If you like fantasy (and face it, this is SL, who doesn’t?) then you must not miss the novel Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I always like a good fantasy novel, and one that has a decent romance in it just adds to the goodness. However, this one deals with it all in quite a twisty-turny way, and I was conflicted all the way through with how creepy it was and at the same time not wanting to put it down. This book came to mind when I saw Ikon Innovia’s new Horizon line of eyes. This line from the book popped into my head:

Black greasepaint made a mask around her eyes, which Akiva could see were large–brown and bright, vivid and sorrowful.

-Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone p.246.

Now aren’t they just?


It goes on for a bit about how lovely this girl is, bat wings and horns and hooves notwithstanding, so I turned to one of Hush Darkrose’s new skins to achieve said loveliness.

If he ignored the fact of her bloodied blade and her closely fitted black armor, her devilish wings and horns, if he just focused on her face—so unexpectedly lovely—she looked like a girl, a girl who had found a young man dying on the beach.

-Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone p.246.

I can see how this girl might be a bit scary as well:
