Synopsis

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. . . .

Youth Services Book Review

Similar to Holly Black, Marr uses the perfect combination of dark paranormal fantasy and romance to create a tale that will appeal to fans of the Twilight saga looking to fill the void following its conclusion.

Beyond Books

I was sadly disappointed in her second book, though set in the same town and same world, the characters in Ink Exchange were nowhere near as likable as in the first book.
