Book Review: Dead Ink: A Karma World Romance by Donna Augustine

Dead Ink: A Karma World Romance
by Donna Augustine
Pages: 308
Within the walls of his tattoo shop, Dead Ink, Lars hides in plain sight from the past he walked away from. But he still battles every day with the dark urges that drove him from his position as the Grim Reaper. Then Faith Dover appears, seeking his aid, and Lars discovers that he isn’t as hardened as he thought.

On the run from her kidnapper, Faith stumbles into Dead Ink, towing in enough secrets and baggage to weigh down the dead. But Lars isn’t the savior she hopes him to be. Dark and seductive, he might be more dangerous than the people she’s running from.

When he discovers her suspicious ties to a crew of murderers, will he help her or cast her out to the craziness that has overtaken the world? Can Faith win the heart of a soul incapable of trust?

A note from the author: This is a companion romance novel that takes place in the Karma urban fantasy world. It runs parallel to Fated's timeline. It can be read alone or in addition to the series as the final book.

Faith needs help and doesn’t know where to turn. She decides the enemy of her enemy seems like a good place to start. When Faith first laid eyes on Lars she wasn’t sure if she should stay or run. He was dangerous, that much she was sure of, but she was still so drawn to him. Even though she didn’t have anywhere else to go she felt safe with the guys and would do anything for them.

Another excellent book by Donna Augustine! Love this series and was not disappointed. One of my favorite things with a series is when the author does side books and lets us see more about some of the supporting characters and Dead Ink was spot on! I’d like to see the stories that go with Cutty, Bic, and Angus as well. My heart hurt in so many places with the stupidity of two people so in love they didn’t see it. Fabulous love story without disconnecting from the rest of the books. I know that Augustine said it’s a standalone read if you want it to be, but I think that by reading the rest of the books in this series first it makes this book all the more enjoyable!
