night of cake and puppets laini taylorLaini Taylor has announced a Daughter of Smoke and Bone companion novella to be released in advance of the third and final book of the series, Dreams of Gods and Monsters.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone is an epic fantasy set partly in Prague, partly in the mythical war-torn world of Eretz.  The novella, titled Night of Cake & Puppets, is the story of Zuzana and Mik’s first date and will be narrated by both characters.  Entertainment Weekly released the official description as follows:

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.

Night of Cake & Puppets will be released as a digital novella on November 26th. For more about Laini Taylor, visit her website.
