RATING : 4.5 ACHING AKIVA STARS!!

Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

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 ?
 
BOOK REVIEW:



From a shop in Prague ,

Through doors to Elsewhere,

Travels an artist named Karou,

 For Brimstone errands she must run,

They are often dangerous and not for a fool,

Nor are they fun.


Karou draws monsters that are real,

She was raised from a babe by them,

Family they feel,

The Chimera are part of her life,

There will come a time for her to decide,

Fight or flight.


Secrets are kept from her,

Heartache is around the corner,

For there is a boy named Akiva,

He is a mystery to her heart,

What side will she take,

What feels right?


Curiosity killed the cat,

It will also get you thrown out on your ass,

A beautiful story is told,

As the scenic pages unfold,

More and more , *wink* is revealed,

Can love be healed?




Once Upon a time an angel and a devil fell in love,

It did not end well.

"Tell me!" she screamed

“I’m sorry,” he whispered,

As their love reeled.
