The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . BETWEEN INK AND SHADOW (Between Ink and Shadows, #1) . . . For me a great combination of fantasy and historical romance. Nimona and Warrick was pleasant to meet. Inara was a wonderful world to explore and get lost in for few hours. Melissa Wringt I look forward to your next audio release from this series. Mary Jane Wells gave feeling to the characters. It was not just someone reading a story.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Melissa Wright. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
She’ll win back her freedom, even if she has to steal it.
Nimona Weston has a debt to pay. Her father’s dealings with the dark society known as the Trust cost Nim her freedom. There’s one way out of the contract on her life and that’s to bide her time and pay the tithes. But when the Trust assigns Nim to a task in the king’s own castle, her freedom is not the only thing she’ll risk.
Warrick Spenser has a secret. As king’s seneschal, he should be the last soul in Inara to risk association with dark magic, but long-hidden ties to the Trust are harder to shed than simply cutting the threads. When the Trust sends a thief to his rooms, Warrick thinks he’s finally found a way to be rid of them for good. But Nimona Weston is hiding secrets of her own.
Magical contracts, blood-debt accountants, and a deadly game. An epic fantasy with Regency flair, an improper and slightly stabby heroine with a penchant for trouble, clean slow-burn romance, and a dark and twisty plot that pits magic against kings, love against power, and a gothic underworld against a kingdom desperate to survive. Perfect for fans of Sorcery of Thorns and The Shadows Between Us.
Melissa is the author of more than a dozen YA and fantasy novels including The Frey Saga and BETWEEN INK AND SHADOWS. When not writing she can generally be found talking about a book, painting something from a book, or tucked between headphones listening to a book. It’s kind of a theme. She loves reasonable heroines in unreasonable situations, noble--if brooding--heroes, slow burn and sweet kisses, a lot of havoc, and a little magic.
