Some things are permanent


And they cannot be changed back.

Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same. Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future...and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes. Somewhere between reality and myth lies… THE TWIXT


 Having the Sight is not common, when you're actually spotted having it, it's deadly. After Joy spots him it changes her life....and I'm not talking he sweeps her off her feet, he straight stabs her in the eye. Way to make an impression right?!
Confused, hurt and frankly pissed off, Joy is now being bombarded by creatures that range from mythical & strange, to down right ugly. Oddly they're all coming to her with cryptic messages for the same person....Ink....and that's when things get strange. Joy has to deal with being suddenly swept up into the world that she never knew was so close to her, and all the while having to figure things out with her Ink....

 I felt as though Joy was a very well balanced character, for someone who has so much additional drama going on outside of her current situation, she is able to take on the Twixt fairly well. Then there's Ink, I swoon!! You'd think the black eyes would be a turn, no...his innocence to the human race is what makes him beyond appealing. These two teach each other that it's ok to let someone in, they help the other understand what it's like to feel love, and they don't give up no matter what!

 Indelible was amazingly refreshing and so beautifully written that it took my breath away. By the time I got to the end of this book I felt almost giddy, not gonna lie there's a part that made me shed a few tears, but I honestly wish I could read books like this every day. It makes me remember why I started reviewing in the first place.
