Recom-Monday-Tions – Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

So I have not even finished this series. I’ve only read the first two books, but this is such an awesome series that I feel confident enough to recommend it anyway.

“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.”

This is one of the most unique fantasy stories I’ve ever read. This is sort of an angel and demons story, but not really. It’s also quite dark (which I love!) so that’s a bonus.


Daughter of Smoke and Bone follows the story of Karou, a 17 year-old artist living in Prague with a rather unusual family.

“She moved like a poem and smiled like a sphinx.”

Karou had a rather unusal upbringing, as she was raised by Brimstone, a powerful Chimaera (creatures made up of people and animal bits) who makes wishes out of teeth.

I don’t want to say much about this as I don’t want to give anything away, as this is one of those stories that you really want to uncover for yourself. And I’m certain you will love it!

Find it here: 

Goodreads. Amazon. The Book Depository. Kobo.


  1. They are definitely a unique and interesting series! I listened to them on audiobook but I think they are better to just read because the narrator’s voice annoyed me after a while! Love Karou though!
