Karou leads two lives. One is in the tangled streets of Prague, as an orphan and art student; the other in a clandestine workshop, overflowing with jars of teeth and wishes, run by the ram-horned magician, Brimstone the closest thing to family Karou has ever known. She doesn t know where she came from, but she s about to find out. When Karou meets stunning, haunted Akiva, she finds a love whose roots drink deep of a violent past, and an ancient war that is far from over. Master storyteller Laini Taylor imagines a wholly unique fantasy about a forbidden love, an epic battle, and hope for a world remade."

I LOVED this book! The story is incredibly incredibly original. The plot has great twists and turns. The characters are interesting and unique. The heroine is strong, independent and likeable (which is a rare combination in YA literature, as so many heroines are either simpering wallflowers like Bella Swan or very hardened like Katniss). And the romance is heartbreaking and believable.
The author is a National Book Award finalist, and you can really tell. She weaves together a great story using prose that is absolutely beautiful.
I think this is among the best (if not the best) paranormal romances I have ever read, and that includes the amazing work by Anne Rice.
