Currently Reading #1: Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr

I've decided to start a new segment for this site. Every time I start reading a new book, I will post all the information connected with it:

Praise for the Book

For this first ever Currently Reading Post, I present:

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Court 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. . . .

Praise for the Novel:

"As the sequel to Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange is even more compelling. Their [the characters’] fierce, sometimes despairing search for their true selves gives Ink Exchange its sinister power." (Washington Post Book World )

"Another highly addictive read...Compulsive enough to give the Twilight series a run for its money, and dizzyingly more sinister." ( Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Older readers of fantasy will be drawn in by the dark supernatural element and surprised by a theme that reinforces the affirmation of human identity and self-reliance.” Kliatt

“. . . impossible to put down” (School Library Journal (Starred review))

“The sexual tension is subtle but makes the story most appropriate for high school students. Teens Will appreciate this title more after listening to/reading the first volume. Twilight fans will enjoy this dark, brooding audiobook” (School Library Journal (on the audio))

"This dark fantasy about survival and transformation is as mesmerizing as its urban faery subjects." (Booklist)
