INK by Damien Walters Grintalis

October 4th, 2012 by Jay Comments

Release date: December 4, 2012
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

A tattoo can be a work of art…or a curse. The devil is in the details.The fearsome griffin inked on Jason’s arm looks real enough to climb off and take flight. Jason thinks his new tattoo is perfect. Until he wakes up one night to find his arm temporarily ink free. Until he finds a brick wall where the tattoo shop should be.

As Jason’s world spins out of control, he comes to realize a truth as sharp as the griffin’s talons. The tattoo is alive, it’s hungry, and if Jason tries to kill it, he’ll die. The artist will remove it for a price, but he’s not interested in money or Jason’s soul. He wants something far worse…
