Karen Chance has lived in France, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, but always comes back to America. She currently lives in Central Florida, the home of make-believe, which may explain a lot.
Marjorie M. Liu is an attorney who has lived and worked throughout Asia. She hails from both coasts, but currently resides in the Midwest, where she writes full-time. When not writing, she enjoys listening to music, painting, designing websites, and returning to old movie favorites, some of which involve light sabers, various applications of the Force, and small green men with pointy ears. She is also, occasionally, commandeered by poodles.
Eileen Wilks is a national bestselling author and a three-time RITA Award finalist, and has been nominated for a Career Achievement Award by Romantic Times.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Magical tatoos are the thread that ties together four substantial short stories by popular urban fantasy authors Karen Chance, Marjorie Liu, Yasmine Galenorn and Eileen Wilks. These stories are just the quick 'fix' to tide us fans over while waiting for the next books in our favorite series but with a nice mix of story, suspense and even a bit of steam they are also great introductions to these authors' wonderful urban fantasy worlds.

"Skin Deep" is Chance's third short starring half werewolf war mage Accalia (Lia) set in Chance's alternate Las Vegas (Lia also appeared in "Rogue Elements" in Wolfsbane and Mistletoe and "Vegas Odds" in Strange Brew) - When Lia's full-blooded were-mate goes missing while he's undercover searching for a were-killer, Lia must try get in touch with her were-blood in order to find Cyrus before he becomes the next victim - I actually really enjoy Lia and her mate Cyrus and would love to read a full length novel with them in the lead, but even in this short format Chance manages to work in a fair amount of backstory (and a little bit of steam) with flashbacks to Lia and Cyrus' past together.

"Armor of Roses" finds Liu's Hunter Kiss heroine Maxine going back in time when she receives a note from the past asking her help. - This was a nice little carve out from the series and it gives just a bit of insight into the reason Maxine's demons are so enigmatic when Maxine timetravels back to WWII China and meets up with her Grandmother.

Thanks to this book (picked up at a second hand store)I have discovered these authors, and am I ever grateful! I loved every story, and have gone on to buy further works by Marjorie M. Liu and wish that Karen Chance would put out a series about Lia the war mage! If she has done so...somebody let me know!!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By H. Grove (errantdreams) TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 12, 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Inked includes four short works. The first, Karen Chance's Skin Deep, finds a war mage trying to deal with a magical ward that has a mind of its own. The problem is, she really can't spare the time and energy to deal with it. Her beloved is missing, and only she can find him. The story is funny, poignant, and gripping, and I immediately went and dropped several of Ms. Chance's books on my wishlist.

Marjorie M. Liu's Armor of Roses introduces us to the latest in a long line of demon hunters. She's investigating a murder, but it seems to lead back to a case her grandmother worked long ago, and her own allies don't want to tell her what's going on. Liu's story gives us a dark and unflinching look at a less well-explored part of World War II, and introduces us to a fascinating legacy.

Yasmine Galenorn's Etched in Silver sets a half-human, half-fae investigator, Camille, on the trail of an extremely dangerous man. She discovers a surprising ally in her task, however, in the form of Trillian, one of a type of Fae few trust. As he sets out to help her, a strange connection seems to form between the two of them. I felt that this one rushed a bit, making it seem a little anticlimactic.

Eileen Wilks's Human Nature takes FBI agent Lily Yu to Northern California to investigate the death of a werewolf. She'd better hurry, however, because there are plenty of people who don't want her to investigate. Right now, she can't even tell how the man was killed, let alone who, or what, might have done it. This tale presented a fascinating mystery, in a world that was presented well and clearly despite the short length of the story. I love Lily as a character, and enjoyed watching the complex dance of were/human politics.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
4 novellas all featuring tattoos of one kind or another; Karen Chance "Skin Deep" -- Lia is on medical leave when her mate werewolf Cyrus is missing and someone is killing werewolves for their skins. Lia has magical tattoos that are wards; Marjorie M Liu "Armor of Roses" -- Maxine Kiss goes back in time to help her grandmother solve a problem. Her tattoos are demons who leave her body at night and protect her by day; Yasmine Galenorn "Etched in Silver" tells the story of how Camille met Trillian as she searches for a rapist and murderer; Eileen Wilks "Human Nature" tells a Lily and Rule story as Lily investigates the death of one of Rule's friends. All the stories were good. I haven't read any others by Liu but found this story enjoyable.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you have been reading any of these four popular author's series, you don't want to miss the stories found in this anthology. For me, just getting the background story of the D'Artigo sisters before they came to earth would be worth the cost of this book but I also enjoyed the other three stories. Ms. Galenorn answers a lot of questions I'd thought of about the D'Artigo sisters and how they ended up on earth working for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. If you haven't started reading this series, this short story is a great introduction to the series. The other three stories happen in between books of their respective series but are all well done. I like anthologies but this is one of the best ones I've read lately if these authors are ones you read. If you have never read any of these authors, each story is a good representation of their work. I recommend this anthologies to anyone who already loves these four authors or loves the new trend towards the darker Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance genres. - Steph B.
