Publisher's Summary

When the gods go to war, who will stand against their divine fury?

In the thrilling conclusion to the A Fire Beneath the Skin trilogy, the enchanted kingdom of Helva faces a nightmarish future of endless bloodshed, and Rina Veraiin - a young warrior-duchess armed with mysterious, magical tattoos - must use her fantastic powers to save her home from eternal war.

As her far-flung friends scour Helva for additional tattoos to increase her formidable abilities, Rina reckons with an enigmatic death priest...the one whose contract grants her extraordinary magic but demands an awful price. When her debt comes due, can Rina make the ultimate sacrifice?

Deities clash and allies succumb as Rina strives to fulfill her obligation and confront her strange and shocking destiny. Becoming an ink mage taxed Rina's resources to their very limits; now she must become something else, something more, something awesome and terrible.

If she fails, her world will fall.

    "Holy Smack!"

    Although I wish there was more to follow, I truly enjoyed this harrowing adventure most thoroughly. It truly is a brilliant conclusion to a stunning epic. Thank you for sharing this bard's masterwork tale with us.

    "Bad ending"

    The story was good but the ending was empty. There was no closure or finesse.

    I'm a Sci-Fi Fan, during a road trip we stopped by a bookstore and I found an audiobook of L. K. Hamiltion's "Cerulean Sins" & I was hooked.

    "Fun fantasy story for driving and dishes."

    It sometimes felt like character development was either rushed or an afterthought to suit the author's plot. The world building was great, and I always appreciate the lost culture archetype.

    "Dizzy but good"

    Jumping around so much I'm dizzy. If you blink you will miss who is being discussed. The story itself isn't bad just to much jumping around. To much description in certain parts which made the story boring. I did like the end.

    "what a horrible ending"

    The end makes me regret wasting my tim we on this series. Don't bother reading the last book even if you enjoyed the others. Make something up about the characters, it will be way better than the terrible fate the author contrived. I was left angry at the end an just dumfounded at the direction the story went. AWFUL!!!!

    "Ink Mag trilogy"

    Great story through out the three books but the ending was a little abrupt. The language used WA appropriate and worked well, also the sex scenes i felt were appropriate. Overall worth a listen.

    Brilliant. Love the way they all talk like 'normal' people.
    Brilliant story... and it ended. That's so rare and very much appreciated.
    One of the very best of its genre.

    "Outstanding"

    I cannot understand the bad reviews for this book, it isn't a blockbuster but it is gripping and there are twists that you did not expect. I will remember these books fondly and don't see why you shouldn't too.
