Around the world, black hand prints 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 actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored 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?


I've been wanting to read this book. I heard amazing things. I was so excited to see this book in my school library. So I decided to pick it up and see why everyone was loving this book so much. Did I tell you that the cover is so gorgeous?

I got hooked on the first page. I loved how dark it was. But I don't know where it went wrong. It started getting boring. I really wanted to love this book. I tried reading a couple more chapters but it didn't change my mood. I'm disappointed that I didn't love this book. I didn't finish this book. I was halfway done with the book and decided to stop. In the future, I want to pick this book up and try reading it again.

I would recommend you reading this book this month since it is October. You might love it. Everyone else did. It just wasn't the type of book for me. Happy reading!
