She was wrong. Murmur is walking around her world in someone else’s body, and without him, Isa is losing control of her magic. Then, in the middle of rush hour, a Live Tattoo comes off its host, killing over a hundred people. Isa discovers that Murmur’s nemesis, Uriel—a demon she believed defeated—is responsible. He’s seeking the power to force his way back into Isa’s world. If he succeeds, everyone Isa loves will be destroyed. There may be a way to stop him, but it will mean sacrificing Murmur—or herself… Includes a preview of the Living Ink Novel, Nightmare Ink Praise for the novels of Marcella Burnard: “Burnard is a genuine gift to the genre!”—*RT Book Reviews “A huge hit!”—Night Owl Reviews “Thrilling!”—USA Today bestselling author Susan Kearney Marcella Burnard, author of Nightmare Ink, graduated from Cornish College of the Arts with the ever-practical degree in acting.
