Khristine Hvam portrays a confident, inquisitive, and grounded young woman who lives an ordinary life by day but a far from ordinary life at night. What does Karou, a 17-year-old girl with naturally blue hair and tattooed palms, do when she’s not in art school in Prague? She travels through portals, running errands for the chimaera (half-human, half not) she calls family. As Karou confronts her heritage, Hvam presents the story’s adventure, romance, and humor with a smooth grace. Hvam maneuvers her way through the fantastical characters smoothly, sharpening the contrast between ordinary and extraordinary events. As the first installment in a young adult urban fantasy series, this book introduces a host of characters and mysteries for further exploration.
