I am generally a Riley Poe fan. I enjoyed the first 2 books in this series, where tattoo artist Riley Poe becomes entangled in the world of vampires. In book 3, Riley is still dealing with the aftermath of having 2 vampire bites. Victorian warns that Riley needs help, but of course neither Riley or Eli, or any of Eli's family listen. So, Riley begins changing and not in a good way. To bring Riley back, drastic measures will have to be taken, the question is whether it will be too late.

The Dark Ink Chronicles is a series that started out edgy and oh so cool featuring a tattooed rocker protagonist, a steamy Southern setting, and a deliciously dangerous love interest. The sequel was a tad disappointing with a much slower pace and not as much character development as I was hoping for. Sadly, EVENTIDE, the latest installment, is even more of a let down.

Where do I start? EVENTIDE feels like a rush job. Not the pacing, which is sluggish at...more

**3.5 stars**

Now that Riley has been bitten by both Valerian and Victorian, she's having to deal with a lot of strange voices and happenings and sometimes she's unsure what's real and what's not. On top of all that, she doesn't tell anyone and continues to act as if everything is alright. Things only fall apart when she can no longer account for huge losses of time and ends up attacking people she cares about.

Okay...I liked the book but it's just a tad confusing and for about 65% of the book, yo...more
Actually rating: 1.5, but rounded up to 2 as 1 just seemed a little too harsh.

I’m done. I can’t take it anymore. The first book in this series was great and had enormous potential. But now with each new book the series is completely going downhill. Riley is no longer the character that I loved in book one. She’s annoying and whiny and although she has gone through physiological changes, I would have thought her character development would have gone a lot different. Really none of the characters...more

Riley knew having vampire venom running in her veins would mean increasing un-human tendencies but she never thought she’d actually turn. Valerian’s venom is acting on its own though and slowly Riley is turning into the thing she never wanted to be. Flying across the world and putting her trust into people she doesn’t know may be the only way to stop the progression. Victorian and Valerian’s father may be the key to saving her from herself. But what will have three powerful vampires venom do to...more
I really tried to read this slowly, I wanted to make it last, savor it. But instead I found myself devouring it. I couldn't stop thinking about Riley, Eli, Vic and the whole damn cast of awesome characters.
There's so much that can't be said without ruining the experience for everyone else.
In this book we are introduced to more vamps, werewolves and immortal beings. I hope that means that the series will continue instead of this being the last book in the series.
I really feel for Eli, he loves...more

Riley is going through changes. Having been bitten by Victorian and Valerian, she has all that strigoi power in her and is starting to take over.

At first it's just dreams, then she's losing chunks of time. Her tendencies are becoming more evident and harder to fight. But of course, Riley thinks she can handle everything herself. Even when she's getting out of control.

The pace of this book was a bit slow, I think, and a lot of that is because we...more

*Gizmo's Review*

Riley Poe is having all sorts of problems this time out. She's been kidnapped by Victorian who wants to run away with her to Romania and make her his forever. She's been losing track of time, she's having hallucinations, she see's herself actually killing and drinking blood from humans, and her superhuman powers may be causing more problems than they're worth.

Her brother Seth, and best Friend Nyx, are scary worried about Riley but can't do...more
I loved AFTERLIGHT and was not so into EVERDARK but EVENTIDE got me a little more excited about the future of the Dark Ink Chronicles series.

EVERDARK ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and EVENTIDE picks up exactly where it left off. I have always liked Riley. She is funky, is comfortable in her own skin and loves and protects those close to her. She is still struggling with the venom coursing through her body and book 3 deals with her losing chunks of time and not knowing what she is doing. She e...more
Eventide (Dark Ink Chronicles #3) by Elle JasperIf you read just one paranormal series this year, let it be THE DARK INK CHRONICLES. They’re sexy. They’re evil personified. They’re adventure, passion and one hell of a freaky ride! Bet you can’t stop at book one because the journey to the end of book three is the best part yet!

EVENTIDE, book three of THE DARK INK CHRONICLES, continues where EVERDARK, book two, left us anxiously waiting for what happens next in this addictive series. I can’t tell you about EVENTIDE without spoiling part of AFT...more
I didn't expect this!!! WoW!!!

I loved Elle Jasper's first two books and I think Riley and Eli are fabulous, this book, however, took me totally by surprise...

I knew that Eventide had to pick up from where Everdark left off and that somehow the adventure had to draw to some sort of closure... and it did, but it has marked the beginning of something totally unexpected and new...

Riley meets new people, or maybe I should say new types of beings and this is where the story is going to go in the futur...more
What can i say, Im falling for the underdog like always.Im starting to develop feelings for the lovely Victorian even though Eli definitly won me over by the end with his little shocker. I look forward to the next book with these new "creatures" added to the story. It'll be a pleasent change from the vampire theme. I loved the dark Riley and making her stronger and even more kick ass. It was a really interesting turn of events. But i do kinda find the fact that everyone wants RIley a little tire...more

3.5 stars...Full review to follow, twimom227.com ... but here's a teaser!

Riley Poe has 'tendencies,' and she's not just your average tat artist with awesome ink and quirks. She's more. Four times more. Not only is she a phenomenal artist, she knows how to kick ass and take names later! Eligius Dupree...dreamboat that he is, is completely and utterly in love with her. With a bunch of vampires, werewolves and others in the mix, the story is full of surprises!
Nedense bu seriyi okumayı seviyorum. Çok ahım şahım değil ama bana yetiyor :)
Review to come
The covers to this series are gorgeous!
The author has developed likable characters and has some great ideas but there is something about the execution of those ideas that fall a bit flat for me. The action takes forever to happen and when it finally does is over in a few pages...very anti-climatic!
Another point that I found really irritating...the constant repetition:
#1 OK after the 100th time...I can't believe Eli loves me and Eli is so gorgeous...please Elle Jasper have some compassion for m...more

Quick & Dirty: Wild ride.

Opening Sentence: I can still hear the human screams inside my head.

The Review:

I guess it could be said that I did like this book. Jasper’s imagery and settings are well written, and she does have an innate ability to put your mind right where she wants it, geographically. Her characters are sexy, their thoughts and actions exactly what you would expect of them, and you can practically hear their voices, with those awesome accents,...more

How did we end up here?

It’s the third book in the series and it would appear I’m developing a liking for PNR smut. I’ll take it.

Okay, book. You've got fifty pages. Go!

I’m watching Riley quickly de-evolve into this unlikable super snatch and it’s kind of cranking my ass. Since I could read the book in a sitting I’m just going to follow through until the end. Plus I’ve come this far so why not?

What worked . . .

The last third or so of the book was its own redemption, really. I finally got to see th...more
3.5 Stars

I really wanted to enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first two in this series--but somehow along the way, the story lost its fizz and just can't stand up against the seductiveness of Afterlight and Everdark.

Eventide starts off where Everdark ended: Riley has been taken by the Russian strigoi vamp, Victorian, and she experiences haunting images/dreams. And worse, she is losing time--hours--where she doesn't remember what she has done, much less, how the hell she got there.

Her d...more

Eventide picks up where book 2, Everdark, left off. Riley has been bitten by both Arcos brothers and Victorian uses his power of suggestion to abduct her. His intention is to take her to his father to counteract the effects of his evil brother, Valerian’s bite. But his plan is foiled when Eli, true to his word, comes for Riley. He takes her with him as Victorian leaves them with an ominous prediction that Riley is changi...more

Riley Poe is tattoo artist with vampiric tendencies. Something is happening to Riley that nobody expects least of all her. She keeps losing time, can't remember what she's doing from one moment to the next, and her personality is changing from her bright cheerful self to mean spirited and uncaring person. Seth, Nyx, and Eli are all worried about Riley but she swears that she's fine and nothing is wrong with her. Victorian Arcos realizes that something is really wrong with Riley and tries to get...more
This is the third book in The Dark Ink Chronicles. In this book Riley is starting to feel changes from being bitten by two Strigoi vamps, Victorian and Valerian. She tries to stay strong but there is a darkness inside of her that is growing and slowly starting to take over. Eli, her vamp boyfriend is starting to notice the changes in her and is worried. He constantly stays by her side watching and it's driving Riley crazy. Victorian, who still talks to Riley in her head, is feeling the darkness...more
I'm not sure why I've been so sucked into this series, at first I was really drawn to Riley's strong stubborn character and her kick ass attitude. I'm also a huge tattoo fan so to have a main character of a paranormal book own and run a tattoo parlor was kick ass for me. I really liked that she is a no nonsense girl that had cleaned up her act to take care of her little brother. Now my problem that I've found is she doesn't stand up to her tough girl hype she's a huge push over when everything i...more
Riley Poe managed to get bitten by two very powerful strigoi at the beginning of the series. She is now mentally linked with both Arcos brothers, Victorian - the not-so-bad vampire and Valerian - the really-really-bad vampire. Not only can she talk with both of them, inside her head, she has slowly begun the transformation into one of them and into something truly evil. Riley's visions have continued in "Eventide" but now they are taking away chunks of time. What only seems to be a few minutes i...more
“We’re vampires, Riley” he says pulling back and smiling, “No need to email when you can cyber chat”- he taps my temples- “here.”

Riley Poe is a world famous tattoo artist living in Savannah, Georgia with her adoptive godparents helping to raise her younger brother. Riley is not your average human, she is actually a human with tendencies after being bitten by two vampire brothers and was very lucky to escape being changed into one herself. Riley may not want to be a vampire but she is in love wit...more

What did I think??? Hmmm...I bought Eventide the day it was released and didn't finish it until now. It sat on my Nook while I read books in between periodically reading a chapter here or there of Riley Poe's P.O.V...I loved LOVED the first two books in this series. Eventide was probably one of the books I was looking forward to be being released this year. I was kind of disappointed and I'll tell you why. Riley lost her sparkle, her pizazz. The first half of the book feels very repetitive with...more

As seen on Rabidreads.ca:

Eventide is most remarkable in the way it presents itself on the page. Plenty of spacing between lines. Healthy doses of italics. Rather large epigraphs. It makes for an inviting read of a well-built character. Riley Poe may not be the most straight-laced of the residents of Savannah but she is willing to admit that and much much more.

Perhaps because of the line-spacing her thoughts feel less dense than they should. I should specify this book is written in a hard f...more

Elle Jasper spent her youth buried in the pages of Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and Stephen King. Growing up on the salt marshes of Savannah, Georgia, she was always fascinated by the city’s ancient cobblestones, eerie church spires and Gothic Revival architect—as well as the dark, not-so-publicized side of Savannah, both steeped in tumultuous history. After an education at Armstron...more
