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.
I so needed this good laugh. Zuzana is awesome in so many different levels. I am so glad and happy that Ms. Taylor picked her to write a novella about. As we all know, Laini Taylor’s writing is amazing, she never disappoints. Her words choices and description of her story are incredible.

Story wise, this is the story of Zuzana & Mik, which couldn't be any more perfect for each other. They are funny, love art and believe in magic. I love the chemistry between the two of them. Zuzana is so funny and to see how far she is willing to go to get what she wants the most is admirable.

This novella is perfect. We are able to get an inside on the start of a beautiful romance and I couldn't get enough of it. Is fast paced, the author give us the right information and enough details to create the world in our heads. I love Laini Taylor’s vivid imagination; she is able to write in a way that transports her readers to a different dimension.

The story was short, sweet, funny and romantic. If you are a fan of The Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, you will definitely love this novella. Check it out!
