In Laini Taylor's newest novel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, a seemingly ordinary teenager is caught up in a deadly otherworldly war--and learns she plays a more important role in that war than she ever could have imagined. Karou was lovingly raised by the Chimera magician Brimstone, for whom she travles the world collecting teeth. When the Seraphim, enemy to the Chimera, burn the portals linking Earth and Elsewhere (the Chimera's world), Karou finds herself exiled from the only family she has ever known. Desperate to get back to them, Karou enlists the help of Akiva, a renegade angel who, after falling in love with a Chimera, has been harboring a secret dream of peace between the races. The two rediscover love and Karou will finally learn the answer to the greatest question of all: Who she really is. But can she handle the truth? Or will it destroy her?   Daughter of Smoke and Bone is not your typical tale of romance between human and paranormal creature. There is true creativity here. Taylor does an awesome job creating fully-rounded characters and setting the scenes in which they interact.  Check this one out if you're looking for an awesome fantasy. Just be prepared for the crazy plot twist! --AJL
