Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Like most girls, Joy thought love would steal her breath away. Little did she suspect that it would try to cut her eye out instead! Indelible Ink and his sister, Invisible Inq, are Scribes, otherworldly beings who mark humans with the Sight for their particular clans. Joy has the dubious honor of being able to see them, while nobody else can. Now she has been marked by Ink, and their connection is much more than skin deep. Joy is being pulled between her world and Ink’s realm of Twixt, and their love may not be powerful enough to overcome the threats that stand in their way. Metcalf’s lush descriptions make the world of Twixt burst with sensory details, and readers will identify with Joy’s head-in-the-clouds reaction to Ink’s intoxicating effects. First in a new series, this will appeal to romance and fantasy readers who prefer their attraction peppered with mysterious lore. Give this one to readers who couldn’t get enough of Karou and Akiva in Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone (2011). Grades 10-12. --Erin Downey Howerton

Customer Reviews

The characters are also developed very well.
Jennifer Miller
I just finished this book feeling really frustrated, and even more than that disappointed, as I was really expecting this book to be good!
I love good paranormal and fantasy novels and the Fae always promise an entertaining story!

After I saw this beautiful cover for the very first time, I immediately looked up what the unique title actually meant. The dictionary gave me two different definitions that shape the story as a whole, thus picking the perfect title. Indelible is defined as:

1. Not able to be forgotten or removed
2. (of ink or a pen) making marks that cannot be removed

To put it simply, this story has made an incredibly indelible impression on me, and I have no doubt that it will do the same to all who pick it up.

What made this story so awesome was the world-building. Metcalf managed to captivate me from page one because, like Joy, I had no clue what was going on the day that her already damaged world truly spun out of control when a mysterious boy with pitch black eyes stabbed her in the eye, marking her as his own. I so desperately want to sit here and explain this complicated and deliciously complex world to you, but I refuse to do so because one of the things that kept me anxious and on my toes was the potential discovery of a new bit of information involving this world. I want you to experience the thrills of learning about this unique world yourself so that you can truly love this book as much as I did. It's just that worth it! Metcalf's world-building was superb, I have no other way to describe it.

And, let me tell you, the characterization was not half bad either. I enjoyed Joy because of her acceptance of the crazy circumstances that is her life. Her best friend, Monica, and her love of sex and innuendo despite being the youth group leader at church brought up a lot of laughs. But what I really loved were the characters found in The Twixt--our monstrous world full of the myths that you never hoped come true.

To begin, Ink and Inq.

Thank you to Harlequin Teen for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review.

Indelible is one strange novel with an extremely original premise and out of the ordinary mythology. Metcalf definitely explores uncharted paranormal territory in Indelible; I definitely give Metcalf props for thinking out of the box with this book. The problem is that I really wanted to like Indelible, but it was one of those "It's not you--it's me" cases. Indelible is by no means a bad novel, it's just not my cuppa tea. I have a feeling that Indelible will strike a chord with many readers, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking to read.

Immediately straight from the first-few pages, Metcalf creates a mysterious vibe that the reader won't be able to shake off. There was a ton of intrigue in the beginning of Indelible that urged me to delve further into this novel. Indelible introduces to the reader to a world unlike any other and I loved how Metcalf slowly, eased the reader into it. The problem was that this world wasn't all that memorable and that I felt like I was split between two worlds.

There's a scene in Indelible where Joy is told by Ink that she has to choose between the human world and the world of The Twixt. I felt like throughout the novel I was caught in a limbo between the two worlds. Metcalf creates an interesting contemporary world to contrast the world of The Twixt, but they didn't blend too well. Whenever I felt invested in the world of The Twixt, I felt like Metcalf quickly rushed me into the contemporary world. The vice-versa is also true for Indelible and I feel like the author didn't transition well between the two worlds. I hoped the two worlds would coexist in a better matter like in other Urban Fantasy novels like The Mortal Instruments.

Format: Paperback
Right after I started reading this book, I glanced at the reviews on Goodreads and was disappointed to see that the first several reviews I ran across were either negative or pretty neutral. (I know - I shouldn't look, but I just can't help it - sometimes when I'm reading a book I haven't really heard of, I just like to get an idea of what I'm in for). So, I started the book with relatively low expectations, ready to be disappointed. But the further I got into the book, the more I found myself thinking, "What is it that those people didn't like? Maybe it gets worse as the book goes on." I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it never did. In fact, I found myself LOVING this book and kind of dreading the end (I'm really glad to see there's going to be a sequel)!

The book centers around Joy Malone, a 16-year-old girl who is accidentally marked by a Scribe named Ink - a supernatural being whose purpose it is to mark humans for the Folk (spiritual beings) who claim them. Her mark brands her as Ink's property and helper (and as his lover) and suddenly she finds herself being terrorized by faeries, monsters and spiritual beings who want to use her to get to Ink. And, as she becomes more and more deeply embroiled with the Twixt (the spiritual realm), she learns that she may have more of a place there than she first thought and that some of the Folk might have darker motives than either she or Ink ever imagined.

The negatives:

Slightly confusing in parts.
Okay, I do have to hand it to some of those naysayers - there were parts of this book that were a little confusing. It took a little while to understand who the Scribes were and what they did.

More About the Author

Dawn Metcalf has no good excuse for the way she writes. She lived in a normal, loving, suburban home, studied hard, went to college, went to graduate school, got married, had babies, and settled down in northern Connecticut. Despite this wholesome lifestyle, she has clearly been corrupted by fairy tales, puppet visionaries, British humour, and graphic novels. As a result, she writes dark, quirky, and sometimes humorous speculative fiction.
