"SMOKE AND BONE" is an amazing tale of blue haired Karou, a spirited seventeen-year old human girl that was adopted and raised by a group of monsters -- the chimaeras -- part human and part beast. Karou journeys into other realms in search of teeth for Brimstone, her adoptive father. The teeth are highly prized and bartered away for wishes. Karou is highly adept at gaining teeth as she travels in various missions though the journey is often riddled with danger. Karou is smart, sassy and very adept in her services, while she enjoys going to private art school in Prague with an amazing talent as a gifted artist. But even though Karou is happy and loyal to her family, she is also riddled with questions of who she is and how she came to live with her mystical family. Her tattoos are mysteries in themselves. The story takes a turn when Akiva enters the scene, an angel intent on killing Karou and stopping the teeth trade. But Akiva can’t fulfill his plans to harm Karou due to her uncanny similarity to his lost love and soon the two find themselves caught up in forbidden romance set amongst the conflict between good and evil.
"SMOKE AND BONE" is a wonderful read filled with a colorful cast of characters who are woven and spread throughout an enchanting world of the writer’s creative imagination. The author weaves both mystery and intrigue into every chapter with captivating descriptions that tease the mind. I really enjoyed this book with its forbidden love story and look forward to seeing more from this talented author. A highly recommended read!
