A whole new series from the world of the Echo Trilogy. Three years ago, the gods abandoned us. We've been alone ever since. Kat Dubois is immortal, and she’s retired. She’s long since hung up her sword and left assassinating immortals to someone else...anyone else. She’s now a hard drinking, sass-flinging Seattle tattoo artist with the innate ability to read people’s fortunes using her charmed deck of tarot cards. Her days of bloodshed are over, and she has nothing but time--an eternity, in fact--to hide from her past. Until someone from her past shows up on her doorstep with news that her beloved older brother and mentor, Dominic, has gone missing. Kat may be the only person with the right skills--and access to the right magic--to track him down. She must confront her past if she’s to have any chance of finding and saving her brother. She must fight her demons. She must embrace the power within her. She must become the Ink Witch.
Egyptian gods and goddesses morph into a Supergirl fantasy crossed with Jessica Jones.
This is a YA series that isn’t.
The heroine is 38 trapped in the body – and hormones – of an 18 year old. For eternity. Or until she is killed – but she is very very hard to kill.
The myths of Old Egypt meet – something new to me, although it seemed to be loosely based on these myths with lots of additions.
Did I like the books? Of course. I always like a kickass female heroine and Kat wins on all scales from her mad sword skills to her mixed martial arts AND she rides a Ducati!
I totally get why she has tattoos, even though not my scene, but they prove essential to the storyline, though not sure about the extra body piercings even though they add to the ‘bad’ character.
Can’t wait until book 5 comes out.
I have also bought the prequel series to get the background to this series.
