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?
This book has been on my shelf for quite sometime. A lot of reviews have loved this book. SO i finally got to read it.
There were so many emotions going on in my head when I was reading this book. At first wen I started it, I had no clue what was going on. But then I kept reading, then I started to understand what was going on in the plot line. Taylor did a phenomenal job. I just really loved the book.
Karou was such a kick A character, I loved her. She didn't let people get away . She was a really strong and independent character. So if you haven't read this bool, please put it at the top of your to be read pile. It is so good.
