Smoke and Bone…Fire and Thorns

Different worlds, different time, different girls, but two amazing fantasy stories (with similar titles).

The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Karou is a mystery, she’s a girl with blue hair who likes to draw monsters.  Well to everyone else they’re monsters but to Karou they’re her family.  While Karou is human she has been raised by a race of beings called chimaera.  When a mysterious meeting with a beautiful winged creature almost causes her death, Karou wonders what is really going on in the world of the chimaera and how is she involved?

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Elisa, a princess, is also the chosen one, selected as a baby for a sacred duty.  Unsure what that means for her future, Elisa must focus on the present and her arranged marriage to the king of a neighboring land.  With war looming Elisa must discover her magic and her role in forming an alliance and defeating their common enemy.  A stunning and complex fantasy about finding your place in the world and discovering who you are.
