starlady: (oh noes)
Taylor, Laini. Daughter of Smoke and Bone. New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2011.

Laini Taylor was one of the Guests of Honor at Sirens 2011, which quite fittingly had the theme of Monsters, which is how I came to own this book. I jumped it up in my reading queue because [personal profile] shveta_writes wanted to know what I thought of it. I had two reactions.

The first is that this was an enjoyable read. It's the story of Karou, a human girl who lives mostly in Prague but travels all over the world for and via the strange teeth-collecting, wish-dealing shop of her other family, a group of Fury-like creatures called chimeras who are all the home she's ever known. Karou doesn't know who she is, but her life goes to hell around her anyway when an angel and his battle-hardened brethren show up, looking to put an end to an age-old war in their other world.
