Daughter of Smoke & Bone  - Laini Taylor I might change this rating after I think about it a bit. Great first half, but then the pacing bogged down; the last 1/4 to 1/3 of the book is a big long flashback that puts the book squarely into straight fantasy - not one of my favorite genres and certainly not what I was looking for or expecting out of this book. The world-building was great, though, and I loved the character of Karou. Pity we didn't get more of her in the book.
