Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was introduced to Laini Taylor by her children's novel, Dreamdark, a rich piece of fantasy fiction. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was just as rich with color, life and soul as I hoped it would be. Much like the title character, Karou, Taylor is a word artist with a gift for making you taste the world her characters live in. In a word, sublime.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Two damaged people tell a tale as old as time, except with lots of sex, passion and family drama worthy of a modern fairytale.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While the main heroine grated on my nerves at times, things got very interesting halfway through the novel. By the time the real magic starts happening I was hooked until I had read the very last page and look forward to reading the sequel.
