There's so much history in Prague. I went during winter, and everything was cold and snowy and beautiful! Lately I've read two books which have reminded me of the beauty and intrigue about Prague...
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - I really adored the first three quarters of Daughter of Smoke and Bone! There was something really magical about Laini Taylor's writing style as she introduced us to Karou and the unusual companions as she tried to combine her life as an art student in Prague with the more fantastic life she leads as the helper of a Wishmonger who deals in teeth and wishes.
I really couldn't see a better setting for this story and these characters than Prague. I felt like everything just made sense. I love books where the setting just blends into as well as compliments a story so well as it did with Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman -I cannot say enough good things about this book! I loved it in its entirety! It completely blew me away with the detail and the layering to the story, the characters, the story. I really, really loved it.
I hope it isn't too much of a spoiler to let you all know that at some point in the book, the action heads over to Prague to unravel some pretty big mysteries. It was wonderful to read of Nora and her friends race around Prague, trying to decipher centuries-old clues in order to track down more information on secret societies and religious sects and the murderer of a close friend. It felt tense and emotional and really fascinating. Especially the parts to do with the golem, which I didn't know a great deal about beforehand. Reading The Book of Blood and Shadow really made me want to wander around Prague more, check out the sights and the history and the culture.
Have you read any books that took place in Prague?
