Disappointing compared to the first book in the series. I loved the first book so much I read it in two days and went together the rest of the books in the series immediately. Ink Exchange just didn't grab me the way Wicked Lovely did. I didn't like Leslie much as a main character, I wanted to feel some sympathy for her due to the horrible things she had been subjected to, but I just...didn't. Niall's obsession was creepy and annoying. And I didn't see how a tattoo for Leslie will make everything better.I did however, enjoy the world building, I loved learning more about the Dark Court and the types of fairies that lived there and how they interacted and played with mortals and it was more the world building that got me through this that the characters.The story did get a little better towards the end of the novel but all in all just not as good as the first book.
