Art student Karou harbors a dark secret: her fantastical sketches of mismatched, bestial creatures – women with snake tails, parrots with fingers, humanoid gazelles with bat wings – are real. And these chimeras are in grave danger, locked in a war of eons with the seraphim, who have long wanted to exterminate them. When her only semblance of a family is forever locked away by the heavenly fire of a scorched handprint, Karou scours the world for a portal back to her home and finds it with some unlikely help from an angel. Strangely enough, Akiva seems familiar…as if she had known him a lifetime ago…in a different body.
A refreshingly innovative and intriguing take on the classic dichotomy of seraphic and demonic warfare, and an artful blend of fantasy, romance, and adventure, The Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a great read for young adults. Check Our Catalog
