In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown 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,
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?
My thoughts: This book was so interesting and different. I was immediately drawn in to the story and had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. The characters were so unique and at times grotesque, but totally captivating. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series...Days of Blood and Starlight
