Publisher Description

The first book in the New York Times bestselling epic fantasy trilogy by award-winning author Laini Taylor.

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?

I’m in love first book to make me cry in a long time

When I got this book I was hesitant to start reading it the cover and title look fake deep and kinda cheesy but after I read the first few pages I couldn’t put it down I was in tears at the end

Highly recommend this book!

I will admit that I'm not that interested in "Angel stories" (read the first three books of "Mortal Instruments" and wasn't the biggest fan) but I adored this book. It's such a simple story that is conveyed beautifully. One of the easiest five stars I've ever given!
