    Interesting read

    The book was really good, initially I only decided to read it because the author was from the same place. However the idea of using Japanese mythology was something I've never tried before and it was a unique and fun book. It wasn't quite as serious as other books based on mythology I've read but it did have it's darker moments. All in all I found the book to be a some what griping and entertaining read.

    What would it be like....

    To be a young person experiencing Japanese culture? Interesting, and exciting. Japanese folklore is magical.

    Ink

    Exciting and mysterious teen supernatural book. Light and easy to read. I found myself very interested in the Japanese culture and enjoyed learning the language throughout the book. What attracted me to read the book is the painting on the cover, simply beautiful. Looking forward to volume two.

    Great premise, lackluster execution.

    I have never been more disappointed in a book than ever before. Great looking cover. Definitely caught my eye. Then the promise of Japanese mythology and a story set in Japan drew me further in. That's all it was, tho. A promise that went unfulfilled. In a nutshell, Ink is a bad mash up of 2F2F:Tokyo Drift and Twilight. Except with kami (Japanese gods) instead of vampires, without the fast cars, and it's the ink that sparkles, not the tortured bad boy hero. Aside from the formulaic storyline, Ink is plagued with clichés and just about the worst stereotypes from both the paranormal YA and those found in Japanese animé/manga. The almost random sprinkling of Japanese phrases and words only make for a distracted narrative. Even the main characters are painfully annoying and lack any sort of depth. The fantasy element, unfortunately, takes a backseat to insta-love. More about the ink and kami world might've made this a more palatable read, but as it were, stay away and save your money (and time).
