Book Description

Fifteen-year-old Paige Langley’s life has always revolved around good grades and escaping her less than ideal home life…but once she meets Devon Connors, her life drastically changes.

Although, they share an instant attraction, Devon’s concealing a dark past. And an even darker secret…there’s a dead girl haunting him nightly.

Resolute to win the school’s writing contest, Paige will do just about anything to achieve her goals. So after she finds a binder containing information on a past murder and the illegal activities of the students, she believes the stories are fictional and the perfect way to win the contest.

But the owner of the manuscript, Devon Connors, has other plans. To keep Paige from exposing his secrets, Devon befriends her and even offers to help her write a winning story for the contest.

The chemistry between Paige and Devon is undeniable, but Paige doesn’t know if she can trust him. The deeper she digs into the dark underbelly of their high school, the more she realizes that some secrets are better left buried.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes January 31, 2014
By Dawn
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

The Death of Ink is good as far as it goes. It’s one of those books that just stops and very little is resolved when it ends. I t didn’t even make it to the end of the school year.

Paige Langley is the main character. Even though she’s a 15 year old in the senior class in her new high school, she’s the most normal person in the book. She becomes friends with Devon who I still didn’t quite have figured out by the end of the book. He has headaches and hallucinations but there’s only a partial explanation.

M.M John’s writing is easy to follow most of the time. There were times, though, that I’d start a chapter and wouldn’t know who was talking or who it was about for the first few paragraphs.

The Death of Ink was okay. I think it may be better a part of a series rather than reading it as a stand alone book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot but has room for further improvement January 31, 2014
The book is good but certainly has some issues. One was the title. While the title of the book seem really interesting and somewhat intriguing, I couldn't find any connection to the story whatsoever. I really liked the title, and it was mainly the title that made me choose the book in the first place. I continuously tried to link it to the storyline but no luck. What does the death o fin actually mean? Death of Paige' dream? Death of Devon's plan? death of writing overall? I could not connect.

Paige is an interesting character. She is the lead, and most possibly, the most well sketched character of the book.Her feelings and emotions and confusion at times over Devon are very very well portrayed by the author. She is to do everything staying within the line because of the what her elder sister had done in her past. Living with her grandmother who doesn't want Paige to follow the same footsteps make things tougher for Paige. She cannot write, cannot pursue her future as an author because her aunt is not convinced of this being an actual profession.

Life had inured Paige. At her age, she'd accepted that there were certain things she could not do.

Things take a different turn when she meets the boy from her new school, Devon. Devon doesn't seem to like Paige that much, and he already has a hot girlfriend. And yet, he agrees to help Paige make her dream come true...certainly he has his own reasons, but what? Paige doesn't know.

I loved the mystery element of Devon's character. Compared to Paige, his family background seemed more well-drawn to me. I could easily visualize him as a boy, going through life's happiness and woes, his parents' misery and his sister's tragedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique story! January 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for another amazing tour and M.M. John for giving me the chance to read The Death of Ink.

When I started reading this book I didn’t know what to think. At first, I thought I’m not going to like it. Then a few more pages I wasn’t thinking I can’t possible stop reading. It was like my brain couldn’t take a break, he wanted more so I gave him more. It was so captivating, so enthralling you won’t know what hit you.

Both characters, Paige and Devon haven’t got everything nice and all designed for them. They haven’t got the nicest families, no fame no nothing. Paige wants to be the center of attention to everyone, she wants to be noticed. Devon on the other hand wants to be left alone in his dark corner because he is hiding something and nobody has to find out. After a writing competition between these two, life brings them together. But how can Devon admit he is haunted by his dead girlfriend? This ride isn’t going to be easy.

I can’t really put my finger on Devon. He was a great character, don’t get me wrong, but I got the feeling he was pure darkness. Except from that, both characters were built perfectly. The author really created a perfect story, a perfect world. This is a unique writing style; it will make you addicted to it. I highly recommend this book!
