GUEST REVIEWER for Daughter of Smoke and Bone

A big thank you to Little Brown for sending me a copy of this book.

TITLE:              Daughter of Smoke and Bone

AUTHOR:        Laini Taylor

GENRE:           YA

RATING:         5 stars (according to Sharon)

My friend Sharon was very excited about reviewing this book - so, here is her review (hint: she loved it!).

First and foremost, I would like to thank Tina, my coolest friend for giving me this book to read. OH MY GOD! I will try my best to do this book justice, because it simply was so good, I can’t find all the words.

The world that Laini creates, with Karou’s chimaera “family” and the angels (Seraphim) that are at war with them, is at once beautiful as it is heartbreaking. Who is the “beast”, you will ask yourself. She uses such powerful descriptive, I could see Brimstone, with Kishmish atop one of his great ram’s horn, so clearly in my mind. The love that she has for her family is beautiful.
But what are the teeth for that he sends her out on missions to get? And why is her hair blue? She has tattoos on her hands, but why? You will get the answers, at the end, but till then you are glued to this book. All I can really say is, if you want a book that you will never forget, and then cry because you have to wait for book 2, this is the one for you. Excuse me while I go get another Kleenex....sniff sniff.
