Some things are permanent.


And they cannot be changed back.

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.

Somewhere between reality and myth lies…


5 Stars

Indelible was an incredibly compelling … no … mind-blowing story, with the most fascinating mythical creatures and awesome characters!!!

Now I won’t make this a long review, because there’s not much to say because this book doesn’t need my review to tell other readers how awesome it is, once you read it you’ll just know how incredible Indelible is. One thing I would like to see in the next book is more of Stef, Joy’s older gay brother and his boyfriend James!!

So because of that, I won’t go into much detail about the story, just that I am jealous of Dawn for creating such an amazing world and such amazing characters and I want to force Dawn into giving Ink to me. Wonder if she’d take chocolate bribes?

As for the characters: I LOVE INK!!! I’m serious, I wanna pluck him out of the story and just hug him and squeeze him and just never let him go again. He’s just awesome and so sweet in his weird Scribe-kind of way. As for Joy, she reminded me soooooooooooooo much of best friend and I really liked her, also her family troubles are really relatable which makes her an even greater character. Then there’s of course Inq (Ink’s kind of “sisters), she’s just awesome sauce! She’s sneaky, funny but has that side dish of itty-bitty-evil-in-a-good-way that I love. And last but certainly not least is Monica!! She’s awesome! She actually reminds me of … well … me! LOL

Well that’s all I’m saying on this book for now. It’s amazing and I will recommend it to everyone who loves a good paranormal story with a good solid romance and swoon-worthy characters. Now I’m going to eagerly await Invisible so I can finally discover what will happen next!!


About Dawn Metcalf

The role of Dawn Metcalf will be played by the tall brunette in the off-the-shoulder, floor-length leather straitjacket. Makeup by Clinique, buckles by Jada Pinkett Smith, hair by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

I have no good excuse for the way I write. I lived in a normal, loving suburban home, studied hard, went to college, went to graduate school, got married, had babies and settled down in northern Connecticut. Despite this wholesome lifestyle, I’ve been clearly corrupted by fairy tales, puppet visionaries, British humor and graphic novels. As a result, I write dark, quirky and sometimes humorous speculative fiction.
