Daughter of Smoke and Bone Review
Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grow dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young are student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she's prone to disappearing on mysterious 'errands', she speaks many languages-not all of them human-and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that colour. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
Guys, I've finally got around to reading this book! I heard it was good from many booktubers said it was good, (cough, katytastic, cough) so I been meaning to read it for a while. So let's get into the review.
I liked how we first meet Karou she is dealing with an ex who is having trouble deal with their break up. She dealt with him so amazingly and didn't let him get over her and put her under his control. When she found out about Akiva, she was pretty chill and had wished for freaking wings. Like, it is a perfectly reasonable wish.
Akiva was so awkward in the really world, which was hilarious, expected when he meets Karou's best friend. Expactally since he didn't actually know what she was saying.
Karou's and Akiva's relationship revail really made the story that much better. At first I thought that it was insta romance, but then you find out it is far from it. Which made the story better in my opinion.
5 out of 5 stars
