5mo
julesG @LibrarianRyan We also have books 1 and 2 in this lovely hardcover edition in German. Want to get book 3 for kiddo's birthday. 5mo
LibrarianRyan @julesG That's cool. I know you had multiple editions, this just threw me since the title was in english with the german below. 5mo
julesG @LibrarianRyan I'm actually glad they kept the English title and added a German subtitle. Normally books get a wholly different German title. 5mo
TheSpineView Hope the book is as good as the cover! 5mo

The fantasy elements in this one are so unique! Chimera and angels. Wishes granted through teeth. War in another world.

I also really enjoyed the characterization present throughout the story. Some of these characters felt very real.

I was surprised how different this felt for a YA fantasy, considering it was first released in 2011. And what a cliffhanger ending!

GondorGirl I devoured this trilogy! And this cover is so much better than the original one. 🧡 8mo
rjsthumbelina @GondorGirl I specifically purchased the UK paperback set bc the covers are so much better! 8mo

Kind of fun and easy to listen to. Not really my genre but sometimes YA fantasy is a pleasant change and this is quite well written. Will probably continue listening to the series for the next few days.

Bk1 of #FabulousFebruary & Bk8 of Feb is done! I loved this story about an angel & “demon” falling in love & the consequences. Set inbetween Prague & another world, it‘s both a love & a vengeance story.

This is it. All I have left to finish #readingeurope2020. I have Daughter (#CzechRepublic) twice because I can alternate between the ebook and IRL book. No 3 books could be any more different and thank heavens because Girl at War (#Croatia) is very very dark and heavy. Good, but whew!! Daughter helps keep things “light” so far. Empress (#Hungary) is kind of boring against those two. Oh well.

It‘s is no secret that I am not a fan of the Smoke & Bone trilogy book covers. I think they are cheap looking with a clashing color scheme and they do nothing to convey the incredible world within (I know. Harsh.) They are the epitome of “Don‘t judge a Book by its Cover” for me. So imagine the excitement I just had when I saw these new 10th year anniversary editions!! I love them so much!! 💙💚💗

reading_rainbow To clarify, I‘m not a fan of the original US paperback editions with the sultry eye and gaudy face masks. The original UK covers weren‘t that bad. A little boring, but not terrible 1y
