Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone releases in October and it is definitely one to keep your eyes open for. There has been buzz about this book since Midwinter and I have been dying to get my hands on it since the fabulous Victoria Stapleton at Little Brown told me about it. So imagine my surprise when I got an arc of it in the mail from Ingram (there was some jumpimg up and down and squeeling involved -- needless to say my staff think I'm nuts). It is everything I'd heard and so much more... interesting story, fascinating characters, outstanding writing. Put it on you to read lists now- it is definitely worth the wait.
