Thorn is a tattoo artist that just happens to be a witch. She is the only tattoo artist that can tattoo vampires, because of her healing magick. When her supernatural customers start to turn up dead, Thorn becomes the #1 suspect. She is the last person to see them alive. Se, a detective investigating the murders, has an instant attraction to Thorn and trys to help clear her of the murders. Thorn will not only need her own magick but the magick of her dead grandmother and the help of her loved ones. This book has a good story and has great flow. The book pulls you in and you want to keep reading. Thorn is a strong female that has been on her own for a long time. Se, is a strong male character that has gentlemen qualities which you don't see too much in male characters, he's just a genuine good guy. There are secrets with all the characters which makes the story even better. Everyone has their own agenda.

I really liked this book. I will agree with Mighty Jesse that the characters are too good to be true, but that is the only thing I can find wrong with this story. It is fun to read, has plenty of paranormal,magic, etc. and some romance as well. Way to go Jessica McBrayer!

Stained is a great read. It took me a little while to warm to the story through the first few chapters but before I realized it had even happened, I was all wrapped up and ended up reading it through the night! It has all of my favorite things - a strong woman, a sexy man, tattoos, Irish charm...you name it! This is definitely a different book than her other series, but I dig it. Plus, Sé is so dreamy, Uncle Charles is adorable and I want my own Raven. Haha. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next with Caleb!

This book doesn't move too fast. The images are so vivid that you don't want to put the book down. The heroes are flawed, which for me makes them more enjoyable. When you start talking to the characters as you read, you know you've found a good read.

"Stained" is a wonderfully written urban fantasy book, complete with vivid characters and intriguing plot line. Can easily see the book leading to a sequel or series and look forward to reading them and following up with these great characters.

STAINED captured my attention from the first paragraph and kept me hanging on for more through to the end - I never wanted to put the book down. Such a great mix of murder, mystery, magic, and romance - and I could vividly picture everything that happened in my head. I can't wait to read the next book by Jessica McBrayer!

I read this book after my wife had finished. I was surprised how quickly I was engaged in the book. The characters were well developed. I enjoyed the fact that the characters Thorn and Se had a awkward relationship at the beginning of the book and everything did not fall together perfectly. It came across as a realistic relationship. I look forward to following the next story and hopefully the storyline will give some more information on the Japan back story and I can't wait to have the storyline in Ireland.

"Stained" is an enjoyable, colorful and astonishingly well written novel. As someone with a background in Paganism, I was overwhelmed by the author's obvious efforts to getting the details of a witch's practices correct. While the book is fantasy, there are many books that take creative license beyond the relate-able. such is not the case with this book. Ms. McBrayer's research and hard work shine through in the spells that preface each chapter, the descriptions of the traditions passed from one generation to the next, and yet, the information is never dry.
I could sit and reiterate what the book is about, because I do so love the heroine, Thorn, and think that Se (pronounced Shay), her man, is truly hot, but frankly, i think it is more important how the book made me feel. Having health issues, I use reading to distract myself, and this book is so easy to immerse yourself in, and yet is never, ever, simple. You must be intelligent to read this, thanks to the lack of 'dumbing down' that many authors choose to do with subjects that may not be something super familiar for most. This author obviously knows the value of creating a vision with words that allows you to 'see' the images.
So if someone was to ask me if I recommend this book, my answer would be a resounding yes. With few writing errors, truly colorful characters, and altogether interesting subjects, this would appeal to anyone with a taste for fantasy/mystery/romance. My thanks to the author for sharing her abundant talent with those of us needing that escape!!!
