Synopsis:Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hair actuallygrows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
Review:Karou is an art student with a not so normal life. When shes not at school or with her friend shes traveling around doing errands like getting teeth for the sorcerer who raised her. Things were normal enough for her until she slowly started to notice branding marks and was attacked by an angel. From then on thing in her life changed.
I really loved this book, I at first had a hard time getting into it. When I decided to give this book another shot through audiobook I was from then on hooked. I really enjoyed this book I finished this book fairly quickly. I also loved the backstory of what went on in Karou's past life. I really look forward to seeing more from the next book.
