Author Laini Taylor introduces readers to the world of magic, monsters, and forbidden love. The main character, Karou, doesn’t know who her parents were, why she has tattoos of eyes on her hands, or even why Brimstone (the only father she has ever known, who just happens to be part human, part beast) always has her going to exotic places to get teeth. Yes, teeth. She does know that she can speak many languages. She has bright blue hair and her ex-boyfriend cheated on her and now wants her back. During one of her trips to get teeth from an old friend, she runs into trouble with an angel. Alekari knows that teeth trading is on the rise and is trying to stop it; even if that means roughing the teeth traders up a bit.
This book was okay. I loved the entire “I’ll kick your butt” attitude, and when her ex-boyfriend dumped her, she wasn’t all sad and mopey (like other characters…ahem…Bella). But I didn’t like the whole teeth thing. If the author had talked about a black box or something, I would have liked it more. I would recommend this book for people who love supernatural stories with romance and magical creatures.
