"And just like that they were two people sitting at a table regarding each other shyly through a wisp of tea steam.
"Inside a dream.
"Within a lost city.
"In the shadow of an angel.
"At the brink of calamity."

A wonderfully crafted world with atmosphere and mythology. A pair of admirable protagonists. A plot full of constant surprises. Language worth savoring. Deeply felt emotions.

If only I had noticed it does not stand alone and ends on a cliffhanger.

Excellent fairy tale fantasy.

Brilliant and fantastic! After a few chapters, this was a book I simply could not put down and only wanted to devour more and more. The depth of imagination captured within the pages of this book was profound and I found the world to be so beautifully crafted; it was easy to lose yourself in such wonders. I was only disappointed to not be able to start reading the next instalment straight away – torture! This was the first book I have read of Laini’s and I am looking forward to exploring her other novels in the hopes they too will be an amazing journey like this one has been.

One of the most beautifully written and imaginative books I've ever read. Other commenters stated that they felt the book was slow in the beginning, but I was hooked from first to last word without any thought to the story not moving quickly enough. I found every detail incredibly absorbing and the world the author created so stunning. I am so excited that there is a sequel in the works. Don't hesitate to read this book.

What a gorgeous world Laini Taylor has built around the amazing character, Lazlo Strange! Tragic histories, difficult lives, uncertain futures and love are woven intricately together in the city of Weep. Lucinda LOVED this YA Fantasy, and can't wait for the next in the series! Of course, who doesn't love a good underdog story, when searching for a hero ...?

Intriguing concepts and story but some times slow and disorienting when switching points of view. Curious to find out what happens next...

This was my first time reading a book by Laini Taylor and I was impressed! She has a beautiful writing style and all of her characters, even those we aren't positioned to like, have depth. I really can't wait for the next one.

Note: Story does start a little slow and there are some areas where the author might have cut down on text without affecting the story. But I'm really not complaining.

I love this author. But this book seemed a little slow at the beginning of the story. When I read to around 200 pages I did not want to put the book down. I needed to know more about the magical city of Weep.

Laini Taylor has complete control over the written word and weaves her magic yet again with her newest fantasy novel. Amazing world-building; characters you can't but help cheer for and cry over; and a story the unfolds at a near-perfect pace. If you enjoyed Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" trilogy, then you'll love this one too.

One can't be irredeemable who shows reverence for books.
