I give it - 4/5
My review - I usually don't use gifs in my reviews but I need to use one as the end of the book had me like-
Like it was the most amazing ending to a book and what's exciting is that this is the start of a trilogy. I loved Ink by Alice Broadway. I was lucky enough to hear her talk about it at the Scholastic event and just the plot made me pick up the book straight away and then I was gripped and so intrigued about where this story was going and what was happening.
All in all it was brilliant. Alice is a fantastic writer and I believe this is the start of an amazing trilogy that I think everyone is going to love.
In this world you are marked for every significant moment in your life. As someone with tattoos I was instantly drawn to the plot as I wanted to know what a world like this would be like. Leora's father has recently died and when you die you get turned into a skin book so everyone can see and read about your life-if you where good. But something has happened, so pieces are missing and parts have been altered. Leora has to find out what has been going on and what her father has been hiding from her. Does it have anything to do with the blanks on the outskirts? Leora is going to find out a lot more about her life that she didn't even know.
If you love fantasy you will adore this book. It was really fun and the twists in this book where just so crazy good. I can't wait to see where Alice takes this trilogy. A brilliant debut that was phenomenal.
