Synopsis: ‘Every action, every deed, every significant moment is tattooed on your skin for ever. When Leora's father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as a record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete, she wonders whether she ever knew him at all.’
What an idea for a new world, where everything you achieve both good and bad is etched on your skin. When you die, your skin becomes your story and is weighed up with good against evil. If you have led the majority of a good life, then your family receives your story to keep forever and will remember you forever. But is this just another way to control people, to make them behave in a way suitable for those in charge?
In dystopian worlds control is everything for the leaders and this is a different way, a different religion to use as a control measure.
An exciting read and the first in the series. Not to mention the cover is brilliant.
