Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity - Review

Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity - just finished them... omgosh, long books - roughly 400 pages each lol GREAT reads though!

Ink Exchange, - WOW I have really been into tattoos (don't have any) but I'm fascinated with them, this scared the dickens out of me with them though... Leslie, gets one and it turns out to be nothing of what she expected, she slashed into Aislinns world and her fate is twist and turns, you learn more of the fairie world and how things really work, how involved humans are... how they are used.

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Court 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. . . .

Fragile Eternity, - I could get through this book fast enough lol - I kinda knew where it was going but it was definitely deceiving in parts - I really thought Sorcha was going to be a 'love' interest, not what she ended up being - Can't say much without giving it away. Fantastic book!

Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone—but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.

Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her—but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.

In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.

~~The next book is Radiant Shadows and I have to pull it out of the closet tonight :) Hoping to get it read this weekend while doing some computer work :)
