Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
Yes, I know this book has been out for quite a while. I still wanted to review if, okay?
Okay, so the synopsis didn’t really make me automatically want to read this book. But I had heard an incredible amount of really great things about the series, so I decided to pick it up. IT WAS AMAZING. I could not put it down. The characters were all really dynamic and interesting. I’m not going to spoil anything-but there are some seriously major twists in this book. I recommend this to anyone–you will love this book!
