The Dark Ink Chronicles, #1

Afterlight is a book every paranormal lover is going to fall in love with!

Come take a wild ride with me. My name is Riley Poe. And, when I say wild, I mean one heck of a get down and dirty with things that go bump in the night. Things I never truly believed in, but now I do. I have too. They (evil ones) have taken control of my little brother and now I am ready to kick some malevolent butt.

I am not alone though. I have a hunk of a guy, well…more like a hot vampire guy, stuck on me like glue to help me fight the evil and get my little bro back.

Did I mention I am also a slamming tattoo artist with tats all over me? Crazy much? You bet I am, well, I used to be out-of-control crazy. Now, I am crazier in good ways.

This could get nasty, so watch your step and get ready for anything!

Afterlight, the first book in The Dark Ink Chronicles, is by author Elle Jasper. Ms. Jasper penned a winner. Using an edgy first person narrative, Ms. Jasper gave Riley Poe free rein to take me into a paranormal tale that consumed me from page one.

Riley’s character is snappy and true to herself. You cannot help but love her quirky personality and tattoos. She has had it rough as a youth and has pulled herself up by the bootstraps to become the woman she is today. The secondary characters give Riley a perfect backdrop to display her talents as she fights the darkness invading her world.

After reading Afterlight, I just could not help imagining this book up on the silver screen. It would make one heck of a movie series.

This is the first five star review I have given because not only is this book a keeper, I have also found a new favorite author I cannot wait to read more of in the future.

I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next book in the series, Everdark. This is a must read paranormal book and it comes highly recommended. Get your copy today of Afterlight by Elle Jasper.

Book Blurb for Afterlight

There is a reason we fear the night…

As Savannah's most unconventional tattoo artist, Riley Poe is quite familiar with the local underground scene. She lives and works on the edge of it every day.

Now, she's about to step over the edge.

When her younger brother is taken by a sinister cult led by centuries-old vampires, Riley discovers a world of shadows and blood--and those who exist there.

Her ally is the hot-tempered vampire Eli Dupre, who is attracted both to Riley's beauty as well as her one-of-a-kind blood type. A blood type he is not alone in craving.

To save her brother from certain un-death, Riley will face dangers she's never dreamed of, ruthless bloodthirsty enemies, and an evil of endless hunger that wants to devour all in its vile grasp.
