Publisher's summary

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow.

Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her own life.

The tattoo does bring changes - not the kind Leslie has dreamed of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic. Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its allures, and helpless to withstand its perils.

Critic reviews

"Another highly addictive read....Compulsive enough to give the Twilight series a run for its money, and dizzyingly more sinister." ( Publishers Weekly)
"This dark fantasy about survival and transformation is as mesmerizing as its urban faery subjects." ( Booklist)
"Readers will be drawn in by Marr's darkly poetic imagery and language, her vivid portrayal of the art of tattooing, and her shadowy love triangle. This is indeed a delicious, smoky delight." ( Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

well its about time

I am hard to please! I loved this book, and went on to read the series. Well worth the money, even the narrator was awesome! If you dont like this one something might be wrong with you, see a doctor.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Found myself zoning out

The narrator has a nice voice but also struggled to make different voices for each character, i had trouble realizing who was who.
Also the story dragged in some places and for so long that I zoned out pretty often and would miss a lot of background info or beginning dialogue but the plot also didnt hold my interest as much as it could have.
it has potential, this story is nice for background noise while cleaning or driving.
