Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Freaking amazing book. I didn't expect this to be this good. I couldn't put the book down,like literally. Everything fits perfectly ,the characters ,the story,everything. It is so unique and different from other stories.
Thank you! Seventeen-year-old Karou leads a double life: as an art student in Prague with normal boyfriend troubles—and as a runner of bizarre errands for Brimstone, a scarred and saturnine sorcerer with the head of a ram and the lower body of a dragon. With similarly chimerical associates, he has raised her from infancy and dispatches her through magic portals to destinations all over the world. Switching points of view and settings, Taylor then fills in a back story that links Akiva and Karou in an older tragedy, while planting seeds that might lead ultimately to peace. The plot hinges on major contrivances, but along with writing in such heightened language that even casual banter often comes off as wildly funny, the author crafts a fierce heroine with bright-blue hair, tattoos, martial skills, a growing attachment to a preternaturally hunky but not entirely sane warrior and, in episodes to come, an army of killer angels to confront.
Despite all the hype that surrounded Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I studiously avoided it, kept my eyes lowered, even though the blue and grey.

Fantasy Books Of The Year
So Taylor had written this post over at Figment. My interest in the writing routines of authors, I lapped up the article, helpfully annotated with Instagrams of her notebook. I have always been a fantasy lover, but Taylor had given me a basic supernatural romance to love. The story itself is a love story first and an epic fantasy war after, and usually I would cry foul. But Daughter has simply dazzled me. I also adored how Taylor took two widely written about topics; Romeo and Juliet, Angel and Demon and then turned it all on its head by including a plotline of Wishes and Teeth!
