Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I had ordered this book from the library to use it for the Monthly Key Word Challenge BUT I have over fulfilled my quota for the month!! LOL!
This is a teen fiction book about a girl named Karou, who lives in Prague. She is an excellent artist who does errands for Brimstone, who is a chimera. His shop is between worlds. He pays her in wishes. She has always wondered where she came from and who her parents are.
I found this book fascinating and intelligent. Not the usual teen supernatural book. If you are looking for something like Twilight, this is not the one!! I wanted to see Karou's drawings!!
I think this book would be an amazing movie! If I think this someone else must have - so I found this on her blog. It was optioned by Universal.....but that doesn't mean it will happen....
Here is a much better review. Laini Taylor's blog.
