Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Overall I was disappointed in this book. I thought the ideas were great and original but then about half way through the book became more of a teenage romance novel than an interesting and complex fantastical novel. This wouldn't have been so much of a problem (after all I loved the love story in "The Hunger Games" except that it completely took over the plot and the reader is taken through a history of the two lovers that was fairly cliche in its elements. And it ends with a cliff hanger--which I always find irritating if it seems like an obvious ploy to get you to get the next book.
