Society, suitors, and…serial murders?

As much as she desires to please her family, gently-bred herbalist Jessa Caldwell has no intention of making a suitable match—not when she’s seeking the truth about the taint of the fae that lies within her. If she’s to escape the madness brought on by fae-touch, she must devote her energies to seeking a cure.

But then mysterious tattoos begin to appear on the citizens of Avons. None recall receiving these harbingers of death, but all die at the hand of an untraceable killer days or weeks after being marked.

When the tattoo appears on her beloved mentor, Jessa seeks the Magistry with information on the case—yet they refuse to consider her findings, so she must risk both social censure and her own safety to hunt for the killer herself.

Her one possible ally represents her greatest fear—the encroaching Otherworld consuming her mind—and may well undo all her efforts to control her fae-touch. Yet if she forsakes the offered aid, the killer will go free.

Something sinister stalks the streets of her city, and she must decide…how far will she go to stop the killing?

Tattoo of Crimson, a gaslamp fantasy novel, is the first book in the Blood of the Fae series. If you like quick-minded heroines who solve cases with logic and intuition, beautiful yet deadly fae, and Otherworldly intrigues, then you’ll love this mystery set in a world of manners and mythical monsters.

I don’t even know where to start—such a good book! I couldn’t put it down! The plot was gripping, the mystery was intriguing, and I am left on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book in the series. Tattoo of Crimson struck a perfect balance of providing satisfactory answers to the mysteries within this book, while leaving you waiting for future books to get answers to larger, looming questions. The characters also fully endeared themselves to me, and I can’t wait to see their continued development! An absolute must-read!!

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed Tattoo of Crimson. The prequel Whispers in the Waters worked as a teaser, making me curious about Jessa and her world without giving me enough time to really attach…not so here! I was hooked almost immediately. Complex characters, each with their own motives, breathtaking plot twists and glimmers of a possible romance. Jessa is no damsel to be rescued, nor is she a superwoman…she’s a real, relatable, sometimes naive, always indefatigable young woman who counts the cost and stands up to do hard things. I love Chislon’s voice, which echoes older classic styles without being dry or overly verbose. You are swept into a whole world of fae and Other creatures with a story lengthy enough to sink your teeth into and enjoy. Despite its length, it still ended too soon for me! I was left replaying favorite parts, pondering the characters, and wondering what comes next long after I finished. I can’t wait for book two!
