Now that Universal has a release date set for the long delayed The Seventh Son (which they inherited from Warner Bros. when Legendary Pictures moved away from the studio), they're looking at getting another fantasy young adult adaptation off the ground. THR has word that Universal is adapting Laini Taylor's first book in a fantasy trilogy, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, published in September of 2011.

The book has plenty of accolades including being named among Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2011, Huffington Post's Top 10 Young Adult Book of 2011 and also one of The New York Times' Notable Children’s Books of 2011. Here's the official synopsis of the story: Around the world, »
