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 beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery 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?(less)
Hi there! I'm a writer of fantasy books for young people, but my books can be enjoyed by adults as well. My 'Dreamdark' books, Blackbringer (2007) and Silksinger (2009) are about faeries -- not dainty little flowery things, but warrior-faeries who battle devils. My first young adult book, Lips Touch, is a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award! It's creepy, sensual supernatural romance. . . about kissing. I am also an artist with a licensed gift product line called "Laini's Ladies."
The second book is titled, 'Days of Blood and Starlight' while the third is 'Dreams of Gods and Monsters.
I read a lot of books. Most are given to me by author's wanting to generate reviews, and although I really enjoy reading and writing about these book, I also want to choose books I feel like reading without being asked. That said, strangely enough most of the items on my 'Wish List' come in sets of three. That is to say trilogies. I've decided to feature these books their authors' in a series of posts and then, to post up the reviews to keep a record of my enjoyment factor as a ratio for each book of the series.
