Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine
a new way of living - one without massacres and torn throats and
bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children
ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and
Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.
This was not that world.

It took me a while to get back to this series. the first book 'Daughter of Smoke and Bone' was stunning. The world building extraordinary from the start. The concept of the story, a girl who is somehow connected to demonic creatures and an angel, was crafted together so beautifully I was gripped. I loved the romance, I loved Karou and I wanted to read more.
