Sara Grey's world shattered 10 years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now, at 17, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets, and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara's own very powerful gift. In her quest for answers about her father's death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire.

I had to return this book after attempting to get through chapter 1 three times. The narrator reads so fast without emotion that I could not concentrate on the story. It may be a good book, I don't know, but good luck enjoying the audio version.

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.

If you could sum up Daughter of Smoke and Bone in three words, what would they be?

Excellent Narrator and very well written, this book starts off the series in a way that literally paints an entire landscape for the reader. As the book goes on it unwinds a wonderful story with both happiness and pain. Must get this series!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both on several occasions

I was not sure about this book at first because it was so short. I'm glad I got it though as it really is an important part of the whole series. Don't miss it!

In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

This book wraps up the hollows in such a spectacular way. My only regret is knowing it was the last one. This was my favorite series I have ever read. Bravo!
