all-blue eyes and eight-fingered hands

'You're Lorun's new marriage, are you?' horny-puss asked nastily. I could just tell her finger-long nails were more than mere Jang decoration.

'Oh, I thought you were still the last one,' said another female, with all-blue eyes and eight-fingered hands - even more nail danger. Well, honestly.

'Sorry,' I said sweetly, 'I'm the new one with the quick temper and the uncontrollable homicidal tendencies.'

-- Drinking Sapphire Wine by Tanith Lee

How could one not like a book that has passages such as this?
