Release date: January 17th 2014 
Paige Langley’s life has always revolved around good grades and escaping her less than ideal home life…but once she meets Devon Connors, her life drastically changes.
Although, they share an instant attraction, Devon’s concealing a dark past. And an even darker secret…there’s a dead girl haunting him nightly.
Resolute to win the school’s writing contest, Paige will do just about anything to achieve her goals. So after she finds a binder containing information on a past murder and the illegal activities of the students, she believes the stories are fictional and the perfect way to win the contest.
But the owner of the manuscript, Devon Connors, has other plans. To keep Paige from exposing his secrets, Devon befriends her and even offers to help her write a winning story for the contest.
The chemistry between Paige and Devon is undeniable, but Paige doesn’t know if she can trust him. The deeper she digs into the dark underbelly of their high school, the more she realizes that some secrets are better left buried.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
The Death of Ink is good as far as it goes. It’s one of those books that just stops and very little is resolved when it ends. I t didn’t even make it to the end of the school year.
Paige Langley is the main character. Even though she’s a 15 year old in the senior class in her new high school, she’s the most normal person in the book. She becomes friends with Devon who I still didn’t quite have figured out by the end of the book. He has headaches and hallucinations but there’s only a partial explanation.
M.M John’s writing is easy to follow most of the time. There were times, though, that I’d start a chapter and wouldn’t know who was talking or who it was about for the first few paragraphs.
The Death of Ink was okay. I think it may be better a part of a series rather than reading it as a stand alone book.
Purchase on Amazon.
College student by day, clandestine writer by night, M. M. John lives in a Florida town full of ghosts, mysteries and secrets. The Death of Ink is her first novel.
