Book review- Daughter of smoke and bone by Lanie taylor

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
April  8-  May  23

Summary  -Around the world, black handprints 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 grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly 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 color. 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?

This  review  Contains   Spoilers  you are  warned  

Review -  Karou   lives  two lives  she's  a  teenager   that  lives in  Prague  and has  sketchbooks  filled  with different  creatures and  the other life   where those monsters  are  actually  real  she  is the  errand  girl  to  the   chimera  a  man  monster  named   Brimstone  and  it  involves  teeth  Brimstone  has  teeth  Karou  doesn't know  what is  with the teeth and where  the shop  really  is    he  says it  is in  Elsewhere  .  other  characters  that  I loved  are zuzana   is  karou's  best friend  .   then  we  meet  Ackiva   who  is  an  angel  with  vengeance  for  the  chimera   he  and the rest of the angels  are putting  black  handprints  on   portals   when  Ackiva   and  Kauro  meet    he tries to  kill her   and then stops    Karou  gets  away  and  gets  back to the portal  she  sees the   door   that  has always  been  closed   open  and goes  in    and brimstone  is  there    and this  other  creatures    he  throws  her out  goes  home   and  she tells  zuzanna  and  she  believes her  when kishmish  is  flying dead into her  hands   and  the portal  is gone.   ackiva   wants to  know  who  Karou  is    and  when he  finds her  Karou    bares  her  hamsas   and hurts him   they  go to talking   and then  something  happens   she  starts  to  feel  for him   and when he  notices   her    wishbone  necklace   and  he  says  he  knows  who  she  is   then his  angel  family  appears   he  tells her to  run  and  ackiva  tells  them    that  he  fell  for  a chimera  and  they  left  .  before  I get  into something  big  that  I was  not  expecting  I want to talk about the  wishes   so  the  wishes comes from  pain   scuppies  are  not that bad  but  bigger   it's  worse     and  Brimstone  said  hope  is  bigger than wishes  .  so   when they  break  the  wishbone  it goes back  to  madrill  I  knew of  her  because   she was  akiva's  love  and she died  but this was  like the biggest thing I liked hearing all the stuff but  when   Mad is  sentenced  to death  for  being an angel lover   that's when resurrection  comes into  play  so apparently  when you die  you can  take the soul and put it in  another body   and that's what happened  to  hide  Mad from thiago  the white  wolf    Brimstone put her as Karou  WHAT! I didn't see that coming and the ending   there all dead  I loved this book  so  much  I recommend  it  .

Favorite  quotes  Who are you ? he asked she almost didn't recognize  the language he spoke as chimera so soft on his tongue don't you usually find that out before you kill someone.

Daughter of smoke and bone by lani Taylor

You haven't come up here before ? He asked she turned to him oh yes I bring all the boys up here . And if they don't meet your approval he said you can always push them off. Page 218

Fiala  would  so eat   her  words   .  You should  bring  him  in to  model  on  monday .  Right  said  Karou    I'm sure  he  wouldn't  mind  stripping for  a  bunch of humans  disrobing said   zuzanna  ,prim  .For art  page  236

It's  a  wishbone  ,  she  told  him  ,  holding it out  .  you  hook  your   finger  around  the  spur  ,   like  this  ,   and we  each  make  a  wish   and pull.   whoever gets  the  bigger  piece  gets  their  wish. Magic  ?   akiva  had  asked  .  what   bird  does  this  come from   that it's bones  are  magic  .  oh  it's not  magic   .  The  wishes  don't really  come   true    then  why do it  ?   she  shrugged  . Hope  ?  hope  can be  a  powerful force   .  Maybe  they're  no  actual magic  in it  ,   but  when  you  know  what  you   hope  for   the most  and  hold it  like a light  within  you, you can  make things happen  ,  almost like  magic .  Page  288
