DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE by Laini Taylor | PuppetryWalking to school over the snow-mufed cobbles, Karou had no sinister premonitions about the day. It seemed like just another Monday, innocent but for its essential Mondayness, not to mention its Januaryness. It was cold, and it was dark in the dead of winter the sun didnt rise until eight but it was also lovely. The falling snow and the early hour conspired to paint Prague ghostly, like a tintype photograph, all silver and haze. On the riverfront thoroughfare, trams and buses roared past, grounding the day in the twenty-rst century, but on the quieter lanes, the wintry peace might have hailed from another time. Snow and stone and ghostlight, Karous own footsteps and the feather of steam from her coffee mug, and she was alone and adrift in mundane thoughts: school, errands. The occasional cheek-chew of bitterness when a pang of heartache intruded, as pangs of heartache will, but she pushed them aside, resolute, ready to be done with all that.

She wasnt a smokf, the air seemed to gather around her like held breath, and she barely escapes his sword by fleeing into the workshop through a portal door.
