I knew I was going to love this book even before I was done reading the sample. And I was correct. This series is definitely in my top three favorites this year. I cannot wait to begin the next one. I would suggest not reading every review that reveals too much before you read it. I think it is better to just dive right in and discover the world of the Twixt for yourself!

Joy gets thrown on to a new world when she sees a stranger with black eyes. He cuts her and she begins to see and hear strange things. She finds out she has to help Indelible Ink a stranger or she will be hurt. She has to deliver messages to Ink. Ink never wanted to drag her into his world as he really doesn't know much about humans. Now that Joy has been marked as the property of ink they have to learn about each other and try to break the bond. Joy pretends to be Ink's to stay safe but soon she begins to care for him for real. This book was a little different from what I was expecting. It was really good and kept me entertained. I like the idea of the Trixt. Joy has some family issues going on and she would rather ignore them than to face up to them. She is a great character as she learns and grows as you read about her. Ink is such a sweetheart actually. He doesn't like to do harm and only wants Joy to be safe. I also really enjoyed Inq his sister. She knows more about humans than Ink and tries to help him understand what it means to have a human as his property. She also helps Joy at different time. Twixt is a amazing world to get to know. There is tons of danger and different elements to get to know. There are different kind of paranormal creatures to meet and as always there is some evil in with the good. I did like how Joy learned more about her self in this book and getting to know this world. I do look forward to reading more about this fascinating world and characters.

Indelible was an interesting story. I'm still trying to figure out what I think of this book as I'm writing this review... I appreciated the character of Joy Malone for being a strong female lead that dealt with insane circumstances and still held on to some of her sanity. Finding out you have the gift of the Sight by getting your eye sliced open by a complete stranger would be more than enough to freak me out! Indelible Ink is the male half of the Scribes. Miss Invisible Inq is the other half. They could not be more opposite. While Inq seems to relish in learning about humanity, Ink has never thought much of it...until he sees Joy. When Ink realizes she can see him back, he tries to remove her Sight by blinding her. Instead, he gives her his mark and she becomes his lehman or "lover."  The innocence of Ink reminded almost of an Edward Scissorhands like character that is full of childlike wonder and that also has very adult feelings as well. Ink and Joy are in awe of each other. It is a wonderful relationship to watch grow! Overall, this book was very well written and the characters did draw me in.  5 stars to Indelible.

I have trouble expressing my thoughts about Indelible. On the one hand, it’s totally “meh”, but on the other hand, it has this amazing concept…It just failed to execute. Joy Malone sees a stranger with all-black eyes in a crowded room while going out with her best friend. But what she reads in the boys’ black eyes, is only malice. Seconds later, he approaches her and tries to cut out her eyes, but fails. The wound accidentally marks her as his property. And he is Indelible Ink, some kind of fae, a scribe in his world, and his marks are premanent. By marking her, he involuntarily thrusts Joy into a strange, wonderous world. All kinds of monsters try to contact her in an attempt to get through to Ink. For Joy, it’s unclear what’s going on, until Ink and his sister show up and try to explain. Her old life is forever shattered, but if she values her life, then she’ll make sure nobody ever finds out about Ink’s mistake – marking her as opposed to taking her eyes. That means they have to act like they’re together, even though Joy hates him for ruining her life… Unfortunately, that very hate doesn’t last long, and before you very well notice it, you’re in the middle of cheesy paranormal romance story the likes of Twilight. Joy hates Ink at first, and God, she has every right to. He tried to cut her eyes out! And like that’s not bad enough, now she’s stuck as a numero uno target for paranormal creatures thanks to his failure. But she quickly forgives him in order to work together, and then, naturally, falls head over heels for him. Like it’s that easy to fall in love with the guy who had tried to cut your eyes out. Or are we supposed to forgive everything because he’s hot and has paranormal powers? Don’t think so! The sad part is – the promise in this book was overwhelming. The writing style is very good, down-to-earth, and the pacing is spot on. The background story about scribes and marks and all that is awesome as well. But all that is overshadowed by the ever-present, making little to no sense, love affair between Ink and Joy. They literally go from not knowing each other and barely standing each other to falling head over heels within about fifty pages. Right. Color me unconvinced. The story is also very confusing. It’s never really clear (until the end) what exactly Ink does, why his job is so important in this strange, new world Joy is part of, and what his actions in regards to Joy mean, not just for her, but for everyone. Sometimes the writing was so cryptic, or so uninteresting (make of that what you wish) that I had to reread entire paragraphs to figure out what was going on. The entire book long I felt like an outsider, watching from outside the window and peeking into Joy and Ink’s world. Never once did I actually feel like I was inside that world. All in all, great potential, decent story, but the relationship between the characters was unbelievable and rushed, and the story was, at times, confusing.

There is something about the cover on this book that makes you want to pick it up. The rough lines, the colors, they make a statement and leave you wondering what the book is about and you won’t be able to put it down. “There’s a guy and you like guys and you met a guy, this Someone-A-Guy?” Joy gets in an altercation with a mysterious man with solid black eyes at a night club and injures her eye after he attacks her for some unknown reason. Strange things keep happening to Joy. People showing up out of nowhere and giving her weird messages for some guy named Ink. When one of her messages goes wrong she finally comes face to face with this Ink character and nobody can see him but her. As her days just get stranger and more dangerous, Joy must decide if this new life is worth living and can she live long enough to decide. This book is one of the best books I have read in a very long time and deserves a 6 star rating. I truly hope that author Dawn Metcalf has a lot more writing in store for readers and I hope to one day see this on the big screen.*This book was provided in exchange for an honest review*  *You can view the original review at Musing with Crayolakym and San Francisco & Sacramento City Book Review

Since first looking at the cover of author Dawn Metcalf’s Indelible, the first novel in the Twixt series, I knew that it was going to be something interesting to read. That cover looked mysterious and beautiful which are two of the words I would use to describe Indelible. It’s one of those reads that you just get lost in and I personally fell in love with every minute I spent with Joy and Ink. Indelible tells the story of main character Joy Malone who, after accidentally seeing a boy that she shouldn’t be able to see, finds herself being pulled into a dark world within our own. When the boy with black eyes notices that Joy can see him he cuts her eye and accidentally marks Joy to be his Lehman; a person who will have to act as his lover unless they both want to suffer the consequences of him marking her by accident. Joy accepts that she is the boy’s Lehman as it’s her best option and learns that the boy is Indelible Ink and his sister is Invisible Inq. Both of them work for the Twixt and mark people with a specific signiturae. As Joy is brought into a world darker than our own she finds herself seeing the creatures her sight brings and slowly begins to fall for Ink. However not all is what it seems among the Twixt and one of their own is plotting something that Joy, Inq and Ink may not be able to stop. What I really enjoyed about Indelible was that I was hooked from the very first page to the very last. I couldn’t stop reading. The way Metcalf’s writing style flow and the way the plot is perfectly paced just left me completely obsessed. I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what would happen next to Joy and Ink and I had to know if their relationship would move a bit further or if, with Joy, Ink would grow to become more human. This is one of those reads that becomes completely, take over your brain addictive and I loved every second of it. The characters in Indelible are ones that you really grow to love while you’re reading. The characters are realistic (despite this being a novel with fantasy creatures) and also grow as you read the novel. I really enjoyed this character growth because throughout the novel the characters are supposed to change with Joy as she comes to accept her role as Ink’s Lehman. There are also a lot of relationships established in Indelible that grow in either a good way or a bad way which means: friends and enemies are formed. It’s very exciting to watch these relationships get made and broken as the plot unfolds. In Indelible you also get to watch Joy and Ink fall in love. Oh my feels, these two characters completely owned my emotions while reading. Right from the start when Ink oh so romantically cuts Joy’s eye to the end when he and her have already established that they are more than just friends, I loved these two being together. Every single time they got cute or romantic around each other my heart would just melt and the descriptions were just perfect for each moment. Joy teaches Ink how to become more human and Ink teaches Joy things she didn’t know about herself. I loved the romance in this book and I ship Ink and Joy. If they ever get split up in future stories I’ll go insane I’ll be sad. I would recommend Indelible to readers who are looking for a novel that will keep your attention throughout the story. Readers who want a story that had the perfect amount of romance and fantasy and action will definitely enjoy reading Indelible. Fans of male characters like Jace Wayland (from Cassandra Claire’s The Mortal Instruments) will love Ink and will love him and Joy and will love their love. All around, I would highly recommend this novel to YA readers.

Looking for something a little different from the usual fare of YA Paranormal Romance books? Mark my words, Indelible by Dawn Metcalf IS different! Joy is human, very human, under the usual pressures of being a teen, as well as dealing with 'family' issues, but she is likeable and strong. Ink is, well, a being from the realm of Twixt. He seems almost half-formed as a character at first, because, well, he is only half-formed, he only has glimpses of humans and their behavior to mold himself after. His sister, Inq,is a little more colorful, a little more personable and a little more quirky! Through a huge error on Ink's part, Joy is bound to him and together they must act the part. Romance slowly blooms and it really is a gentle thing, as Ink learns from Joy just what its like to be human. I did enjoy the story, loved the idea of the plot, but needed more information and world-building to better understand this other realm and its inhabitants. That said, Indelible has one of the most eye-catching covers I have ever seen! A review copy was provided by NetGalley and Harlequin Teen in exchange for my honest review.
