Ink Exchange (Paperback)
|Author: Melissa Marr|
|The author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Wicked Lovely" continues her tales of Faery in a dark, ravishing story of temptation and consequences, and of heroism when least expected.|
From the Publisher:
Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow.
Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her own life.
The tattoo does bring changes—not the kind Leslie has dreamed of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic. Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its allures, and helpless to withstand its perils. . . .
Fans of Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle Trilogy or the Modern Tale of Faerie trilogy by Holly Black will love the dark, intense world of author Melissa Marr. This companion novel to bestseller WICKED LOVELY follows Leslie, a troubled mortal teen who unwittingly falls into the clutches of Irial, King of the Dark Court. A tattoo whose ink has been mingled with his blood threatens to make Leslie a slave for eternity. A friend and protector, Niall, secretly loves Leslie, but the only way to save her could bring doom to them both. Filled with faerie lore, twisted love, and entrancing villains, this young adult fantasy is a page-turner.
