Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—This sequel to Ink (Harlequin Teen, 2013) picks up where the first volume left off, with American transplant Katie Greene having decided to stay in Shizuoka, Japan, even though it poses serious risk to herself and her boyfriend, Tomohiro. His divine ancestry gives him the power to create sketches that come to life, and Katie's presence heightens this ability—which is quickly growing beyond his control. As their relationship intensifies and Tomohiro grapples with his expanding powers, the couple faces danger from all sides, including the ancient gods of Japan, the Yakuza, and the local police. Katie also faces the very realistic pressures of fitting into Japanese society as a foreigner, navigating traditional gender roles, and memorizing endless amounts of kanji. The story is grounded by a vivid sense of place, opening with the lively atmosphere of a summer festival and taking readers through the ornate beauty of one of Shizuoka's most famous shrines. The author weaves Shinto deities and historical figures like shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa into her version of Japan's mythology, enriching the story with cultural details that set it apart from run-of-the-mill paranormal romance. Like its predecessor, the plot is slow to pick up, but the final third of the book is hard to put aside once the story gains momentum. Expressive ink drawings appear throughout, representing Tomohiro's sketches, and a glossary is included to explain the Japanese dialogue sprinkled throughout the text. Those who enjoyed the first volume will be well satisfied with this one.—Allison Tran, Mission Viejo Library, CA

From Booklist

Katie’s decision to stay in Japan has dramatic consequences in this follow-up to the paranormal romance Ink (2013). Katie is hoping that she can help Tomo learn to control his powers, but the Carrie-esque scenes of ink raining from the sky, flowing from his pores, and running out of faucets suggest that her plan is not working. The situation is further complicated by the discovery that Katie is a manufactured kami; in other words, someone interfered with her mother’s pregnancy to make her so. Fans of Ink will be rooting for Katie and Tomo to overcome their cultural differences and the machinations of outside forces who wish to manipulate Tomo’s volatile powers for themselves. Grades 9-12. --Kara Dean
