Daughter of Smoke & Bone - Laini Taylor I was honestly blown away by this book. Had it not been for the recommendations I saw for this book, I never would have picked it up. I am so glad that for once I listened to the recommendations and read it. Not only is it a completely original story, it is excellently written with just the right amount of pacing throughout the story. This is definitely one series that I'll be preordering the next book.
