I received this book at BEA (Book Expo America '13) from Harlequin Teen in exchange for an honest review.
Some things are permanent.
And they cannot be changed back.
Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room – right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world – a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.
Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one – his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future…and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.
Somewhere between reality and myth lies…

They make eye contact across a crowded room. Unable to look away. strangers drawn to each other. Aahhh yes, isn’t this such a sweet way to meet?! One for the best of the romantic movies. Or is it? What happens next certainly isn’t what movies are made of…well at least not a romance movie.
Indelible is about Folk from a parallel world. Joy can see this world and finds out the hard way that that’s not always a good thing. In fact it’s a very bad thing as it puts a paranormal bulls eye on her back and leads trouble right to her. It takes all she has to just survive in this new world of dangerous big bads and let me tell you some of them are pretty darn scary!
I really enjoyed all of the fantasy elements in this book, including those scary Folk! I also liked that the connection between Ink and Joy didn’t happen instantly like in a lot of books. I mean really, how can you have instalove with someone who tries to stab you in the eye!!
Overall Rating: 4.25 out of 5
