Publisher's Summary

Buyer beware....

Looking for a tattoo - and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop of true love, or even a hex on an ex? Head to the quiet and mysterious Gage, the best skin artist in town. Using unique potions - a blend of extraordinary ingredients and special inks - to etch the right symbol, he can fulfill any heart's desire. But in a place like Low Town, where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires happily walk among humanity, everything has its price.

No one knows that better than Gage. Turning his back on his own kind, he left the magical Ivory Tower where cruel witches and warlocks rule, a decision that cost him the right to practice magic. And if he disobeys, his punishment - execution - will be swift.

Though he's tried to fly under the radar, Gage can't hide from powerful warlocks who want him dead - or the secrets of his own past. But with the help of his friends, Trixie, a gorgeous elf who hides her true identity, and a hulking troll named Bronx, Gage might just make it through this enchanted world alive.

    "If your into Sci-fy & tattoos get this book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I got a kick out of this book. I love tattoos, getting them & looking at them on others as well as sci-fy books so this was right up my ally. I am a big believer that the tattoo you get should have meaming to you and can grant you strength/power even if it is only psychological, this book follows that idea. If you have read the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne and liked them then you'll most likely enjoy this book.

    "Badass with a lisp?"
    What disappointed you about Angel's Ink?

    The story was fine, I suppose, but there should be a label on books that says girl porn!! Why are so many books in the sci-fi/fantasty genre just blah romances?


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jocelynn Drake? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I imagine that all her other books are similar, and have the same weak romance plots, and characters that see ONLY ONE way things can be done.....


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Urie?

    I dont know- someone who didnt lisp, and could manage a broader range of voices; voices that were not so annoying


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If you are a woman, and are looking for romance, with a half way decent plot; this might be for you. If you are not, this book is not for you.


    Any additional comments?

    Ugh.....

    "Loved the narration"
    Which character – as performed by Michael Urie – was your favorite?

    Gage was my favorite character narrated by Michael Urie. I love the sarcasm.


    Any additional comments?

    What I loved most about this was the narration. The story was a pretty good one, but I felt it dragged on at times. But, I really liked the narration by Michael Urie. I thought the female voice of Trixie sounded like Adam Sandler in the movie Jack and Jill and it made me giggle. And the character Gideon sounded like Clint Eastwood, but I loved loved loved the sarcasm of Gage that was captured. I was pleasantly surprised when I googled Michael Urie and saw it was the guy from Ugly Betty. I loved that show and him on it, and I love his narration. I will buy any book he narrates.

    I don't really have any one favourite thing about this story, I loved the whole thing and can't wait for the next instalment.

    Any additional comments?

    I bought this because I like the narrator and I figured it would be a simple story to pass the time. It was so much more than that. Unpredictable , unique and refreshing . I was forced to reconsider this author as a seriously good storyteller. Nicely done

    Story
    "Worst Narrator for a sorry story"
    Would you try another book from Jocelynn Drake and/or Michael Urie?

    The narrator made this less than stellar book worse that it had to be. If you like someone who sounds like he is always angry, just fed up with everyone he comes in contact with and has no talent for different voices....then you will like this one. OMG....he made what was supposed to be a sexy little imp speak with a lisp. I'll let you judge for yourself but I was very disappointed and it possibly could have been a good book, but it wasn't a good audible.


    What could Jocelynn Drake have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There was just one disaster after another. No respite. DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA and NO story!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get someone with a range of voices and characters.


    What character would you cut from Angel's Ink?

    The narrator!!!!!
