I don't know if you guys have seen the Facebook page, but the teasers they're posting? Um, CAN WE HAVE THIS BOOK NOW PLEASE?! It sounds incredible and Laini's writing is so beautiful! I'm so excited to get my hands on it.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone will be released on September 27th 2011. If you haven't already added it to your wishlists or preordered a copy, what are you waiting for?!



Meet Karou. For seventeen years she has successfully managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she is an art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to an inhuman creature who deals in wishes and is the closest thing she has to family. Her friends just think she’s kooky, but they don’t know the half of it… The beads of her necklace are no mere beads; her blue hair grows out of her head that colour; the monsters from her sketchbook are all real; and yes, those are bullet scars on her belly. The mysteries that surround Karou’s existence and have long tormented her are about to be laid bare… And the truth is more terrifying that she could have possibly imagined.

Laini Taylor’s exceptional novel is a fiercely imaginative creation, unbounded by genre, but located at a magical crossroads where The Passage meets Philip Pullman and Twilight meets Pan's Labyrinth. At its heart is Karou - an unforgettable heroine you’ll be rooting for every step of the way.
