Inigo is a vampire who specializes in tattooing other world creatures and Michah is a faerie who is trying to right his family name. A variety of circumstances find them both in Faerieland against their will and held captive by the fae kind Oberon.
The two men are thrown together and due to their desperate situation they decided to work together. They quickly realize they are attracted to each other and a romance begins in the middle of their adventure.
There was a lot going on in this book. A lot. There were a lot of characters and our two main guys jump from one crisis to the next in quick succession. There was something about the writing that made it seem to be moving too quickly. I think it was the fact that each situation happened quickly and was not really looked at in detail. The whole book was a whirlwind and I found myself struggling to catch up.
Our heroes were likeable and interesting but it was an insta-love situation and it was hard to believe. I realize it's a book about vampires and fairies so I'm suspending belief going in, but I just don't think two people would want to have sex immediately after being tortured and sexually assaulted by the king and then locked in a dungeon. I don't know. Maybe that's just me.
I did not connect with the story or either of the characters really. Towards the end I was just tired of the constant moving, and fighting, and running and etc. I just wanted them to get through their next drama and get to the end.

No one can tattoo better than Inigo, a two-hundred-year-old vampire, who works on human and supernatural skins. But he’s never tattooed a faerie, and when a bunch of them insist he comes with them to tattoo one of their kind, saying no proves not to be an option. His skin is Oberon, the faerie king, and Inigo fears this will be the last tattoo he’ll ever do.
The moment the faerie Micah lands in the faerie king’s bed chamber, he knows the guy is trouble. But if he’s to save his sister and his family, let alone the job he’s paid to do, he has to stay in Faerieland and endure Oberon’s sadism. When he’s thrown into a starving vampire’s cell, covered in blood, he fears this day will be his last. But Inigo finds Micah's blood too delicious to give it up by killing him.
Pretty soon, he's feeling that way about Micah himself.
