free copy through Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review.3,5 stars for a story about religion, magical inked tattoos, and immersive theatre shows.CHARACTERS The book focuses on the story of Celia and her friend Anya, their journey escaping the oppressive religious sect and joining the traveling performing company called Rabble Mob.The two have an amazing and strong bond of friendship and it was one of the strongest part of the book how they found solace in each other when they were young, how they kept each other sane during all those years in the sect, how they looked out for one another sWe also get to see a romance bond develop between Celia and Griffin who plays a Plague Doctor in the show but it felt very secondary in the grand scheme of things.Through the book we meet a plethora of secondary characters which were well developed and provided a lot of variety and flavor to the cast.The character development was particularly nice watching both Celia and Anya come out of their shells and adapting to their new environment was very interesting and entertaining.WORLD BUILDING AND PLOT The world building was simple yet fascinating we have a religion built on magical prophetic tattoos, multiple traveling performing companies whose shows are so realistic it makes you feel like you ate hallucinating mushrooms , and people surrounded by tenors auras that give out which pronouns they preferwhich, side note, to this day this is the best way I ever seen the inclusion of LGTBQ representation in a fantasy world it s done in a way that doesn t scream hey, notice me and applaud because I m AWESOME which is how it typically goesbut nope, in this book it s presented as such an ingrained part of the world building that, it just is accepted and nobody bats and eye I really enjoyed that The plot is about the questioning of religious beliefs, found family, letting go of the past.and the battle against theological blindness it s well thought out and paced, with lots of powerful moments WRITING The writing felt polished and smooth in construction, the alternation between dialogue and exposure well balanced.Don t be scared if the beginning seems too confusing, it s done on purpose to facilitate the empathizing process with the characters FINAL NOTE I absolutely enjoyed this book and I m super curious about where the story might go in the next book A Lush, Dark

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

being in sore need for another similar setting and the ink magic, but I was missing that Wow factor But then somewhere around the last thirty or twenty five percent, it become a book I couldn t put down All the themes, little bread crumbs of story, and characters that were dancing around each other, started to come together Ink in the Blood is about the magic of tattoos and ink coursing through your veins Butthan that, it s a story about freedom About religion that stifles our sense of choice The resistance and rebellion in theater And bonds stronger than words and chains Ceila and Anya s relationship was, by far, my favorite part of Ink in the Blood I wantof these fierce, stand by you, female friendships They re a team and they don t let anything stand in their way.full review
