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. . . .
Ink Exchange is another wonderful story in the Wicked Lovely series. I loved the story. Leslie, Irial and Niall take the stage in Ink Exchange, while still hearing from the main characters of Wicked Lovely. I loved getting to know the characters who didn’t have as big of a role in book one. The plot is one to keep you constantly occupied. Ink Exchange’s conclusion had me insanely excited for book 3, Fragile Eternity. This is definately a book you will not want to miss.
