en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – July 2012

A book unbounded by genre but located at a magical crossroads where "The Passage" meets Philip Pullman and "Twilight" meets "Pan's Labyrinth". This features a 17-year-old girl who, on the one hand, is an art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in 'Elsewhere', she has never understood his dark work - buying teeth from hunters and murderers - nor how she came into his keeping.

'WOW. I wish I had written this book.' -- Patrick Rothfuss DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is that rare beast: a novel that takes the familiar and makes it appear startling and new. Taylor has embraced the mythology of angels and reworked it in an extraordinary form, so that by the end of this lyrical, haunting book, I wanted to believe in the existence of these violent, tormented beings. I can hardly wait for the next installment. -- John Connolly Remarkable and beautifully written ... The opening volume of a truly original trilogy. -- Guardian Northern Lights and Pan's Labyrinth in one. -- Stylist The world-building descriptions and language stop your heart and then, like a defibrillator, start it up again. -- New York Times You don't want this book to end ... it's cancelling-weekend-plans, stay-up-all-night-addictive. -- Easy Living Laini Taylor's imagination is vivid. -- Financial Times A pacy and inventive tale of a girl with an unknown past and supernatural friends ... Mesmerising. -- Marie Claire Big things are expected of this, the first in a new fantasy trilogy, and we can see why ... Imaginative and sexy, we couldn't put this down. -- Bella Trust us, it's brilliant -- Heat A beautifully written novel, reminiscent of Neil Gaiman ... It is a wonderfully realised world, with fantastic but completely believable characters ... It is sure to be a huge, and deserved, success. -- We Love This Book Thrillingly fresh and new. The smartly plotted, surprising, and fiercely compelling read will hook you from its opening pages. (Seriously, cancel all plans once you begin; you won't want to put it down.) -- Entertainment Weekly For once the frenzy over a teen novel is justified. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor is one of those books that blots out reality, so consumed do you become in its fantasy world of chimeras and angels ... inevitably there is an epic romance but Taylor is a talented writer; this is aeons apart from the usual angels and werewolves dross. -- Sunday Telegraph A mesmerising novel on an epic scale. -- Glamour It's the first in a trilogy and I can't wait for the next instalment. -- Sun You'll be mesmirised by the twists and turns of the first in this new trilogy. -- More 'Laini Taylor pushes the boundaries of realism as she weaves in an age-old (fairytale?) story of the war between angels and demons with the world of today. Extremely gripping with the right dose of romance thrown in, this one is an out and out page turner.' -- Sunday Guardian's Essential Reading list, India
