Teaser Tuesday with Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I've heard a lot of great things about Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, and so far, they're all true. This is one of the most unique stories I've read in a while. I love the cast of characters and the strange fairy tale that Laini weaves.
Here's your teaser:
It seemed impossible that this was the final moment of her life. She cocked her head to the side, desperately searching his features for some hint of... soul... and then, she saw it. (page 97)
