Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor | Yomna's Review


I really enjoyed this one. I’ve read one other book about angels before, and it was Fallen by Lauren Kate, and trust me, it’s NOWHERE as good as this one. In Fallen, I felt like the angels were cheesy and uncomfortable, but here… Oh my god. The world is great, the characters are charming, it’s just such a great read overall.

I loved Karou/Madrigal! I was really interested in her memories and flashbacks, it felt like I was being let in on a secret. The dynamic with Thiago was very interesting. I liked her when she was human too, her artistry was incredible to imagine, and she was a badass woman overall, crescent moon-shaped knives and all.

Akiva was adorably gorgeous. He’s such an untouchable person in the beginning, and then it turns out that he is extremely soft and cute inside. Ugh, I love good character development. Akiva was so well done, and so was the romance between him and Karou. The tension got me clenching my jaw all through the book, but how could it not be worth it?

How dare they hang me off the cliff through? (Haha, Cliff-hanger! Okay, I should stop making jokes) That was such a suspense ending. I refuse to believe that any of the characters are dead. I mean, it’s practically a given at this point, because what would be the point of having a sequel if it were otherwise? And yes, I know, the sequel could be about different characters or something else but don’t argue with me, okay. I can’t afford to think like that.

I strongly recommend this book! If you’re like me and you’re not exactly interested in books about angels, READ IT! It might change your mind! I always thought that angels in books were such a stupid concept, but this is good! 

forever and always,
