    Great choices! I just finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone – what a wild ride! Loved the Prague setting as it happens to be my favourite city in the world! I just finished the first Hero’s Guide . . . as part of my Must Read in 2013 list (squeezed it in 45 minutes before midnight!) My son loves this series! Happy Reading in 2014!
