Title: Ink Mage - A Fire Beneath The Skin Book 1 Author: Victor Gischler Published: 4-29-14 Publisher: Amazon Publishing/47 North Pages: 402 Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy Sub Genre: Action & Adventure; ISBN: 97814778499309 ASIN: B00EOSI8JE Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . When the city of Klaar falls to an invading force Rina Veraiin, the Duke's daughter barely makes escapes with her life and make it to the Ink Mage with the help of her bodyguard Kork. The Ink Mage empowers her with magical gifts which she must quickly master if she is to help her people and eject the invaders from her lands before she can return to her rightful place on the throne. Each tattoo increases her abilities as she continues to grow becoming something different, something as yet unknown. Something more than anyone can imagine. Fast moving while keeping the storyline smooth and flowing. For a fantasy fiction it keeps you involved in the story without leaving you feeling lost. You will love the variety of the well developed characters, both good and bad. This book ends with a lot of unanswered questions. It continues with book two The Tattooed Duchess. It is book one of three.

Ink Mage by Victor Gischler is a wonderful fantasy novel about a girl, a duchess, that sees her father and mother murdered in front of her by an invading army and traitor. She is helped out of the city by her body guard and friend to see a wizard that gives her a powerful and magical tattoo that strengthens her body and helps her fight. She later gets more tattoos and soon so is very powerful. She is also assisted by others and they have many adventures on the way. Lots of characters and stories in the book that come together near the end, great weave. I won't tell more but it is very exciting,full of action, imagination, blow by blow play that happens quickly, amazing feats, a bit of romance, a wonderful plot and complex characters. I want to see more. I was given this book for a honest review from NetGalley but will look for the next book, it was that good. Loved it! Fantasy at it's best.

The city of Klaar has never fallen. No enemy has ever made it across the Long Bridge or penetrated the city’s mighty walls. Even when a powerful invading army shows up at the gates, the duke and his daughter, Rina Veraiin, are certain that it poses little threat. But they are cruelly betrayed from within and, in a horrific spasm of violence, the city is brought to its knees. With the help of her bodyguard, Kork, the battle-trained young Rina narrowly escapes the slaughter and makes her way to the lair of an ancient sorcerer—the Ink Mage—who gifts her with a strange, beautiful set of magical tattoos. Now a duchess in exile, Rina sets out on a quest to reclaim what is rightfully hers, aided by a motley assortment of followers who will help her in her cause—some for noble reasons and others for their own dark purposes. With the enemy’s agents nipping at her heels, Rina must learn to harness her new and startling magical powers if she is to assert her rightful  place as ruler of Klaar. I can't say enough about this book! Great stary line and charaters. I started to read this and continued to the end, couldn't put it down. If you don't read this book then it is your lose. I passed it on to friends to read. I HOPE Victor Gischler KEEPS THIS CHARATER AND RIGHTS ANOTHER! GREAT BOOK, WELL WORTH THE TIME.
