Review: Inked Armor by Helena Hunting
When I saw Inked Armor on netgalley I knew I had to find out how it finished (even though I already knew) and the minute I got it downloaded onto my iPad I began reading. That is also the reason why this is going to be a small and vague review, as it was a late night read and I didn't make any notes whilst reading.
Ink Armor picks up a short time after Clipped Wings ends, and the short novellas will fill in this gap if you need to know, but it is easy to pick up Inked Armor and pick up the story without feeling like you have missed out on anything. Both Tenley and Hayden are trying to deal with their own grief and problems.
Hayden is trying to continue with his life, but is still haunted by Tenley and misses her every single second or every single day. He is struggling and the signs are showing with his OCD tendencies getting out of hand. Tenley is trying to deal with the estate she has been left with, her crazy brother-in-law, and finally coming to terms with the death of her entire family.
I enjoyed Inked Armor more than I expected to, I think this one held more of a hold over me due to the tension of wondering if they would get back together or not (yes I know how this ends, but the tension was still there), and when Hayden remembers things from his parents murder it only ups the ante and gets you turning pages even faster.
Inked Armor was a quick, gripping read, and I really liked getting to see more of Hayden and Tenley. One thing I would have loved to see would be picture or images of the tattoo that Tenley gets.
