I picked up Inked for a book challege that I often participate in. I had heard wonderful things about the book and thought to give it a try. I loved this book. I had only heard of Karen Chance before reading this and had already decided to read the series she has published. Now I am in love iwth Marjorie Liu and the world she has created. I have picked up the first two book in the series and cant wait to dive into them. If you are curious about other authors and want a good sampling of work, I would suggest reading this book!

this was a interesting and well crafted compilation of several of the genre's leading authors. It was enjoyable escapist fantasy at it's best and introduced me to a writer with a unique and engaging style in Liu.

This is a collection of four novellas by some very popular urban fantasy authors loosely connected around the theme of the tattoo. Skin Deep by Karen Chance is a fast paced action-adventure tale set in a world of wizards and werewolves where a magical war is being waged. The backdrop has enough depth to keep things interesting and offers plenty of opportunities for other adventure. The tone is rather fun-loving, which blended well with the fast-paced action. I might have really liked this story if the dialogue had not been such a distraction. Etched in Silver by Yasmine Galenorn suffers from a similar mixture of good and bad elements. The setting of this urban fantasy—a complex mixture of fae societies and other supernatural creatures—captured my interest, but unfortunately, my ability to suspend disbelieve to truly get into the plot was shot in the brain—continually—by abysmal dialogue. It was even more artificial than Chance’s and it made it very difficult to complete the story. I did finish it, because I thought the plot elements were interesting enough that I wished to know how Galenorn would resolve her little mystery, but I can’t say that I enjoyed the story. Human Nature by Eileen Wilks is a superb addition to her Lupi series. The tattoo is critically important to the story, the characters are utterly believable, there is a well-drawn mystery with excellent conflicts abounding through the text. It’s an all around great story and well worth the time of anyone who enjoys a good urban fantasy. However, the jewel of this collection is Marjorie M. Liu’s Armor of Roses. I can think of nothing even slightly negative to complain about in this novella. The mystery is subtle and expertly developed. The heroine and the cast around her are sharply drawn and utterly fascinating. The dialogue is letter perfect—flowing naturally and truly developing the cast. And the twists and turns and dilemma’s that face Maxine make for a very exciting read. I had never read anything by Liu before this novella but I certainly will seek her out now. I’d appreciate any suggestions regarding her best books. This collection is definitely worth reading. I wanted to give it five stars on the strength of Armor of Roses and Human Nature but decided it would be more honest to rate it only four.
