Recommendation Fridays: The Twixt by Dawn Metcalf

   I had first discovered this glorious series when I had won Indelible in a GoodReads Giveaway, at first I was a little nervous and not sure what to expect from it's description. But the minute I started reading it I was in, I couldn't put it down. Although I've only read the first two books at this point, I still adore the series because of it's uniqueness and 100% plan on reading the other two in the future, I just haven't got tent a chance at reading them quite yet!
   When you think of Fey or fairies you think of beauty and a species of being that are completely whacked up. You haven't seen anything until you've read this series. The Fey or The Twixt in this case are the weirdest beings you'd ever see, when reading the series you give your imagination a run for it's money. 

   If you want a series that tripy and out of this world, then this is the series for you.

The series would probably be best for people who like the following books:
Fantasy, Paranormal, Fey, Fairies, Magic, Urban Fantasy, Tattoos/Markings

 Indelible by Dawn Metcalf

Release Date: July 30th, 2013

Description from GoodReads:

   Some things are permanent.


   And they cannot be changed back.

   Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.

   Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future...and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.

   Somewhere between reality and myth lies…

Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever.

But when Ink's twin sister, Invisible Inq, calls in a favor, Joy must accept a dangerous mission to find a forgotten door between worlds—a door hiding a secret that some will kill to keep.

But the world of the Twixt is in chaos, and the Council wants someone to blame… Facing a danger greater than any she's ever known, Joy must find the strength to rely on herself as her allies fall away, because Joy is no longer sure just who—or what—she is. She knows only that her deepest secret is also her greatest vulnerability and the key to saving them all.

  1. I LOVED the first two books in this series! Like you, I wasn't sure what to expect, so it was such a pleasant surprise. This is a good reminder that I need to read the next two books. Do you know if Invincible is the final book?
