“It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such. The dragon, you know, hunkered in the village devouring maidens, heard the townsfolk cry ‘Monster!’ and looked behind him.”
I absolutely LOVED the world of Daughter of Smoke & Bone. It is steeped in fantasy, occupied by angels and chimera, and traversed by a mysterious art student in Prague with hair that grows blue and a necklace of beads that grant wishes.
Recommendation: Read this if you are looking to be swept away by an immersive story with a unique take on an Angels & Demons. Read this if you dream about exploring Prague.
