Waiting on Wednesday (17)

June 22, 2011 waiting on wednesday 16

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Release date: Sept. 27, 2011

Summary from Goodreads:
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?

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, showcasing an upcoming release that you’re looking forward to. Here’s mine for this week! Link leads to its Good Reads page.

    I really like the sounds of this – especially the little touches like the black handprints and supplies of human teeth.

    I cheated and went with a double WOW this.

    Ooh, this sounds really interesting – I hadn’t heard of it before you posted, so thanks! I love the cover too – the blue mask is really striking.
