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.

    "Fantastic Story"

    We were so wrapped up in this trilogy. Even a three minute drive to the grocery store warranted putting it on in the car. I loved all of the personality written into each character. We mentioned to each other several times what an amazing job the narrator did with all of the voices and accents. I was bummed when it was over!

    "Great book in a series of excellent books."

    This collection of books is outstanding. The base story and development of characters is so on point. I can wait till the next book. The narrator is top notch.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.
