Buyer beware . . .
Looking for a tattoo'and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop of true love, or even a hex on an ex? Head to the quiet and mysterious Gage, the best skin artist in town. Using unique potions'a blend of extraordinary ingredients and special inks'to etch the right symbol, he can fulfill any heart's desire. But in a place like Low Town, where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires happily walk among humanity, everything has its price.No one knows that better than Gage. Turning his back on his own kind, he left the magical Ivory Tower where cruel witches and warlocks rule, a decision that cost him the right to practice magic. And if he disobeys, his punishment'execution'will be swift.Though he's tried to fly under the radar, Gage can't hide from powerful warlocks who want him dead'or the secrets of his own past. But with the help of his friends, Trixie, a gorgeous elf who hides her true identity, and a hulking troll named Bronx, Gage might just make it through this enchanted world alive.
Drake (the Dark Days vampire series) very ably spins a series launch about a tattoo artist with big secrets. This alternate universe contains evil warlocks and witches, tradition-bound elves, an ancient purveyor of equally ancient treasures both real and mystical, and plot twists designed to enchant. Gage fled the cruel Ivory Towers and life as a warlock to run his Asylum Tattoo Parlor, assisted by troll Bronx and elf Trixie. Those wanting some ink with a little magic sprinkled in come to Gage. The sadistic warlocks have forbidden Gage to use his magic on pain of death, so he keeps a low profile, but when he mixes a breathtakingly rare ingredient into a tattoo for a dying woman, he stirs up trouble that sends the plot caroming with ferocious intensity to a satisfying but open-ended conclusion.
