Ink is a great book, but I found it very hard to get into, and I had to force myself to read it. It has a lot of characters, and each one has about 3 different names, making it difficult to follow at first. However, after about the 100th page, it got me hooked, and I began to understand who the characters were. The second half of the book was exciting and fast paced. Now I can't wait for the next book in the series!
