About Melissa Wright

Melissa is the author of more than a dozen YA and fantasy novels including The Frey Saga and Between Ink and Shadows. When not writing she can generally be found talking with an author friend about a book, painting something from a book, or tucked between headphones listening to a book. It’s kind of a theme. She loves reasonable heroines in unreasonable situations, noble--if brooding--heroes, slow burn and sweet kisses, a lot of havoc, and a little magic.

Reviews of Between Ink and Shadows by Melissa Wright

A Lee reviewed on May 16, 2021

This put a different twist on the captured-thief trope which I quite enjoyed. The interaction of light and dark, good and evil, redemption and debauchery turn what could have been just another gaslamp gothic into a suspenseful quest for freedom and nobility, step by hesitant step, decision by uncertain decision. The author's writing style, deft character development and intricately intriguing story line compares beautifully with Martha Wells' "Death of a Necromancer". I recommend this to fans of Martha Wells' Ile-Rien Chronicles.
