Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor *Stephanie’s Review*



Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is one of those books that everyone claims is one of the best books in the universe. And it is. What they don’t tell you is that it takes time to appreciate it. What they don’t tell you is that it is so confusing until all of a sudden it’s not anymore.

Karou is living the life that most older teenage girls would love. She’s got her own apartment, attends art school, has an amazing best friend, and an endless supply of small wishes. I really don’t want to get into too much of the plot because I think it’s more valuable for you to discover it all for yourself.

What I do want to discuss is Taylor’s amazing skill as a wordsmith. She blends reality and fantasy so well, not only do you truly want to believe it, if you close your eyes, you can almost hear Brimstone’s deep voice. You can certainly feel all of the emotions running through Karou and Akiva. I’ve never had more clear visions of a foreign country than I have Prague. It sounds beautiful!

I am very much excited to continue reading this series!

  1. I read this when it first came out. It is still one of my most fave books of all time.


    1. It was so descriptive! I feel like I have to go to Prague now. πŸ™‚ I am excited to continue the series!


  2. Great series. Need to read the last one still.


    1. I know a lot of people put off reading the last book because they were afraid of the trilogy ender. A lot of YA series are great when they start but the third book can swing either way! πŸ™‚ I’m hoping to continue the series SOON!
