Ink by Glenn Benest and Dale Pitman

His studio has become his refuge and his prison—a place of boundless imagination and isolation. Brian Archer, creator of a series of successful graphic novels about a vengeful supernatural being called “The Highwayman,” has become a recluse after the adoration of a female fan turned to rage and violence. 

But all that changes when he meets a renowned and beautiful illustrator, A.J. Hart, who carries emotional scars of her own. Their work together is fueled by the unrequited passion they share and a mysterious bottle of black ink that arrives one day at Brian’s doorstep. 

The impossibly dark liquid has mystical properties, making their characters appear so real they eventually come to life, reigning terror on those who mean them harm and if not stopped—threatens to unleash an apocalypse on all mankind. Brian must break free of his self-imposed exile and solve the mystery that allowed these terrible creatures into the world.
Review: Oh my goodness this book was unlike anything I've ever read before! Brian is a unique character, a loner who writes horror graphic novels, when unbeknownst to him, his designs start to come to life. This book combines the romance story of Brian and AJ with a complex paranormal twist. There are elements of fear, violence and distress. It's an exciting, fast paced read and it's simply amazing!
