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.
You don't want this book to end . . . it's cancelling-weekend-plans, stay-up-all-night-addictive.
A masterful mix of reality and fantasy with cross-genre appeal. Exquisitely written and beautifully paced.
Trust us, it's brilliant
'WOW. I wish I had written this book.'
'Taylor's three novellas form a triptych of beautiful fantasy writing reminiscent of Charles de Lint and Neil Gaiman'
'Even nonfantasy lovers will find themselves absorbed by Taylor's masterful, elegant work.'
Laini Taylor's imagination is vivid.
Northern Lights and Pan's Labyrinth in one.
