Daughter of Smoke & Bone (#1)

I finished Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy yesterday.  It was emotional.  Needless to say, I felt the need to vent my feelings about it and so here we are!  (Mild spoilers for book one.)

Bitter lies

Sweet lips

Feet scramble across the courtyard

Their hands clasp together

Bodies and souls joined forever

A snap

A betrayal

The wishbone is in two

He cries out

Her head rolls away

Hearts hardened

Passions shushed

A flash of azure cracks his mending walls

Is it her?

Can it be?

Or is it a false hope?

Their souls say otherwise

A whisper

A touch

Like magnets, it cannot be denied

But love and life is never simple

Burning hands

Fiery eyes

A scorched landscape

Screams, cries

The stench of death’s victory

Teeth, teeth, so many teeth

Hope is magic at the brink of the end
