Daughter of Smoke and Boneby Laini Taylor

Karou, a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague, fills her sketchbooks with monsters, speaks several languages, and has bright blue hair (naturally). Raised by a family of chimaerae (the monsters she draws), she has had an unconventional, supernatural upbringing. She works for Brimstone collecting human and animal teeth from all over the world. Through a series of events, she meets Akiva, gets drawn into a 1,000 year war, and tries to figure out who (and what) she really is. This is a romantic and action-filled fantasy.
