Into The Book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

8 Nov

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor evokes so many beautiful landscapes, especially those in Prague. So I thought I’d gather a collection of images of the actual locations described in the book. Get ready to bask in some Gothic architectural beauty!

Below is the stunning loveliness that is The Charles Bridge: a medieval bridge in Prague where a lot of the scenes in the book take place. From Zouzana’s epic marionette show, to Akiva’s fight between his Seraph siblings. It’s pretty easy to see why this gorgeous location played such a large role in the story.

You can totally picture some angels going to battle here can’t you?

Here are some images of Prague in Winter (when the book takes place) and the incredible streets that make up this fairy tale city.

 

 

Laini Taylor does such an excellent job of describing the heat, the rich scents and sounds of Marrakesh that you hardly need visual accompaniment but just in case…Here’s where Karou goes to meet Izil to pick up teeth and secrets and here’s where she first spots Akiva!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now Elsewhere…is whole other story. As for now, you’ll have to use your imagination!

 

Happy Reading!
