Reviewed for the British Fantasy Society
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
September 2011, Hodder & Stoughton
I demand that two laws are immediately passed.
1) more books set in Prague
2) more books by Laini Taylor. Read this ,& you will understand.
With its secretive streets and tall spired towers, the Czech city perfectly suits this gothic, fairytale romance. The pages burst with art and romance, legend and tragedy, they swirl with fog and with teeth.
Secret portals that cross the globe in a flash. Real angels on the Charles Bridge. This book could not have been set anywhere else, or written by anyone else.
