‘The Tenets in the Tattoos’ by Becky James is the first in an ambitious YA Fantasy series. With secrets, revelations and plot twists along the way, ‘The Tenets in the Tattoos’ is certainly an action-packed adventure.
The storyline is ambitious in its scope and really is one for fans of fantasy and science fiction, with multiple tropes all utilised to great effect as Thorrn and Evyn’s path unfolds. I liked Thorrn as a character, he’s arrogant enough in the beginning to not be particularly likeable, but not too arrogant that his work to earn forgiveness for his earlier behaviour rings false. Each character is multi-dimensional and have their own skills that are utilised in the more tense parts of the plot.
This is a strong new fantasy title.
