Daughter of Smoke & Bone  - Laini Taylor 4.0 Stars
So close to 4.5 or maybe even 5 stars, but I got bored near the end where there was a convergence of the past and the present. The pacing was really hitting a peak for me when all of the sudden I was getting backstory and it ruined my momentum.
Don't get me wrong - still loved the story and cannot wait to pick up the next one, [b:Days of Blood & Starlight|12812550|Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #2)|Laini Taylor|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1337964452s/12812550.jpg|17961723].
