This would have made a nifty short story if it didn't stretch its already paper thin concept over hundreds of pages and if I hadn't already read that same story half a dozen times From Bradbury's The Illustrated Man to movies like Ninja Scroll Elektra The Rage Carrie 2 The Tatooist Comforting Skin episodes of The X files to a dozen other borderline plagiarism riffs especially William Friedkin's Tales From The Crypt episode On A Deadman's Chest which INK blatantly steals from chapter to chapter even down to gooey seuences in which the tattoo in that case a snake bursts free from the lead character's flesh and tries to attack him in the finale Only this version was better because it was shorter and at least had some gritty sexuality to itIt's well written no denying it but it's all so tired None of the characters are particularly interesting either especially the lead female who seems to serve little purpose other than emotional page filler because the male lead is so paper thin And I don't know if I'm the only one but if I read yet another Devil's Bargain you should have read the fine print story I'll pull my hair out Plot move for plot move I picked everything coming and each time this happened it looked better in my head than what was revealed on the page The moment I met the devil I knew the book would end with some kind of epilogue in which it forebodes his evil continuing this is but one of many many by the number mechanisms wrought through this messSadly this is the first miss that I've read on the Samhain Horror line It angered and frustrated me and even with the boredom I only finished it because I wanted to know if every plot move I'd predicted eventuated And they did INK is a waste of its namesake Come on Samhain you can do better

It's a little tricky to review this book without giving too much away I liked the characters and appreciated the time that was spent building them into people I could really care about The setting was also well drawn and reminded me of some of my favorite early urban horror by Clive Barker Grintalis has a sharp eye for description a finely tuned ear for language and a bloody finger on the pulse of horror Ink takes a fresh premise grounded in realistic character drama and then slowly and relentlessly pushes it to some surprising limits My only criticism was that the end felt a little rushed and some things that could have been maximized for horrific effect were sort of glossed over in a way that made them a little awkward to visualize I'm thinking mainly of the removal of the suit here But the things poor Jason endured throughout Look out for DWG; she's a merciless author and I can't wait to see what she does next
