In the gorgeously illustrated edition NIGHT OF CAKE AND PUPPETS, a night only hinted at in the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE trilogy is brought to life: the magical first date of Zuzana and Mik. This is the perfect love story for fans of the series and new readers alike.

**********

Petite though she may be, Zuzana is not known for timidity. Her best friend, Karou, calls her 'rabid fairy', her 'voodoo eyes' are said to freeze blood, and even her older brother fears her wrath. But when it comes to the simple matter of talking to Mik, or 'Violin Boy', her courage deserts her. Now, enough is enough. Zuzana is determined to meet him, and she has a fistful of magic and a plan. It's a wonderfully elaborate treasure hunt of a plan that will take Mik all over Prague on a cold winter's night before finally leading him to the treasure: herself!

Violin Boy's not going to know what hit him.

Praise for Night of Cake and Puppets

  • I like to spread the word when I come across a book that excites me. . . I'm all fired up about it. Thank you, Ms. Taylor, for a thrilling couple of days. I am in your debt. (Warning readers: this is one of those series that will have you tearing at your hair and gnashing your teeth waiting for the next instalment. Be prepared.) - Stephanie Meyer on DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT

  • WOW. I wish I had written this book. - Patrick Rothfuss on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE

  • DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is that rare beast: a novel that takes the familiar and makes it appear startling and new. Taylor has embraced the mythology of angels and reworked it in an extraordinary form, so that by the end of this lyrical, haunting book, I wanted to believe in the existence of these violent, tormented beings. I can hardly wait for the next installment. - John Connolly on DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE

  • Heartbreak, war and magic spells abound in this captivating romance . . . There's slaying aplenty, but Taylor mitigates the violence with an unquenchable belief in the restorative powers of love and hope - and magic. - Marie Claire on DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS

  • This is Romeo and Juliet on a sprawling fantasy stage. - Guardian on DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT

Hi! I write fantasy books. My latest is STRANGE THE DREAMER, about a young librarian, a mythic lost city, and the half-human children of murdered gods. Check it out :-) Before that I wrote the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE trilogy, which has been translated into 32 languages. It's about a blue-haired art student raised by monsters, a broken angel, and a war that has raged for 1000 years in another world. I also wrote LIPS TOUCH: THREE TIMES, which was a National Book Award finalist, and the DREAMDARK books. As well as various short stories and novellas.

Thanks for reading!!
