It was her gift, sometimes her curse. To feel what others felt.

Eamon, a powerful Elven Lord, is determined to make her his consort-wife. Her gift once made permanence impossible when it came to a lover. Now, as Etain approaches the transition strog fully Elven, her survival depends on keeping two.
One of the men is willing to share her. I included the blurb above because it lays out the main characters well enough and the basics of this story. There is a lot going on in this book.
There is a Harlequin Rapist who remains at large. This man kidnaps his victims, tortures and rapes them and then leaves them for dead. These young girls get mixed up with some boys they are crushing on, who then drug them and take turns raping them.
When Caitlyn starts to convulse the boys panic, put them back in their car and leave them for dead.
Review: Inked Magic by Jory Strong
Caitlyn dies but Brianna survives and her father and uncle demand revenge. He wants to help Brianna but he knows exactly what his uncle will do if Etain is able to name the boys responsible. Lastly, we have Eamon, an Elven Lord. How is it that Etain has been in his territory for as long as she jpry been jnked him knowing? When he approaches her and introduces himself he realizes that she is a soul seer ; rare in the elven world.
If their queen should hear of it, she could be in danger. Eamon decides on the spot that he will make her his. Etain quickly gets busy with both men. They are aware of each other and that Etain is seeing both of them. Etain sees them separately for most of the story. Etain struggles to find a balance. Though she is drawn to both men, she leans more toward Eamon as he slowly brings her into his world by introducing her to magic and helping her to understand her true nature.
Etain is helping her brother by attempting to find the artist who may have done a ihked which they believe the Harlequin Rapist wears. As she delves into this she unknowingly puts herself at additional joey when she is taken, all hell breaks loose.
It is inekd that Eamon realizes that Cathal holds the key for them to be able to locate Etain and hopefully rescue her inkde time. There were parts of this story that I really liked. I loved the character of Etain with her gift of second sight via touch. I also loved that she was able to use the art of tattooing to provide a sense of healing and positive energy to her clients. I also very much liked the two male protagonists, Cathal and Eamon. I liked how Cathal was able to joey away from his family and lead a legitimate life without losing his connection to his family.
When he agrees to help bring Etain to assist in healing Brianna, he wants to make sure that Etain is not hurt in the fall out. Eamon was intriguing with his magic and ties to jorry elven world. I liked his dry humor and the way his cohorts teased him throughout the book as he attempted to make Etain his.
I thought the love triangle worked fine in the interest of this story and I think the author did a really good job when she finally brought all three together the first time. Unfortunately, I thought the plot with the Harlequin rapist had a lot of holes in it.
The author notes on several occasions that this man is attracted to Etain because he can see her aura in a bright golden light that surrounds her; he can also see it change when he sees her near Cathal or Eamon. The other point that left me dissatisfied was with Etain being part elf. Again, it is inferred that Etain needs to go through some sort of change and Eamon will guide her through it. Eamon worries that she may not survive it, but at no point during the story do we witness any kind of transformation.
Eamon presses Etain to let iinked help her that he can guide her to understand her power and control it. But other than infusing her mayic his magic to help her get through the periods of illness that she suffers after using her gift, I saw no guidance, no teachings, and in the end we are left hanging.
I would almost be okay with how this story ended if it was the first in a series and we could look forward to an additional story.
This ending was way to open ended for me and totally changed my view of the unked which I enjoyed, in spite of the points I mentioned, until the ending.
Hi Blodeuedd-yes, there is bad stuff. I have to say, though, that I did like this story over all. Too bad about the ending! I usually check out the reviews that you reference at the end of ours once they post. I think knowing that this was the first in a series would have altered my perception of the ending.
