Waiting on Wednesday – Daughter of Smoke and Bone by: Laini Taylor

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Daughter Of Smoke and Bone by: Laini Tyalor

Release Date: September 27, 2011

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 otherworldly 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 one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored 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?

I have been following Laini’s blog since the fall.  I have yet to read one of her books, even though I have Lips Touch on my bookshelf at home.  Her blog’s though are full of her amazing adventures, and I can’t help but have some serious author envy for her lifestyle.  Her publishers have been giving this book a big push and with that description I can see why.  Also, may YA authors I follow have send marvelous things about ARC’s of it.  I can’t help but be excited for it too!  It sounds like it has everything teenage me would have wanted in a book.
