Night of Cake and Puppets

Night of Cake and Puppets - Laini Taylor & Jim di Bartolo

"In this stand-alone companion to the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone series comes the story of Mik and Zuzana's fantastical first date—as a gorgeously illustrated gift edition with bonus content included."

Laini Taylor fans will require no introductions to this book.  I purchased this on kindle a long while ago and loved every page, but the published hard back is SO MUCH COOLER!!!  If you ever wanted to see exactly how Zuzanna and Mik were envisaged, wish - granted.  For new to Laini readers, start with Daughter of Smoke and Bones first, and then hit this one up!

Zuzanna is an impressive character.  Sharp, witty and immensely loveable.  Her wooing of Mik makes for compelling and often hilarious reading.  Night of Cake and Puppets is definitely the 'curl up in front of the fire with hot chocolate' kind of read.  It's short (novella length) but packed with detail, and Laini's beautiful, lyrical writing.  You'll fall in love with Zuzanna and Mik, both.

If you're deep into the series, but need to come up for air after all the heavy-going stuff, you need Night of Cake and Puppets, STAT.  Get amongst it.
