I thought about reviewing this, but it's just one of those books I don't think my words could do it justice. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of the most unique books I have ever come across. It's so unlike anything I've read before. I expected to mildly like it, because I tend to steer clear of angel books whenever possible, but when Jen sent it to me with a sticky note saying that I had to read it and if I didn't like it our friendship was over... well that didn't leave me much choice. Thank goodness she did that, or I would have been missing out like crazy. So instead of reviewing it, I put all my energy into showing you artistically how much I adored it.
GOODREADS DESCRIPTIONAround 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?
Here are a few reviews that pretty much say everything I would like to say.

The Bookish Babe
Good Books & Good Wine
This trailer is no joke. It took me so long to make. It took me a month just to figure out how I was going to make his wings! Sims does not have angels, so I had to get a little creative. Okay, more like a lot creative. lol. It was so worth it though. I wasn't even sure of the song choice until the trailer was made. In the end, I decided to drop my favorite band, Breaking Benjamin's, Anthem of the Angels on it.. and it just fit. :)

The one thing my trailer would have been missing was Brimstone. How could I not put HIM in this trailer? I can't draw to save my life. This problem puzzled me, so I started searching the Internet for pictures of him. I found a gorgeous drawing of him on Deviant Art.
The Artist's name is Jessica, and she kindly gave me permission to use it. Thank you so much Jessica! Isn't this drawing amazing guys? I could stare at it all day. It's exactly how I imagined him to look. If you would like to see more of her art, check out her profile. CLICK HERE
This is how I made the side of her face lighter than the other. Yay for Sim Lighting tricks. lol. I could go on and tell you all the little things I did to make this, but I don't want to bore you, so without further babbling... Here it is. I hope you all love it as much as I loved making it! :o)
