Synopsis

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.

'Remarkable and beautifully written . . . The opening volume of a truly original trilogy.' GUARDIAN

Very creative and inspiring. .. But quite drawn out at the end. .. I'm sure this is to help establish a background for the rest of the series but still long winded

This is unequivocally the most original series out at the moment. Beautifully written, it has the ability to make you forget the outside world and not want to leave!

Good but long winded towards the end
February 11th, 2014
Everything is great except that towards the few chapters near the end, it gets slow and boring. Too long winded.
