[Kat Dubois Chronicles Book 1]

An Egyptian Mythology Urban Fantasy

The gods are gone. Her brother is missing. One retired assassin must confront her past to save his future…

Immortal Kat Dubois has traded in her sword for a flask. Hard drinking helps ease the grisly memories of her former trade: an assassin of immortals. She’s perfectly content to spend eternity in her Seattle tattoo parlor…until the mysterious disappearance of her brother finally brings her out of retirement.

With a charmed deck of tarot cards and her trusty sword, Kat sets off to track down her brother and save his soul. A wicked corporation and a laundry list of old rivals stand in the way of her quest. For someone with an eternity to live, Kat's chances of unraveling the mystery become less likely with each passing second…

Ink Witch is the first book in a tough-girl urban fantasy series set in Seattle, WA. If you like intense action, gritty characters, unconventional magic, and Egyptian mythology, then you'll love this unique, fast-paced adventure. Perfect for fans of Kim Harrison, Karen Marie Moning, and Nalini Singh!

 The Review 

★★

This was a difficult book to get through. Generally, I make it a rule to finish the books I review, but this one was no an easy read. There were so many short, quippy references made by the main character to different stories in the series, but then she would say something like, "But that's a story for another time," leaving you not curious about that thread to the story, but annoyed that there was a piece of seemingly important information left out, and an obvious nudge to buy that book. These references make the narration of the story somewhat "choppy" and more distracting than helpful to the plot.

The plot is interesting, but I found it hard to like Kat. I get that she's had trauma and, being an assassin, she's become hardened, but she's so angry with no redeeming characteristics. Also, there's the frequent mentions of Kat's actual age, which is almost 40 years old, but because of an unexplained incident that happened in another book, she's "stuck" in an eighteen year old body, along with all the hormones 

To sum the review up - I just didn't get or like this book, so I'm sorry to say that I have to give it a two star review.😒

[NOTE: I received this book as a FREE Amazon Kindle book.]
