Publisher's Summary

There was love. And finally there was peace.
He found Lashae, the most beautiful woman Edsel had ever seen. For two blissful years they lived together in peace along with Aiden, the boy Edsel had promised he would care for.
There were nightmares.
Edsel couldn't come to terms with The Ink, the abomination that covered his body and stopped him from ever being able to forget the past.
Cover it up. Black - to obliterate the memories.
But could it really be that simple? All they could do was try. But as one nightmare began to fade, so a new one took its place. Peace is shattered and once again Edsel has to fight for his family. This time he would let nothing stop him from keeping them safe. But he was forgetting one important thing.
There is no escaping The Ink.

Nothing different from book one

Every writer who writes a series will have the same format from book to book. The first book was original, logical and flowed, pretty much. This four-hour book two is a total disaster. In the post-apocalyptic society, resources are limited, people stay to themselves, and Ink is still a point of salvation/shame.

Edsel is still psychological damaged over his inking. He is shy of showing his body and whines about his discomfort constantly. Now we must endure his traumatization of covering the red with black red ink. The process is so stressful for Lashae, his girlfriend, to leave for a timeout before she has finished inking with black.

I wish I took a time out too. We must endure hearing his same complaints about his physical discomfort as before; the drying, chafing, cracking of skin.

For some reason that is never explained, Edsel is on the most wanted list by the Eventuals. He is now a symbol of achievement for any Eventual for his capture. The action that follows is s a total repeat of book one; Eventuals recapturing and re-inking Edsel, Edsel’s escape to saves love ones; the lack of weapons/skill to defend himself, the travel difficulties in post-apocalyptic societies; blocked highways, gas shortage and walking; Edsel being the fox in the Eventuals fox hunt chase; he has a time frame to save his family, his physical discomfort from inking and leaving a comfortable home. This time, Edsel’s back is up against the wall with the threat of the Eventualsl inking/killing his family, not a dog this time, if he does not make it in time.

If you like the action of them running for their lives (which only starts in the second half of the book) from the same enemy, constricted by his physical condition, then buy it. I wanted a little more.
