Synopsis by StoryEdit

"Skin Deep" by Karen Chance — Cassie #4.4

The tale of a war mage in Las Vegas who stumbles across an ominous magical ward that appears as a dragon on her skin–and has a mind of its own. ~ Inked Anthology | Dark Faerie Tales

"Armor of Roses" by Marjorie M. Liu — Hunter Kiss #3.5

Demon slayer Maxine Kiss investigates a grisly murder at a high-class soirée, she finds herself involved in a conspiracy dating back to World War II–and a secret mission that her grandmother may have carried out for the US Government, one that involves the mysterious “Armor of Roses.” ~ Inked Anthology | Dark Faerie Tales

Per Author: Based off one of my favorite Rumi poems, and is a Hunter Kiss story: When an old man hands Maxine a message from her dead grandmother, she is forced to travel back in time to World War II Shanghai, in order to stop a murderer who is killing people in the present. ~ INKED - anthology | Marjorie M.

"Etched in Silver" by Yasmine Galenorn — Otherworld #0.5

Asupernatural agent is on the trail of a sadistic serial killer, when an unexpected ally comes to her aid, setting in motion a magical ritual that may end up binding them together, body and soul. ~ Inked Anthology | Dark Faerie Tales

"Human Nature" by Eileen Wilks — Lupi #4.7

When the heavily tattooed body of a man is found in a Northern California town, FBI Agent Lily Yu is drawn into the case. Trouble is, the victim wasn’t human–and the killer isn’t finished.~ Inked Anthology | Dark Faerie Tales

Lily Yu turns twenty-nine—a marker she’s decidedly ambivalent about. Her birthday celebration is cut short when the naked, heavily tattooed body of a man is found in a California town. At first it seems like a bizarre ritual killing, but there’s more than magic afoot. The victim, David Pruitt, wasn’t human . . . and years ago, he was Rule Turner’s closest friend. (Note: story occurs before those in Mortal Sins. It’s April, four months after the Turning;) ~
