“Full of unique elements, some humor and gave me one hell of a hot ride.” ~ Under the Covers
There are very few things that draw me in on a cover…one of those is tats. And that was mainly the reason I wanted to pick this up. Well, that and the fact that I recently read a short story by Ms. DeWylde in the HOT AND HAUNTED anthology and thought it was the best story in that book.
So back to FURYOUS INK. I can be a little thickheaded sometimes and the title didn’t clue me in. This book has a Fury in it! I don’t get to read about them enough. Megaera Eumenides aka Meg, is a fury and a tattoo artist. She is also the only clue that Detective Marcus Kage, a Lycanos working his last case before moving on to another town where they don’t realize he’s aging. The case? There’s a serial killer of sorts, targeting Amazons, and all the victims have in common is a tattoo.
This story is sexy right off the bat (well, not right at the beginning when there’s a body to be found). Kage and Meg are pretty hot together, even when they think they won’t end up together because the happiness of a mate is not for them.
The mystery of the story was interesting, with a lot of different supernatural elements that I’m not used to reading about (furies, amazons and killer spiders) along with elements that I I’m more familiar with (lycans and witches). Looking for the killer threw me for a loop because I wasn’t expecting who the killer ended up being.
I find that Ms. DeWylde can write a very enthralling story (and I’ve only read her shorts) and FURYOUS INK was full of unique elements, some humor and gave me one hell of a hot ride.
“So how does one book a Fury ride?”
