Book Blurb: 

Errand requiring immediate attention. Come.

The note was on vellum, pierced by the talons of the almost-crow that delivered it. Karou read the message. ‘He never says please’, she sighed, but she gathered up her things.

When Brimstone called, she always came.

In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she’s a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in ‘Elsewhere’, she has never understood Brimstone’s dark work – buying teeth from hunters and murderers – nor how she came into his keeping. She is a secret even to herself, plagued by the sensation that she isn’t whole.

Now the doors to Elsewhere are closing, and Karou must choose between the safety of her human life and the dangers of a war-ravaged world that may hold the answers she has always sought.

Review:
Read this in two days, Suffered insomnia over the single night of continuous reading: and it was worth it. This book was stunningly beautiful. Laini Taylor’s descriptions were thorough and animated. This book has to be one of my favourite all times. I loved the character Karou so much. Laini made sure Karou was a real person adding little details that may seem insignificant but certainly weren’t.
I found this book when I was bored on the waterstones sight. It looked good and I didn’t have anything else to read so I thought I might as well get it. As you may have read from an earlier post, it took a while to actually find the book, but all that was worth it.
I’m struggling to find a flaw within this book, I’m not sure it’s even possible to find one.
I’m leaving this a short review, before I reveal any spoilers.
This book is a masterpiece.
