"Simply brilliant, I love it!…"
I read the first book in this trilogy, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and simply loved it, what an amazing imagination Laini Taylor has. I like the incredible characters, the juxtaposition, supposedly, between good and evil, angels and chimaeras; or is it so black and white? The plot of this amazing story plays out over three worlds, and what happens in one has consequences in the others. The story has love and hate, twists and turns, bluffs and double bluffs, and certainly keeps you guessing. Karou and Akiva fall in love and the consequences of this resound far and wide. Torn between their love for each other and their loyalty to their kind, they simply want peace between the worlds. Amongst the war and bloodshed, loss and hope, Laini Taylor also incorporates humour, which gives moments of relief to the plot. I was totally lost in this amazing story. A must read book! I cannot wait for the final part.Read moreLess
