Hello blog people,
I have been incredibly lazy over this summer holiday. I am quite ashamed to say I haven't done one blog post, but, the spark of motivation has exploded inside me in the form of a book review. A book review of a fantastic book. Called Daughter of smoke and bone. Here's my review:
And all the other characters are fresh and entertaining. Karou's monster family were intruiging, mainly because they were monsters. But, their personalities are human. And they're elusive and secretive and all you want is to know more about them. And when we finally do find out, it's pretty explosive.
The story is so unique. Ok, it has angels in it. Most YA novels have angels in them now, but seriously do not let that put you off! The monsters known as chimera play a much bigger part then the angels do. And there aren't many monster/fantasy creature type novels in the mainstream of YA at the moment. This book is a breath of fresh air. Following a girl who goes on errands to procure teeth for a monster that she sees as family, paid in wishes. No idea of her true origin. When the doors to the only place that she really sees as home start closing she's left all alone. Then an angel tries to kill her. But there's something about him...(*LOVE INTEREST*)
Karou starts to wonder; What is she?
The ending and the parts leading up to the ending were exciting and page turning. The rewind in time where we find out what type of puzzle the jumled pieces we've been given through out the book make up was awesome! and VERY ORIGINAL.
I love that it was set in Prauge aswell. There aren't many book set in Prauge; which is a shame because it's a really beautiful city.
I loved the book, I can't wait for the sequel!
Now, I leave you with this quote."Once upon a time an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well."
