Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.
Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future...and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.
This cover is what first grabbed my attention with this book and then the synopsis sounded interested. The story as a whole fell flat for me as a whole unfortunately.
The main female protagonist was a whiny, wimp and she drove me crazy. Ink was not much better, I also felt like the story was not explained well. There was a lot happening but not a lot of explanation as to why it was happening or how Ink basically became Ink.
This book took me quite awhile to get through and I will not continue on with the series.
