Asylum Interviews: Bronx by Jocelynn Drake

This book was identified as a short story.  It appears to relate to two other books/short stories all under the category of Asylum Tales.   A chastised warlock operating as a tattoo artist makes a new friend and saves a friend from himself.

Ms. Drake paints good characters.  The fallen warlock could have used more back story but was likeable and open minded.   Bronx, the troll, was also a likeable character.   The concept of tattoos having power based on the design and the ink was a novel touch.   I have not seen that anywhere else and it provides a whole realm of possibilities for future stories.

There was adequate action and thought provoking soul searching.   This looks like it will be a good series.
I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
