Full Cover - Hardback

Daughter of Smoke and Bone will launch on September 29th and is the first in a trilogy of. The book tells the story of an angel who fell in love with a devil. It did not end well.

Around the world, black handprints 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 otherworldly war.

Meet Kaoru. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters and demons that delight and enthral those around her; 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 colour.

Her life straddles two worlds: the human and a place that is Elsewhere. She has never really known which one is her true home, but now the doors to Elsewhere closing . . .Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out..

Fans of well written urban fantasy, this book is for you.  It has great characters, an amazing setting (Prague and ... other places), action, adventure, the battle between good and evil, the blurring of lines between good and evil, angels, fallen angels, devils, creatures from mythology, a heroine you fall for 100% and a story you will yourself to be true.  It's been a long time since a book has stayed with me this long.  I cannot wait to share it wtih you.

Pre-order it, you won't regret it.
