Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

Karou is a young lady who was raised by monsters whom she loves very much and would do anything to protect. She is an art student and in her spare time, she draws but the rest of her time is basically running dangerous errands collecting teeth for her family. She doesn't know what the teeth are for but does it any way.

The only father she knows is called the Wish Monger; who in exchange for the teeth, gives people wishes. One day while out on a run for him, Karou gets into a fight with an angelm who she finds out later is at war with her family.
