Lips Touch

An award-winning short story collection from the author of the must-read DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE trilogy.

In Victorian times, goblins offered sumptuous fruits in exchange for maiden’s souls… and were usually successful. But what does it take to tempt today’s savvy young women? Discover the answer in GOBLIN FRUIT.

In SPICY LITTLE CURSES a demon and the ambassador to Hell tussle over the soul of a beautiful English girl in India. Matters become complicated when she falls in love and decides to test the curse placed upon her.

And in HATCHLING, six days before Esme’s fourteenth birthday, her left eye turns from brown to blue. She little suspects what the change heralds, but her small safe life begins to unravel at once. What does the beautiful, fanged man want with her, and how is her fate connected to a mysterious race of demons?

Reviews

'WOW. I wish I had written this book.'
Patrick Rothfuss on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
It's the first in a trilogy and I can't wait for the next instalment.
<i>Sun</i> 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> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
'DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is that rare beast: a novel that takes the familiar and makes it appear startling and new. Taylor has embraced the mythology of angels and reworked it in an extraordinary form, so that by the end of this lyrical, haunting book, I wanted to believe in the existence of these violent, tormented beings. I can hardly wait for the next installment.'
John Connolly DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Thrillingly fresh and new. The smartly plotted, surprising, and fiercely compelling read will hook you from its opening pages. (Seriously, cancel all plans once you begin; you won't want to put it down.)
<i>Entertainment Weekly</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Big things are expected of this, the first in a new fantasy trilogy, and we can see why . . . Imaginative and sexy, we couldn't put this down.
<i>Bella</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Laini Taylor's imagination is vivid.
<i>Financial Times</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Remarkable and beautifully written . . . The opening volume of a truly original trilogy.
<i>Guardian</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
A beautifully written novel, reminiscent of Neil Gaiman . . . It is a wonderfully realised world, with fantastic but completely believable characters . . . It is sure to be a huge, and deserved, success.
<i>We Love This Book</i> 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> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Northern Lights and Pan's Labyrinth in one.
<i>Stylist</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
Trust us, it's brilliant
<i>Heat</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
A pacy and inventive tale of a girl with an unknown past and supernatural friends . . . Mesmerising.
<i>Marie Claire</i> DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE
