About the Book:Buyer beware . . .

Looking for a tattoo—and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop of true love, or even a hex on an ex? Head to the quiet and mysterious Gage, the best skin artist in town. Using unique potions—a blend of extraordinary ingredients and special inks—to etch the right symbol, he can fulfill any heart’s desire. But in a place like Low Town, where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires happily walk among humanity, everything has its price.

No one knows that better than Gage. Turning his back on his own kind, he left the magical Ivory Tower where cruel witches and warlocks rule, a decision that cost him the right to practice magic. And if he disobeys, his punishment—execution—will be swift.

Though he’s tried to fly under the radar, Gage can’t hide from powerful warlocks who want him dead—or the secrets of his own past. But with the help of his friends, Trixie, a gorgeous elf who hides her true identity, and a hulking troll named Bronx, Gage might just make it through this enchanted world alive.

First thought when finished: Angel’s Ink is my kind of Urban Fantasy: a little love, a little humor, and a whole lot of kick ass!

What I thought of the story: Angel’s Ink was a fast paced story full of heart. I loved watching Gage get out of all his predicaments with his friends by him at every turn. He did have a penchant for trouble but I think that the part I loved most was that it all came from him being a loyal and good person!

What I thought of the characters: Bronx, Trixie, Sophie, and Gage are all fantastic! My favorite character was Bronx, I am always a sucker for the loyal and brave sidekick. I also really can’t wait to learn more about Gideon and personally I hope he is in the series more in the 2nd book.

Final thought: Angel’s Ink was a fantastic beginning to a series that I hope continues for a long time!

    I haven’t heard of this one but I like the sound of it. I’m still not as comfortable with Urban fantasy as other genres but I love exploring so I’ll keep it in mind.

    Ummmmmm yes please. This sounds so good! I really enjoyed Jocelynn Drakes series about the firestarter (the title escapes me), and I was completely unaware she had a new series coming out. A little love, a little humor and a whole lot of kickass? GET ON MY KINDLE ANGEL’S INK!
