Publisher's Summary

In the first installment of the A Fire Beneath the Skin trilogy, the city of Klaar has never fallen. No enemy has ever made it across the Long Bridge or penetrated the city's mighty walls. Even when a powerful invading army shows up at the gates, the duke and his daughter, Rina Veraiin, are certain that it poses little threat.
But they are cruelly betrayed from within and, in a horrific spasm of violence, the city is brought to its knees.
With the help of her bodyguard, Kork, the battle-trained young Rina narrowly escapes the slaughter and makes her way to the lair of an ancient sorcerer - the Ink Mage - who gifts her with a strange, beautiful set of magical tattoos.
Now a duchess in exile, Rina sets out on a quest to reclaim what is rightfully hers, aided by a motley assortment of followers who will help her in her cause - some for noble reasons and others for their own dark purposes.
With the enemy's agents nipping at her heels, Rina must learn to harness her new and startling magical powers if she is to assert her rightful place as ruler of Klaar.

Got my attention fast!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is the first book I've listen to by this author and I must say I was surprised. I would recommend this book simply because this story is an easy read, I moves along, it runs along a good formula that SciFi writers have been using for a long time.


What about Fiona Hardingham’s performance did you like?

She captures the individual's personalities with her performance. I can picture the individual's in my mind and that takes talent. Great choice for this book.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Well actually I did, though it made a very long night. So I listened to it twice

- Jelehan "I'm a Sci-Fi Fan, during a road trip we stopped by a bookstore and I found an audiobook of L. K. Hamiltion's "Cerulean Sins" & I was hooked."

mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings. I loved the premise and the idea of ink magic, but some plot details were questionable. I couldn't help but think of the book as a young adult fiction, but then sex scenes would rudely intervene.
Voice acting was good, but voices of certain characters were too unpleasant.
