Goblin Fruit: An eBook short story from Lips Touch

From the author of the astounding must-read novel DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, comes a vividly imaginative short story, GOBLIN FRUIT (from the award-winning short story collection LIPS TOUCH).

Kizzy wanted it all so bad her soul leaned half out of her body hungering after it, and that was what drove the goblins wild, her soul hanging out there like an un-tucked shirt.

Beware of souls that want too much.

Northern Lights and Pan's Labyrinth in one.
<i>Stylist</i> on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Laini Taylor's imagination is vivid.
<i>Financial Times</i> on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
You don't want this book to end . . . it's cancelling-weekend-plans, stay-up-all-night-addictive.
<i>Easy Living</i> on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Trust us, it's brilliant
<i>Heat</i> on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
For once the frenzy over a teen novel is justified. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor is one of those books that blots out reality, so consumed do you become in its fantasy world of chimeras and angels . . . inevitably there is an epic romance but Taylor is a talented writer; this is aeons apart from the usual angels and werewolves dross.
<i>Sunday Telegraph</i> on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
'Even nonfantasy lovers will find themselves absorbed by Taylor's masterful, elegant work.'
<i>Publishers Weekly</i>, starred review, on LIPS TOUCH
'WOW. I wish I had written this book.'
Patrick Rothfuss on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
'Taylor's three novellas form a triptych of beautiful fantasy writing reminiscent of Charles de Lint and Neil Gaiman'
<i>Booklist</i>, starred review, on LIPS TOUCH
A masterful mix of reality and fantasy with cross-genre appeal. Exquisitely written and beautifully paced.
