Book Review: Ink In The Blood

It's considered a noble calling, but ten years into their servitude Celia and Anya know the truth: Profeta is built on lies, the tattooed orders strip away freedom, and the revered temple is actually a brutal, torturous prison.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher, HMH Books for Young Readers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! In no way does this affect my rating or review.

When I first came across Ink in the Blood, I thought the synopsis sounded really interesting. Tattoo magic wound together with faith for fans of Kendare Blake? I’m here. I love Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns series, so I was hoping for something comparable. But what I came here for, was totally different than I expected. The “faith” portion was centered around a religious figure that was the focus of a very warped religion in this story, and I simply don’t want to read further.
