A girl who’s always been in the shadows finds herself pursued by the unbelievably attractive new boy at school, who may or may not be the death of her. Another girl grows up mute because of a curse placed on her by a vindictive spirit, and later must decide whether to utter her first words to the boy she loves and risk killing everyone who hears her if the curse is real. And a third girl discovers that the real reason for her transient life with her mother has to do with belonging — literally belonging — to another world entirely, full of dreaded creatures who can transform into animals, and whose queen keeps little girls as personal pets until they grow to childbearing age.
From a writer of unparalleled imagination and emotional insight, three stories about the deliciousness of wanting and waiting for that moment when lips touch.

I was actually quite disappointed by this audiobook. The book contains three short stories without any apparent connection apart from a kiss, hence the title of the book. The stories are just a bit to weird for my taste, but if you enjoy weirdness this might just be the stories for you.
The daughter of smoke and bone trilogy is a true audiobook experience. Absolutely perfect and highly recommendable.
I am sorry to say that I am unable to describe the narration in three words. The narration was far from bad, but my annoyance concerning the stories overshadowed CC's efforts.
I would not cut a character - I would rather cut two of the stories.
I just love the timbre of her voice,me the inflections and the youthfulness of her cadence.
Hard to say, I found it terribly difficult to follow the stories and couldn't relate to the characters. It lacked a cohesiveness that the other books by this author have.
Still love Laini Taylor!
"Laini Taylor will enchant you"
If you haven't yet discovered Laini Taylor, then you must immediately purchase one of her books. I started off by downloading "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", which is the first book in a trilogy and I was hooked. The lush language, the unique world building will enchant you. In a modern world where readers (and listeners) have been swamped and bored to tears by the "same ol', same ol'" vampire centred story (no matter how many spins of the theme there are), Laini's worlds are a breath of fresh air. Oh, but what air it is - absolutely captivating, gorgeous and it will leave you wishing for more. It is like rich and luscious cup of hot chocolate, but without the guilt.
"Lips touch three times" consists of three separate stories all about the mystery of love and the power of a kiss. But do not be put off - there is nothing cheesy or lame about these stories. Laini Taylor puts a spin on Irish, Hindu, and Zoroastrian folklore and with the mastery of her language creates something to behold.
An absolute gem not only for young adults, but for the not so young too. Listen to these stories and there will be a bit more magic in your life.
