Daughter of Smoke & Bone Chapter 31

By Laini Taylor

Chapter 31


  • Where did we leave off... oh, that's right, Akiva is standing over Karou with her knives in his hands.
  • She gets ready to stab him with a pencil and he backs off, saying, "I didn't mean to frighten you." (31.3). He just really likes the knives.
  • Right.
  • Almost like they remind him of something... or someone...
  • It's early, so they both go pee-pee (yes, angels urinate) and fly off to the bakery.
  • Yes, they literally fly there. Remember, Karou can fly now. We are so jealous.
  • They buy some yummy bread and fly to the top of the cathedral to eat it and watch the sun rise.
  • In between munches, Akiva tells her that the price for wishes is pain.
  • Gasp. Good thing we're not eating too, or we might have choked on our own bread.
