Publisher's Summary

Jack's best friend, Charlie, has always been effortlessly cool. When Charlie wakes up one day and finds a mysterious, moving black tattoo on his back, it's a clear sign that he's even cooler than Jack thought. To top it off, Charlie has also gained super powers. Or has he?

Jack soon learns the terrifying truth: Charlie's incredible powers come from an age-old demon called the Scourge, who is using Charlie to bring about its evil master plan.

When the Scourge vanishes with Charlie, Jack and Esme, a girl with super powers of her own, follow their friend from the streets of London into Hell itself, where they face horrors that may well cost them their lives.

    "Vanhelsing"

    Being an avid reader of both the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre and a High School English teacher, I am excited by Sam Enthoven's book. It is an engaging tale that even non-readers will be hard pressed to put down. Interesting, empathetic characters to which teens can relate, fast paced action scenes, delightfully wicked bad guys and a vision of hell and its creatures worthy of Simon R.Green. My particular favorite was the regurgitating bat like creatures that are more than what they seem. The main characters Charlie, Jack and Esme survive their trip to hell, save the world and even manage to make some interesting new friends in the process.

    "FUN!"

    The Black Tattoo is a fun, rollicking adventure tale. The action and imagery is very well described and there are parts that are laugh-out-loud funny. The narration is a joy to hear and the production values are crisp and clear. There are parts that are a bit slow but they don't last very long and you can tell that they've ended because suddenly you're laughing on the bus and people are staring at you! Recommended for ages 12 and up due to the violence- lots of fighting in this one!
