As a PS in order to understand this review better if you haven t read the Fallen series please check out my thoughts on the other book that I will be discussing here This book is like some sort of weird alien When I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone I wasn t uite sure how to handle it What are you Daughter of Smoke and BoneIn the synopsis of Daughter of Smoke and Bone it tells you that this is a story about how a demon falls in love with an angel So one would think that this is about Heaven Hell God etc That is one of the best most amazing lies that I have ever heardWhat do I mean by that you ask 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 Taylor also inserts uotes and tales that further the story arc and characters Almost everything that s said thought and described has a point to it They can make you laugh cry and most importantly think It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such The dragon you know hunkered in the village devouring maidens heard the townsfolk cry Monster and looked behind him I don t know many rules to live by he d said But here s one It s simple Don t put anything unnecessary into yourself No poisons or chemicalsno fumes or smoke or alcohol no sharp objects no inessential needles drug or tattoo and no inessential penises either gigglesnort Karou wished she could be the kind of girl who was complete unto herself comfortable in solitude serene But she wasn t She was lonely and she feared the missingness within her as if it might expand andcancel her She craved a presence beside her solid Fingertips light at the nape of her neck and a voice meeting hers in the dark Someone who would wait with an umbrella to walk her home in the rain and smile like sunshine when he saw her coming Who would dance with her on her balcony keep his promises and know her secrets and make a tiny world wherever he was with just her and his arms and his whisper and her trust ooohhs and awwwwsOkay just one Until a few days ago humans had been little than legend to him and now here he was in their world It was like stepping into the pages of a book a book alive with color and fragrance filth and chaos and the blue haired girl moved through it all like a fairy through a story the light treating her differently than it others the air seemed to gather around her like held breath As if this whole place was a story about her Happiness It was the place where passion with all its dazzle and drumbeat met something softer homecoming and safety and pure sunbeam comfort It was all those things intertwined with the heat and the thrill and it was as bright within her as a swallowed star meltsThis woman is the master of the golden rule of show and not tell I never felt slowed down by pacing bad confused or anything Her writing left me with only good feelings Laini Taylor is a master story teller and I will never see her as anything but She carries you through all of Karou s emotions in the beginning you feel just as angry as she does then just as guilty about it when you know the whole story That s what I like to call a true authorOne night while I was reading this book I was laying in my bed thinking about the plot characters and what Taylor s overall theme because you know that s what cool people do at night think about the books that they just read and it all of a sudden hit me This book is everything Lauren Kate tried to do in her Fallen series and failed Laini Taylor however pulled it off with such a finesse and flair that made me fall in love with Daughter of Smoke and Bone even than I would have already The first thing that I ll talk about in this review that Taylor pulled off about a million times better than what Kate wrote was with Akiva the main love interest in this story First off Akiva actually is a badass angel with wings that are literally on fire amber eyes can burn things with a touch and has killed many chimera without mercy because he believes they are the one who s killed his only love Daniel on the other hand He sparkles fucking purple when his wings pop out But that s not all we get to see with his character Lauren Kate has a big problem with her books and Daniel with him being cold unavailable and not telling Luce anything that s going on with her life Once Kate had him integrated with that personality she didn t seem to be able to get Daniel out of that vicious and very annoying cycle He wouldn t and still doesn t stop doing that no matter what Luce every says to him When Akiva began to do the same thing ie closed off facial expressions not talkinglooking at her etc I thought oh no here we go again When Karou tells him to stop if he loves her then he ll stop doing this to her Then he actually listens and stops because guess what he truly does love her even if it hurts him in the long run he s willing to put Karou above himselfgasp And when the truth does come back and hit him in the face when Karou figures everything out he knows to accept the conseuences and lets her go Hell he even gives her the opportunity to kill him he knows what he has done to her and others that he loves is unacceptable And that s awesome That right there is what I call a man What Daniel does instead by putting himself and his shame first rather than Luce blows up in his face When she does find out he s so desperate to cover his own ass that he chases her through time and space That s just lame And Akiva is anything but lame This is how you write a tortured character in it s finest As I stated earlier he has a genuine pain and soul that someone could say one hundred percent is a tortured one And insta love Pha Don t let the beginning fool you because that isn t what their love is I won t spoil it for you all because well that s just something that if I told you and you haven t read this book would take out some of what makes this books so special so you ll have to find out for yourself I will give you one revelation that I came across however It really will blow your mind Are you ready Okay here goesGASPThen there was Karou who is the most badass person that I ve ever read about and is absolutely nothing like Luce from the Fallen series Again Kate tried to make Luce independent but she just ended up coming across as an idiot who threw herself into danger and put everyone around her in danger Karou however ooooohhhhhhhh Karou She s everything that I wanted in Luce but never received Karou is as funny as hell Well she mused I know there s only one person you really love and his name does start with a K But I can think of a better place for it than your heart She took up her pencil and on her last drawing of Kaz inscribed a K right over his classically sculpted buttock She actually realizes her mistakes and what certain ex boyfriends truly wanted from her Kaz just couldn t fathom any girl willfully depriving herself of his charms And what had she done but strengthen his vanity those months they d been together gazing at him starry eyed giving himeverything His wooing her now she thought was a point of pride to prove to himself that he could have who he wanted I mean come on how much can you ask for than that A badass girl with blue hair tattoos everywhere and has so many braincells wedged up into that brilliant head of hers that I think it s going to explode with all of the smartness that she s spouting out of her mouth This is a character that I can root for and stand behind all the way through a series and that s exactly what I plan on doing I can assure you all on that one And then there were the fallen angels what Lauren Kate s series was all about I have a uestion for you all Do you honestly think that God after all that they had done and betrayed him whom they are supposed to love uneuivocally would have left them in their perfect forms sparkly andor wings made out of pure fucking gold and just let them wander around the Earth Maybe I m just a cruel violent person but no Hell no Laini Taylor and I must have been on the same wavelength but she did the total opposite of that for the fallen angels His face was bloated and purple but bloated as its face was its features held an echo of long ago beautyBut the key to its true nature was at its back From its shoulder blades protruded the splintered remnants of wing jointsTime had curved his spine and his flesh pulled taut seemed to snag on every ridge of vertebrae His legs dangled uselessly behind him That my dears is a fucking ugly angel who really looks like he got punished he s not just wandering around sparkling and glowing He actually looks like a disgusting miserable wreck And then there s all of the smaller characters none are just added because Taylor needed room They all had something very important purpose Karou s best friend Zuzana and her musician boyfriend were amazingly written adorable and hilarious characters if you didn t burst out laughing when Zuzana said Oh hell Must Mate Immediately then you re lying to yourself The ballerinapuppeteer play was incredibly written and had my heart in my throat Karou s chimera sister and her chimera family were also incredibly well done and funny Thiago was one of the biggest bastards I ve ever read and I already talked about Akiva so I don t have to tell you all that he s totally swoon worthy for all the right reasons I could really picture everyone and sympathize with every pain and joy that Karou feltBasically this book is everything I wanted in not just Fallen but many other books that I ve read over the years and I rejoice in the fact that there are capable people out there who can write YA novels with an actual point and purpose Thank you Laini Taylor for restoring my faith in the ability of authors I guess I have just one thing left to sayBecause I will And I do Dark Clouds of the Morning read the Fallen series please check out my thoughts on the other book that I will be discussing here This book is like some sort of weird alien When I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone I wasn t uite sure how to handle it What are you Daughter of Smoke and BoneIn the synopsis of Daughter of Smoke and Bone it tells you that this
