Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

The prose is lush and romantic, and the descriptions of different settings is exceptional. I really enjoyed reading this book. The story and characters are extremely unique and would probably be a little too weird for me if written by another author, but Taylor makes the weirdness of the characters and story work out extremely well somehow. Taylor has a serious mastering of the written word here. I have already recommended this book to several of my friends, and I would definitely recommended others at least checking it out.
