Daughter of Smoke & Bone Chapter 37

By Laini Taylor

Chapter 37


  • Flashback redux.
  • Akiva is lying on a beach somewhere. Not on vacation. He's at war.
  • Oh, and he's dying. Don't worry; it's a flashback. So he'll be okay.
  • A chimaera with a silver censer approaches. Not just any chimaera, though: a hot one.
  • At least, so far as someone with wings and the legs of a goat can be hot.
  • This beautiful beast-babe patches up Akiva's wounds... and his heart.
  • He's in love with the enemy, he's determined to find her, and he swears to not kill any more of her people.
  • Things don't get any more romantic than that.
