The second of two prequel stories to Jocelynn Drake’s Angel’s Ink.
Gage’s ex-girlfriend is back in town and needs help escaping a master vampire.  While not the easiest of tasks, he certainly didn’t count of getting help from a mysterious woman with a few secrets of her own.


After reading THE ASYLUM INTERVIEWS: TRIXIE, I am eagerly anticipating ANGEL’S INK so I can have a full length book with Gage and his magical tattoo shop. This prequel introduces us to more of Gage’s friends who range from trolls to vampires to elves.

Considering we learned more about Bronx in his prequel story, I would have liked this story to revolve around Trixie more than it did. She pretty much comes in to help introduce the main conflict and then gets hired by Gage to work in his shop by the end of the story. This was both interesting and frustrating since I wanted to get to know her more. Trixie, an elf, seems like a very tough character with has a mysterious history could turn out to be really cool.  I felt like Drake was holding back on Trixie’s story purposefully since I never really learned anything signification about her the way I learned about Bronx in his novella.

Aside from my frustration with wanting to learn more about Trixie, I enjoyed getting to know more about Gage’s world, how it works, and meet some more of his friends. I am eager to see what this new, gritty urban fantasy series can bring in full length novel form when ANGEL’S INK comes out October 16, 2012.
