Daughter of Smoke & Bone Chapter 35

By Laini Taylor

Chapter 35

The Tongue of Angels

  • Before Akiva can reveal to Karou who she is, his siblings Hazael and Liraz, show up.
  • They're mad because Akiva keeps sneaking away without telling them where he's going. Um, okay, moms, we guess he's not allowed to have a life.
  • Akiva tries to evade his siblings' questions about Karou, whether or not she's human, what's up with her hands, etc.
  • Finally, Karou's had enough of them talking about her as if she's not there.
  • "If you want want to see my hands, all you have to do is ask" (35.54), she says.
