Taylor’s writing is as sumptuous as poetry, and the story overflows with dark and delightful magic, star-crossed love, and difficult choices with heartbreaking repercussions.

I write fantasy books Check it out :-) Before that I wrote the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE.
I write fantasy books. My latest is STRANGE THE DREAMER, about a young librarian, a mythic lost city, and the half-human children of murdered gods. It's about a blue-haired art student raised by monsters, a broken angel, and a war that has raged for 1000 years in another world. I also wrote LIPS TOUCH: THREE TIMES, which was a National Book Award finalist, and the DREAMDARK books.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Author : Laini Taylor. Genres : Fantasy, Young Adult.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone book. That because this book is nothing about that. Laini Taylor has stripped that idea to its bare bones and has changed it; morphed it in such a way that it's it own genre. And it isn't just about the mythology; it's about love, growing up, truth, prejudices, and overcoming hardships. I can tell you right now that this book basically has nothing to do with angels and demons, and I couldn't be happier about that then I ever have been my whole life.
I wish I had read Daughter of Smoke and Bone earlier. AND Laini Taylor writes in a way that makes me imagine old time Europe mixed with a Miyazaki film (which are obviously the best movies ever). It’s pretty much exactly what I was combing through endless clones for. It had plot and character, length without filler, a prose I could actually love, and something I’d found oddly missing from the fantasy genre: worldbuilding. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is equal parts teen romance and Jim Henson. The book is a wonderful fantasy that is both complicated, but easy to read. It has a lot of twists and turns, but they are worth waiting for and often very unexpected.

Part of Daughter of Smoke & Bone series by Laini Taylor. As Zuzana took the book, a couple of other students, Pavel and Dina, crowded in to look over her shoulder. Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Lips Touch: Three Times. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9. New York Boston. Karou’s sketchbooks had a cult fol owing around school and were handed around and marveled at on a daily basis.
