I purchased this one from Amazon.co.uk. The cover depicts Parker a friend of Gage's, and the tattoo he ends up having doe in a drunken moment. He has a problem, he's desperate for help so desperate rather than wait for friend Gage t give him the tattoo that is meant to cure all, he lets newcomer Bronx do the tattoo. The tattoo goes wrong, though Gage admits it could easily have happened to him too. So Gage has to call in favour's here and there to get the potion ingredients to sort out the tattoo. Yep Gage has magical abilities, he used to live in the dreaded Towers, but escaped, with many conditions on his freedom.
I like the characters in this series. In this novella we meet Bronx, the rather large troll and latest to drop by Asylum for an Interview to work at the parlour. Does he get the job after the mishap with Parkers tattoo? And do Gage, Bronx and Parker come up with a solution to Parkers increasingly urgent problem?
So did I enjoy the book? Yes! Would I recommend the book? Yes, though feel I should point out that this series is adult aimed so has adult aimed content. Will I read more of the Series? I already have! and want to read more. Would I read more by Jocelynn Drake? Yes I intend to!
