Publisher's Summary

A whole new series from the world of the Echo Trilogy.

Three years ago, the gods abandoned us. We've been alone ever since.

Kat Dubois is immortal, and she's retired. She's long since hung up her sword and left assassinating immortals to someone else...anyone else. She's now a hard drinking, sass-flinging Seattle tattoo artist with the innate ability to read people's fortunes using her charmed deck of tarot cards. Her days of bloodshed are over, and she has nothing but time - an eternity, in fact - to hide from her past.

Until someone from her past shows up on her doorstep with news that her beloved older brother and mentor, Dominic, has gone missing. Kat may be the only person with the right skills - and access to the right magic - to track him down. She must confront her past if she's to have any chance of finding and saving her brother. She must fight her demons. She must embrace the power within her.

She must become the Ink Witch.

"Twilight" with more backbone

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It heavily depends on personal preferences. Lore does resemble some parts of Neil Gaiman's "American gods" although perspective is vastly different.It should appeal to the fans of genre - female POV, strong character and lore references. Depicted culture and characters do not lack details by any chance.Since I'm not quite a fan of genre - time spent listening was good enough to pass time, but not quite there to detach me from life and focus on listening.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A little bit more emotion/mindset into what it would "feel" like to be part of culture, that interacts with society and hidden right next to it.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

On one hand - voice casting an immortal must have been somewhat tricky - a level of apathy is expected, though throughout the book overall lack of emotion did cause attention to blur.

Was Ink Witch worth the listening time?

If you are a fan of the genre - it's a decent book to grab. Otherwise - it's good enough to pass a few hours, but will not end up as a memorable book in library.

Any additional comments?

Excellent narrator for a great story!

If you could sum up Ink Witch in three words, what would they be?

If you haven't read/listened to the Echo in Time trilogy (plus 2 novellas), I think you'll enjoy this but will be missing a lot of the backstory. This is a fantastic continuation of the Echo in Time series, where Kat was introduced. Very excited for the next installment (already started it!)

What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

The narrator is fantastic!! She does a great job with the different characters and gives life to Kat's insouciance from the novel; not an easy feat to combine the angst of teenager with an immortal 18-year-old. I hope that she continues to narrate the other 2 novels in this series (I think a 4th is due this summer, hope she does that one too!)

good book

Would you listen to Ink Witch again? Why?

I really like this book, the only negative is that there is so long pauses betwen chapters. A few times I almost got my phone out of my pocket to see if the app crashed, it was really annoying.

Good story line

Main character has a lot of growing to do, but author has given her plenty of room. Can’t wait until she is a more sure of herself and her intentions.

Great Story!

Well-developed characters drive the plot of this book. The story grabs you and draws you in. The only caveat would be that it holds the mother of all cliffhangers!

pretty good

Not five stars because while the story was wildly original, it kind of jumped into it and failed to provide some background. With stories that reference back to a history so often, I felt like more explanation on that and on the powers was necessary.

Just enough to get you to buy the next book

The book was good actually but the ending just dropped off.

I feel the author is more interested in getting me to buy the next book then having a full and complete plot.
