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.

No surviving Heroes ?

The first book of this series really drew me in. I couldn't wait to read the next one and when I finally got to the last one, I couldn't put it down. Yeah, I noticed that a lot of the good guys were being killed off and the love affair was hopeless but surely there would be a couple of twists to bring it all back in for the heroes. Sadly, I was proved wrong. Why build up Rina Veraiin's character so much and still doom her ? She had no justice for her parents death, her love interest bailed in her without explanation, and she was only able to rule her own duchy for a few months. What was the point?

Review

I enjoyed this series for it's creative and unique storyline. I was a bit disappointed with the ending because it left me with a lot of unanswered questions. However, the overall storyline was very good and I enjoyed reading it. One good thing is that it left me wanting more!

Fantastic

What and epic story. Dark, but deep and entertaining ball the way through. I connected with each character in this entire series and actually cared for what happened to them. I laughed and I cried. What a beautiful and tragic tale full of strong women and brave men. A perfect adult fantasy.

Just okay

It got a little boring for awhile but end picked up toward the end and wasn't bad. If you already read the other 2, you may as will get this one. It is cheap enough to make it okay.

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.

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.

Felt compressed, but remained enjoyable.

book 1 was really good, while book two felt too short which leads to book three. I want to say it was a good book and it was, but at the same time it felt rushed. like the author had been forced to compress the story into this final book instead of creating a forth book. The trilogy is well worth reading all the same.

Epic story

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.
