Joy has had some serious changes happen in her life throughout the past year, but what happens at the Carousel Dance Club completely turns her world upside down.  It all starts when Joy sees a boy with pitch black eyes.  Instead of dancing with her like Joy expects, he tries to cut out her eye.  However, the boy, Ink, accidentally marks her as his lehman, his lover, confidant, etc., bringing Joy into a magical and dangerous world full of banshees, fairies, and evil spirits.  Now Joy and Ink have to keep up their ruse or risk being killed.
