This series rivals Harry Potter but for a maturer audience.

Book 1: Rae of Hope
My suggestion is to read the prequel series before reading or listening to this series, it will make a whole lot more sense.
The daughter of two tutu parents , Rae Kerrigan is attending a new school, but it by the school's invitation. Rae, however, knows nothing about the school, her parents association with it, prior to the deaths, 10 years prior. In fact she knows nothing about tatus, the ink that appears on those who turn 16 from the inked lineage families.
Rae is in for shocking term!
Book 2: Dark Nebula
Rea's 2nd year at school in England, with a new headmaster (her secret boyfriend's father). There are a couple of new students, and still a lot of undercurrent due to Rea's father's recording.
This is a high octane story, with lots of banter between students and the sinister feeling that all is never as it appears. It appears that Simon Kerrigan is still affecting the world, long after he apparently left the mortal realm.
Book 3: House of Cards
I am throughly enjoying this series.
I do find that for clever people the characters seem to forget or overlook a lot of information.
plus, a sibling turns up within Guilder, and no one knows his ability!!
Book 4: Royal Tea:
For a society created by the king in Tudor time, the Royals seem to have v forgotten their ties and why the society was formed.
This is a dramatic episode, with the Royal family being caught in the crossfire of those with ink against those that have been put in place to prevent tutus from taking the thrown.
Book 5: Under Fire
I listened to the audio rendition of this book.
With the idea that her mother could not be harmed by fire, Rea is hell bent on finding her.
Unfortunately, Luke is caught in the crossfire, but the information he still holds helps.
A very dramatic episode, one where we find a whole lot more about those around Rae and their motivations.
Book 6: End in Sight
Again we are faced with how to deal with a traitor, but Rae's solution does not sit well with all her companions.
Information lost is found and the final piece of the puzzle is solved. However, first is the examinations for final graduation and the ceremony itself.
A more sedate episode but progress is being made to find the master mind.
