This little novella is part of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor. You can read my review about Daughter of Smoke and Bone here and my review of Days of Blood and Starlight here. This little book came out a couple months ago and I hadn’t read it yet. Then my good friend, who initially recommended the trilogy to me, told me I just had to read it! I’m so glad I did! Here’s the Goodreads summary:
“In Night of Cake & Puppets, Taylor brings to life a night only hinted at in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy—the magical first date of fan-favorites Zuzana and Mik. Told in alternating perspectives, it’s the perfect love story for fans of the series and new readers alike. Petite though she may be, Zuzana is not known for timidity. Her best friend, Karou, calls her “rabid fairy,” her “voodoo eyes” are said to freeze blood, and even her older brother fears her wrath. But when it comes to the simple matter of talking to Mik, or “Violin Boy,” her courage deserts her. Now, enough is enough. Zuzana is determined to meet him, and she has a fistful of magic and a plan. It’s a wonderfully elaborate treasure hunt of a plan that will take Mik all over Prague on a cold winter’s night before finally leading him to the treasure: herself! Violin Boy’s not going to know what hit him.”
Loved this little novella!
I can’t get enough of Taylor’s imagery and way with words. I knew I loved her writing, but I’d forgotten just how much. This felt like such a tease since we still have to wait for the last in the trilogy to come out.
