Tragic Ink is one of the amazing stories in the multi-author collaboration that is Havenwood Falls. This particular one is by Heather Hildenbrand.

Gwen Facharro is a tattoo artist who lives and works in Havenwood Falls. She isn't just a normal tattooist though. If she chooses, she can instil magic into her tattoos which make them come to life one time only when called upon by the wearer. When she realises that people were getting hurt by the tattoos being used for bad purposes she stopped inking

This was an great story full of murders, secrets, romance and magic. The story quickly draws you in and the idea of tattoos infused with a life of their own defiantly sparks your imagination. I loved how the story unfolded, it had suspense, loss, twists and intrigue. Gwen and Ryes are excellent characters and you can’t help but feel the sorrow, fear, love and determination right along with them. This was a fast paced, very enjoyable novella and I hope the author will write more stories about the ...more

I absolutely loved Rhys and enjoyed seeing Gwen’s growth throughout the story.

Another hit for Havenwood Falls!!!

Tragic Ink is a Novella by Heather Hildenbrand. I have to admit that I wasn't sure about several authors writing with a cohesive vision of a complex and diverse setting like this series, but I'm blown away with each installment. Each novella is stand alone and builds one every other story and characters. With each novella, I can't wait to read more and find out more of the hidden secrets that are so a part of this world. This Novella explores the talents of Fae

This book is about Gwen Facharro's and Rhys' story and to say the least it was awesome. This book had so many twist's and turn's and emotions I just couldn't put it down until it was finished. As with all of the book I have read in this series there is always something someone found out that was either kept from them or that they were sent away and had forgotten. This story was no exception to that but with all of the deceit and lies it turns out to be in the best interest of the supernatural's. ...more

Beautifully Exciting

I can't say it enough how much I love Heather's writing and bringing her into the Havenwood Falls series just added to her greatness. This story was wonderful and even though I gripped at her for making me cry way too early in the book, I still loved it.

In the words of Sheriff Kasun...."Can we ever have a normal night?" That line just made me laugh and think to myself... Never in Havenwood Falls. And you know what? That's what makes these series of books so great.... Who want

Another great story in the Havenwood Falls series.
I love these stories and this little supernatural town.
This story kept me captivated from the very first page.
Gwen has a tattoo studio in Havenwood Falls and has the ability to spell tattoos because of her Fae heritage. Rhys has been assigned to protect Gwen at all costs, even rejecting her feelings for him and watching her from a distance for years. These two have a deep connection to one another and it takes the death of someone close to the

Tragic Ink by Heather Hildenbrand was probably one of the most unique stories that I have read for Havenwood Falls. I loved the storyline and the imagination of the book. I have read a few other books by Heather and as with the others, she did not disappoint!

We are introduced to Gwen and Rhys in Tragic Ink and I loved both of those characters. One thing I really love with the Havenwood Falls stories is that they have so many strong female leads as does Tragic Ink. The story delves into Gwen find

It's becoming more and more apparent that Havenwood Falls is a dangerous place to live, policed by law enforcement offices who appear to dislike everyone!

This addition to the Havenwood universe has us once again thrust squarely in the thick of things, and although I haven't come across these characters before, they were introduced so well that I never felt confused.

Rhys & Gwen's connection is endearing and doesn't play second fiddle to the plot or vice versa.  Both work in tandem to develop

This book drew me in immediately. Gwen is not your ordinary tattoo artist. While she spends her days in a tattoo studio producing wonderful pieces of art. These pieces of art are not your ordinary tattoos, they are magical. Under the wrong hands, they can become deadly. Unbeknownst to Gwen, she has been assigned a protector-Rhys. Evil forces want to claim Gwen's incredible power. Gwen must set aside her differences with Rhys and trust that he will not only protect her from the people who want to ...more

Tragic Ink

As part of Ang'dora Productions Review Crew I was able to read Heather Hildenbrand’s Tragic Ink as an advance review copy.

Tragic Ink introduces us to more of the Seelie and Unseelie world within Havenwood Falls. Add a large dash of Fae magic mixed well with tattoo ink, an unwelcome visitor and more than one murder, and Heather Hildebrand serves up a fantastic novel to blend with the rest of the Havenwood Falls series. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Gwen and Rhys soon.

Fantastic read

Heather did an amazing job inking this story full of magic and mayhem. Gwen has a secret that is both frightening and dangerous, also makes her a highly wanted tattoo artist. Rhys tries to protect her and keep her safe after a murder that leads them on a journey with many twist. Gwen has a tough exterior that is hard to break through as she doesn't allow people to get close to her. This story is filled with twists and laugh out loud moments and takes you on a journey as you read it

I really enjoyed this story and the ending made me cheer for Gwen as she met her mother. This was a suspenseful story with a touch of romance that had me hooked from the beginning. It was a fairly quick read taking between 3-4 hours to complete. I don't usually read mysteries but the HAvenwood Falls books excel at it and keep me entertained from beginning to end. I'm definitely a fan and I look forward to more from this author.

Gwen works at her tattoo shop and tends to keep to herself as much as possible. However, once her adopted mother is killed, she may not have a choice but to trust the one man that she doesn't want to be near. I really loved this book. Gwen is wonderful and stubborn. She is planning on finding out who killed her mom and is even willing to trust Rhys. I loved the ending and hope that we find out more in the future!

I really liked this story. Part love story part mystery. I wanted a bit more of the why and maybe I am missing part of the royalty line within the fae and Seelie Court that would explain it all better. That could be me. Gwen is a stubborn girl with an amazing talent, but nobody likes being left in the dark to what is going on. I can't wait to read more of Gwen and her ability. I did receive this ARC for an honest review.

A good mystery

This was way different than what I have read by Heather before. I got drawn into it from the moment I started the book until the very end. Magic, mystery and ghosts, what more could you ask for??

Quick read, flows well and the characters have an off the charts chemistry. Get this book now!!

What was not to love about this book!! I was hooked from page 1. Murder, secrets, romance, and of course amazing characters brought this story to life. I love the Havenwood Falls series and this was an excellent addition.

There's murder and mystery aplenty in this Havenwood Falls novella. With twists and turns from beginning to end you won't want to put Tragic Ink down. Watch out for a few cameos from some of your favourite characters from previous books too.

Another fabulous read in havenwood falls. I loved the touch on the gargoyles! This story was deep. It had a lot of emotions packed in each character. Gwen has a very talented gift one she saw as a burden. But in the end she started to see the good in it

A great read, I really enjoyed following Gwen as she discovered that her past wasn't exactly as it seemed. Her life as a tattoo artist had more twists and turns that she didn't comprehend and her feelings for Rhys were more complicated than even she knew.

Loved this one! It was so interesting and unique with the magical tattoos! I enjoyed the characters and their relationship. The story was fast pace and fun. A definite must read for this series!
