I’ve waited SO LONG for this book. And my god it did not disappoint. There are scenes of GENUINE shock. I cried at the end. I hated Longsight SO MUCH. This book rounds off the trilogy so well and I’m so proud of how far Leora came. There’s SO MUCH about this story I can’t wait to shout about.

I didnt feel like this added or took anything away from the initial two books.
We see Leora figuring out how to use her abilities to the best of her ability while being captured and having to take sides.

So I finished this in one afternoon which is usually a great sign but with this not really.
It's still a stunning book cover, but just so much thinner than the last ones. My first reaction was honestly: well if it only took this many pages to finish the story, couldn't it have been a slightly thicker duology?
The book also feels like nothing happens and like the plot is rushed all in one. None of the characters get any further development really, it's just a sequence of weird dream-like actions,

"I told the girl that I loved my scars. And I do. My scars tell my story more clearly than any ink."

Scar is the final book in this trilogy, and before I get into my review I once again have to point out how absolutely stunning those covers are. I'm so in love!!
Scar was a good conclusion to the trilogy. It is a rather short book, but that's ok, because this way, it's not trying to be something it isn't. This trilogy is a littl

The final instalment of the Ink Trilogy picks up right where we left off in the second book. It wraps up the story well, keeping you guessing until the end.

This series just went abit downhill for me. I loved Ink so much. It was amazing and different and I devoured it in one sitting. Spark was strange and felt like a gap filler for the next book so I was excited to see where we ended up after that one but this was just a let down. Nothing majorly happens. I feel like it was all rushed but there was nothing to it. I'm just disappointed.

Well i have to say, the ending wasnt that satisfying to me. Alot of buildup to very little. And even if the book do have a moral story to be told it just ended up being a bit anticlimatic.

I absolutely loved this book. It was such a nice ending to the trilogy (though the first book is my favourite).

This is an amazing conclusion to the trilogy. Some parts really broke me, this story had so much more to it than I was expecting. I am in awe of the world Alice Broadway has created, I loved all the tales and fairytales woven into the story and the constant question in which story to believe.

So, I read the first book (Ink) when it came out and instantly fell in love. I hadn’t even realised the third one was in production yet, let alone being sold when I came across it in Waterstones!
This was a long wait but it was worth the wait.
I have to admit, some parts were a bit gruesome for me but I got by.
The writing is so beautiful and well thought out. I can’t even describe how good it is.
This was a stunning conclusion. Not happily ever after but not terrible either. It’s just realistic,

Great setup, disappointing execution.

Ink was alluring but left something to be desired. Spark was brilliant and left me itching to read the third book... And Scar? To be honest, it's a bit of a disappointment.

This one starts out strong, picking up from the moment where we left Leora in book two. How in the hell is Longsight alive? What will happen to Sana's plans to wage war with the marked, now that their leader is back? These are the questions that spearhead the story.

There is room for a lot o

Scar is brilliant, beautiful, emotional, thought-provoking and powerful.

For me, this is a trilogy about faith. Ink creates a faith based almost exclusively around the dead, the judging of them and the remembrance of them. Spark shows a very different faith, one with more of a Catholic feel to it, with its emphasis on sin, redemption and sacrifice.
Scar takes a step back, and looks at faith, politics and power in a wider sense. It is about the fear of the 'other', how and why we feel threatened by

This is book three in this fantasy/ dystopian trilogy. I wish I had read books one and two more recently, as I found the beginning a bit confusing as I struggled to recall who was who and what had happened previously. I think it would have benefited from a recap at the start.
Having said this, the reader is soon caught up in the excitement of this thriller as you desperately want everything to come good, but have a sinking feeling that it won't. It is impossible to guess what will happen next wit

There are parts of Scar I absolutely adored - it has a really lovely moral and I especially loved the relationship between Leora and Mel in this.

However, there were parts that felt a little rushed too - the mayors story, and the ongoing saga of the main antagonist from either side. There was also a moment with Gull, who I loved, that didn’t really make sense and we don’t get to see any backstory for her on that.

The overall story has probably my favourite feel of all three books though - it fee

You’ve probably already heard of the Ink trilogy – a Young Adult series that’s set in a world where everything important you do is tattooed on your skin, and at the end of your life it’s weighed to see if it’s worth being remembered by society. This is the thrilling conclusion and it’s a very satisfying ending to the series: it is a fairly dark book and not everything is tied up neatly at the end but there’s room for hope. Highly recommended.

Being part of both sides is so hard for Leora, she doesn't truly belong in either one as there are those who think her a traitor or spy in both towns. She's tired of being held up as an example, both for good or bad. But she also has allies on both sides and with her knowledge growing she needs to find the strength deep inside her to try and unite the towns.
I love the way the stories are told, and particularly the comparison of stories from the different sides - the same but opposite.

The first book in this trilogy, Ink, was OK for me. I enjoyed it and really liked the idea behind it. Ink wasn't my best read but I was intrigued enough to pick the second up. So then came Spark and I loved it, the growth and the detail were great. Scar is the third instalment and i was so looking forward to it. Unfortunately I was hugely disappointed .... it's a lot thinner than the first 2 and there are a large number of empty or half filled pages. I found the storyline rushed and not enough d ...more

I'm so so sad that this story is now over but I had such a great time reading it.

The third book wrapped it all up so well and had you guessing how and what might happened to the very last page.
I adored Leora all throughout this story and it's no different in the last installment. She's a wonderful character and I personally learnt alot from her.

Not sure if this is only my wishful thinking but the ending felt like there might be another book/a compainion series coming.

Nice book, and looks extremely nice together with the other two volumes on my shelf.

However the story was not all too satisfying this time. For me there were too many links to christian religion. And the main character Leora also felt like a twig swept away by an enormous stream. I think, after what happened to her she might be as "damaged" as Katniss Everdeen was after three times Hunger Games.

A very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. I thoroughly enjoyed this series of books, the story-line and the character developments.

I actually forgot a lot of what happened in the first two books when I eventually read this one, but there are a few reminders along the way which helped. I would love to see these books turned into a Netflix 10 part series or something. I don't think the story lends itself that well to a movie but I could see it being a really good TV show.

I absolutely loved the first book, and the second one didnt dissapoint. However, i really didnt like this one. I feel like it took a long while to go to an ending that wasnt really and ending, and there was a lack of structure in the story. Then again, i still think its a nice and quick series that does spark some joy :))

This trilogy brings together much of the previous books (as you would expect) with somewhat of a moral and hopeful finish. Lies are exposed, but the end is still not every end neatly tied up (I like that)... I got a little confused sometimes about who’s supposed to be good/bad - but maybe that’s the point!!

I liked this book. It was a conclusion to the triology. But that is all of it, I think. This book felt rushed and incomplete. I feel like there were gaps in it and I feel like parts of the story are missing. I wanted more, but I didn’t get it. I do however like that the love story was in the background, because it should be in this story.
