Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a book unbounded by genre but located at a magical crossroads where The Passage meets Philip Pullman and Twilight meets Pan's Labyrinth.

Errand requiring immediate attention. Come.

The note was on vellum, pierced by the talons of the almost-crow that delivered it. Karou read the message. 'He never says please', she sighed, but she gathered up her things.

When Brimstone called, she always came.

In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she's a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in 'Elsewhere', she has never understood Brimstone's dark work - buying teeth from hunters and murderers - nor how she came into his keeping. She is a secret even to herself, plagued by the sensation that she isn't whole.

Now the doors to Elsewhere are closing, and Karou must choose between the safety of her human life and the dangers of a war-ravaged world that may hold the answers she has always sought.

A great three part series, I recommend you buy all three books together as you won't want to stop. A really unique and interesting story line with some cool concepts and great strong female leads. Great for fantasy and sci-fi lovers.

I read this first as an e-book and loved it so much that I bought the actual book then read it again. I loved it.

Smashed all expectations and left me in a puddle of angst

5

This series intrigued me because the blurbs didn't seem to line up between book 1 and 2, and boy am I glad I noticed that oddity. The characters are wonderful, the story twisting and weaving as it builds so something beautiful and heart wrenching. The author's language when describing places is amazing and never have I wanted to visit Prague more. She creates such a unique and mysterious environment seemingly effortlessly and I absolutely adore it. This is my #1 recommended series for any reader interested in fantasy with side note of romance and right amount of action.
