The endgame is here. Trust will be broken. Lives will be cut short.
When Erin Banks was nine years old, her whole life was capsized. Her baby brother was abducted by a mysterious man with burning red eyes, and her family torn apart. Since that day, Erin has sworn to discover what happened to her brother and reap bloody vengeance on his kidnapper.
To ready herself for the fight, she thrust herself into the world that exists alongside our world, the hidden realm of magic and monsters known as the Uncanny Kingdom. It was there that she acquired her Uncanny Ink: tattoos infused with magic that make her stronger, faster, fit to operate in a city overrun with inhuman gangsters and vile demon-spawn.
Now, at long last, Erin has the Red-Eyed Man in her sights. Taking him on won’t be a one-person job, she knows that, but can she overcome her trust issues and accept the help of another despite her lack of faith?
And why is it all coming together now? So many years of nothing, and suddenly, from out of nowhere, her enemy chooses to make himself known? It stinks, but what choice does she have but to follow her nose?
The memory of the Red-Eyed Man is a piece of shrapnel that Erin has had lodged in her brain since the day he took her brother. Will facing him allow her to dig that shard out and heal, or will pulling it free be the death of her?
