Summary:

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 grown 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?

    I love the narrator of this book. She has a very nice delicate voice. This book is AHHHHHHHmazing. It is well written and i love the plot. It does make me tear up sometimes and that is how i know it is a good book.

    A richly-imagined fantasy world holds interest, and the characters are appealing/interesting for the most part. Annoying that it doesn't stand alone; there is no resolution, it ends abruptly to set up a sequel, which always feels unfair.

    It's been awhile since a book has really captured me. I fell in love with the characters and the story is so original! Can't wait for the third one to come out.
