Publisher's Summary

It should be a happy time for India and Matt, but forces beyond their control conspire to ruin their future. A distraction from their troubles comes in the form of murder.

When the editor of The Weekly Gazette is killed, controversial journalist and ink magician, Oscar Barratt, asks India and Matt to investigate. As the recipient of threatening letters written on magic paper, he believes he was the intended target. With suspects ranging from Oscar's brother to guild masters and London's elite, India and Matt have a lot of investigating to do.

But the more they dig, the more dark secrets they uncover; secrets that involve blackmail and an exclusive club of magic collectors who want to preserve the value of their collections. When one of the secrets can give India and Matt the future they desire, will they give in to blackmail or sacrifice their happiness?

Outstanding series!

I started listening to this series because Audible suggested it. I became captivated. I have listened to all the books more than once and was eagerly awaiting the release of the latest installment, The Ink Master's Silence. It does not disappoint! The character development is excellent and the narrator is superb. She makes an already well-written book simply come to life. I have already begun listening to this book again and look forward to reading other series from this author.

Finally!

Book six and FINALLY, well maybe, there's an end to the whining and doubt of whether or not there is a marriage in sight. I was going to quit the series if I had to endure one more book of the heroine's indecision. I could do without the "I couldn't lie..." too.

Anyway, I did like the series. It will be interesting to see how it goes on from here.

Same story...horribly slow. Dim-witted Characters

I skipped over half of the chapters and missed nothing! I am done with this series and shouldn't have purchased this book or the one before it. I kept hoping it would improve......it did not. India has just gotten more clueless and Matt buckles to his family over and over again.
Waste of a credit.

I liked the mystery but didnt care for the ending

I found that the mystery was very good. I didnt really care for the ending or for the fact that Steele lied to Glass. I am still at times bothered that she is so stupid at times. I really don't like her nativity i guess. it makes her appear stupid. But I do like all the other characters.

Now we are asking the right questions!

Finally the characters are asking the same questions that I have been asking! I’m so excited!
I don’t know why the title is what it is. The other titles made sense, but even though this title sounds like the other titles it doesn’t make sense with the story.

Unfortunately like most of the stories in this series, this book doesn’t stand alone very well, and I have to wait forever for the next book to come out. I would suggest waiting until the next book comes out to listen to this one. Unless you don’t mind being tormented with questions about what will come next.
By this book I’ve gotten completely used to the new narrator. Her accents are still a little weird at times and she is still making some repeats and errors but her strange voices have become part of the characters so I hope they keep her. Just get her an editor.

I enjoy this series

I love to escape into books I hope n the future there will be less push to make personal political stances I respect everyone and am completely against any hate but I would truly enjoy stories especially ones set back in older days to be less pointed on making a statement it does nothing for the story I get so tired of the news and negative behavior and treatment I need my stories to just be good old fashioned fiction no agenda just stories that are for fun it should just be common sense by now to treat everyone equal and with love drawing attention to things unnecessarily only makes it an issue when it shouldn't be in those times that wasn't common place knowledge and drawing on it only stirs things just let a fiction be fiction without trying to pull current issues into place I wish everyone would just love and stop pushing things just accept and move forward everything doesn't need to be a political or whatever statement it can just be lighthearted fiction I still enjoy this series and one similar I just wish the pushing of things would stop I think it makes more of a negative point than good I hope authors stop pushing it into places time like 1800 1900 England it makes it obvious that its pointed and like I said causes more unbelievably and negative than help making points in other ways would be more helpful for instance just stop making it a big deal just love one another sorry for a rant but this makes my 2nd or 3rd currently written series in a row that is doing this again just write stories without trying to infuse these things just saying it makes a negative point and positive i hope for more positive light on people treating others with love

Very well read!

Absolutely loved hearing about Matt and India fighting once again for the secret magicians. Marian Hussey read the story brilliantly and was a joy to listen to.

Compelling Series

I've become totally involved in this series, although I'm not keen on series that are 'Serials' rather than complete stories with the same characters - but it is so well written, and the characters of India and Matt, as well as the 'supporting cast' so compelling I had to forgive Ms Archer. As for the narrator, I think Marian Hussy has done fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and, for me, is totally convincing. My only quibble withe the story is that Matt seems to do a lot of 'purring' and although he is a bit of a pussycat, it does get a bit wearing after a while, but he's such a likable character I have to forgive this too, and I was really rooting for him and India to get together.
