I enjoyed reading this book. I loved how the life stories of these characters entertwined with each other towards the end of the story. This book kept me guessing and thinking of possible outcomes. While reading this story I thought of what i would do given the events. I don't think I've ever read a book that kept me reading and wanting more. Now that I've read the book, I can't wait for the sequal so I can see what happens next.

I really liked this book it kept me on the very edge on if they will be able to stay together or if not. I would really like to tell you the answer to that but it would give the entire book away. You will just have to go read it yourself. I believe this book would be good for the people who enjoy romance and forbidden love. I Enjoyed it very MUCH!

       This book is the best book I have ever read. The writing was excellent. I loved the way she portrayed the characters. It is the story of a girl torn between two worlds. She faces angels and devils but good and evil are hard to find.      I can not wait for the next book. I love this author.

This book was so good in the beginning, there was a lot of action and it kept you wanting to read it. Then in the middle, it started to slow down. And the storyline started to become predictable. then in the end, the action started to pick up once more. Overall, this was an amazing book. I enjoyed reading something different from the average fantasy book.

Karou is your typical teenage art student in prag... with vibrant blue hair and the weirdest job ever, collecting teeth for a chimera named Brimstone. Until black handprints start showing up on portal doors. Wishes and alternate dimentions, the perfect blend of funny and suspensful. I loved almost every minute of it. Laini TAylor has an amazing writing style and I'm super excited for the sequel, which this book will have or I might have to hurt somebody, the cliff hanger ending leaves much to be desired later on.

       I thought the setting was good, but I wasn't really hooked.  It sounds like a good book, but I guess it wasn't the kind of book for me.    Set in Prague, Czech Republic, where an art student named Karou lives a strange life.  She has no nationality, has blue hair, and works for a man named Brimstone who deals wishes in exchange for teeth, which she collects on her "Errands".  But strange things are occurring, like black hand-prints on doors, and a war that's been secretly going on, and she is in the middle of it.

  1. This engaging story starts off in what could be our time, in Prague. However, Laini Taylor takes us through magic portals into another world populated by seraphim (not the Bible's angels) and chimera. The story we join there, told in large part through flashbacks, is both beautiful and awful. The world and characters that Taylor builds are multidimensional. Karou, in particular, is a strong feminine protagonist (which was also quite welcome after the Twilight series).
