This is the first line you’ll read in Daughter of Smoke & Boneand you won’t stop until you get to the last.

From National Book Award Finalist Laini Taylor comes the New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, an ancient and epic battle, and hope for a world remade. 

Entertainment Weekly says it’s “thrillingly fresh and new,” and Wired calls it “the next Next Big Thing”, but start reading and see for yourself: Amazon | B&N | Indiebound

Talk about a pretty thing made for a truly remarkable YA series.

"Oh, those are too violent."
"Oh, that isn’t really literature."
