Daughter of Smoke and Bone (#1)
|Series:||Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy Ser.|
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.
'WOW. I wish I had written this book.' Patrick Rothfuss
'Daughter of Smoke and Bone is that rare beast: a novel that takes the familiar and makes it appear startling and new. Taylor has embraced the mythology of angels and reworked it in an extraordinary form, so that by the end of this lyrical, haunting book, I wanted to believe in the existence of these violent, tormented beings. I can hardly wait for the next installment.' John Connolly
'Remarkable and beautifully written ... The opening volume of a truly original trilogy.' -Guardian
'Northern Lights and Pan's Labyrinth in one.' Stylist
'The world-building descriptions and language stop your heart and then, like a defibrillator, start it up again.' - New York Times
'You don't want this book to end ... it's cancelling-weekend-plans, stay-up-all-night-addictive.' - Easy Living
'Laini Taylor's imagination is vivid.' Financial Times
'A pacy and inventive tale of a girl with an unknown past and supernatural friends ... Mesmerising.' Marie Claire
'Big things are expected of this, the first in a new fantasy trilogy, and we can see why ... Imaginative and sexy, we couldn't put this down.' Bella
'Trust us, it's brilliant' Heat
'A beautifully written novel, reminiscent of Neil Gaiman ... It is a wonderfully realised world, with fantastic but completely believable characters ... It is sure to be a huge, and deserved, success.'- We Love This Book
'Thrillingly fresh and new. The smartly plotted, surprising, and fiercely compelling read will hook you from its opening pages. (Seriously, cancel all plans once you begin; you won't want to put it down.)'Entertainment Weekly
