In this new stand-alone novella from New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor comes the story of a romantic, funny, and fantastical first date. 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.

A sweet, flirty, witty, quotable little e-book novella; this is Laini Taylor at her best. The sizzling chemistry in this had me beaming. Winter in Prague has never felt so magic-spun, like icing sugar on a dark chocolate torte. Carpe noctem!

I loved being able to get back into the daughter of smoke and bone world, but i also loved how this was a lot more fluffy and adorable. Don't get me wrong it still had magic and the creep factor, but it defiantly didn't have killing or wars in it

If you are a fan of Zana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone you will go "Yay!" for this ebook. It is only about how she and Mik got together and mostly takes places on one wintry night in Prague. If you aren't already a fan of Laini Taylor start with D of S & B. What are you waiting for? Get started!
