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?


Amber I do! XP I read it before this, it's about a human girl working for demons but angels get involved...it's a good story.

The ending is a killer... -.-

Emy (emypt) | 2 comments This book has proved for me to be one of those that haunts you long after you've finished it... I want to read the next one badly, but I'm going to wait now to make sure that any others are published too and then binge!

I love what I have read so far but I am not that far into the book..I will definitely let you know about it once I am completely done.


Ashley (ashsweet12) | 18 comments I enjoyed this book alot (: But like others said the ending is a killer !!! But whenever the second comes out i will be sure to check it out :D


Karina It started off really great...got a little bored for a while...but things are starting to pick up, so hopefully I end up liking it.


Karina Just finished this. It wasnt really what I was expecting but it was great and loved the characters.

The frexing ending! Made me want to rip the book in half, throw it out the window and let it drown in the rain. Cant wait for the next one (:

Haha Dramatic! I love the word Frex and greenie (Maze Runner) Why do books have the best languages!


Karina Haha I know, I would never really do that. It was just one of those ending that leave you really frustrated and wanting the next book right away so you can know what will happen.
I have no idea but I love it!


Amber The book was different than what I expected but I enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one.

Is this worth reading?


Caitlin (elspethgordie) Scott wrote: "Is this worth reading?"

YES. it's such a gripping storyline, it doesn't drag on, and really enjoyable :)


Karina I loved the main character. I was honestly expecting a shy brunett or a perfect blonde...instead she was an artist with blue hair and tattoos (:

Sounds a bit like Tris from Divergent.

I am going to read this one soon! Has anyone read the sequel?


Karina No, but I really need it :(

I started this one today and it seems strange but good.


Karina I thought this one to be pretty original and different. I need to read the next one and I heard that there isn't much romance in the next one so I think I might love it more.
