Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

17-year-old art student Karou is seemingly living an idyllic life in
the breathtakingly beautiful Prague.  But her life is much more than meets the eye; she has a job that her art student friends couldn’t begin to imagine.  Karou travels the globe collecting teeth for a monster with ties to another world.  In exchange for these teeth, she is given wishes.  But Karou would continue to do this job even without payment.  The monster, or chimera, sending her on these assignments is as close to a parent as Karou has ever known.  As the story moves along, Karou encounters an angel and begins to develop feelings for him.  Angels are the mortal enemies of chimera and before she knows it Karou is swept into the ancient and deadly rivalry between angels and devils. This is the first in what is sure to be an outstanding trilogy!
