The Asylum Tales
The dark and dangerous follow-up that continues the adventures of a magical tattoo artist begun in Angel's Ink
In a world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you need an edge. Looking for a little love? Need some luck? Desperate for revenge? Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of ingredients and ink to achieve your heart's desire. One tattoo is all it takes. But remember, everything has its price. . . .
Gage learned that lesson long ago, in ways he'd rather not remember. But the cruel and powerful wizards in the dreaded Ivory Towers he escaped aren't about to let him forget. Though Gage has managed to stay out of sight, he can't outrun the past forever.
The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to punish him for his transgressions. Too bad if innocent humans and monsters-entire cities-get in the way. They will quell a nascent magical uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they have to find him . . .
I gave this book
Fabulous! Dead Man's Deal by Jocelynn Drake delves deeper into all things Gage and the world that surrounds him. This second installment in The Asylum Tales gives readers an in depth look into Gage and his history. Elements in the story that were but a haze in the first book come into focus and allow readers to connect with the characters in a completely new light. Players from the first book will show new facets into their personalities whose surface was only skimmed upon. Fast paced action accompanies this story as Gabe shows his deep feelings for his family. Feelings that will drive Gabe to do what ever is necessary to save and protect them. I highly recommend this book.
