We are always on the look out for the next big thing and Daughter of Smoke and Bone is tipped to be hot on the heels of The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games. The book, which is the firts part of a trilogy written by Laini Taylor, has been picked up by Universal. We are all in the throes of reading the book at the moment and will give it a proper review when we are done but so far we like it!
Meet Karou. For seventeen years she has successfully managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she is an art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to an inhuman creature who deals in wishes and is the closest thing she has to family. Her friends just think she’s kooky, but they don’t know the half of it… The beads of her necklace are no mere beads; her blue hair grows out of her head that colour; the monsters from her sketchbook are all real; and yes, those are bullet scars on her belly. The mysteries that surround Karou’s existence and have long tormented her are about to be laid bare… And the truth is more terrifying than she could have possibly imagined.
