I was excited for this book but it did not reach my expectation. I've read many books in which the main characters are a group of friends but this one I figured would be different. However this book had a strange mix of Greek Mythology and Faerie folklore. I consider myself close to an expert on the first subject so this concoction tended to bother me. However I am aware of people who have absolutely loved this book so I'm not sure. It depends on the reader.

I've always enjoyed Jennifer's books and this one was no exception. I loved the supernatural elements like superpowers and that weird demon looking thing. How cool is that (superpowers, I mean)? I would love to get Delia's power: changing things to anything I want. :D No need for money then! Haha, anyway, the whole plot is very, very unique: tattoos that grant you powers based on the design? Original and unique. Oh, and the Three Fates. I thought that part was cool too. It seemed like there were Greek Mythology mixed in with the plot and I absolutely adore mythology so kudos! The names for the Fates also sound soo exotic (can't remember them but they were cool-sounding :) The only sad part (that I remember!) was when the girls were too late in saving this boy from having his soul devoured from the jealous Fate. But anway, they still managed to save the day! I recommend this book to everyone as long as you enjoy supernatural, mythology, and adventure. :D

Best friends Bailey, Annabelle, Delia, and Zo, are about to go through a life changing experience. While mall shopping for a school dance that is coming up, they stumble upon a mysterious store and they each buy something there-Annabelle, a barette, Delia, a choker, Zo a crystal necklace, and Bailey, four tattoos, guaranteed to last for three days. Each friend puts on a tattoo and develop powers. At first it was really fun (Delia keeps using her powers to change ordinary things into designer clothes), then Bailey starts getting scary dreams and visions of evil that is coming for them. They are the only ones that know about this evil and the only people who can fight it. But the catch is, they only have three days.
This book was okay. I think the events went by too fast and I think Barnes could have developed them better. If you're thinking about buying this book, I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a huge Barnes fan. Just borrow it from a friend or your local library.

This book is pretty easy to sum up. Four friends get temporary tattoos that give them supernatural powers. And then chaos ensues.

However, despite the far fetched premise you do get a few good laughs in the story and the characters are fairly likeable.

Barnes' writing isn't bad either however the book would have been more enjoyable if it had been developed better and explained more.

All in all, if you're a Jennifer Lynn Barnes fan you should pick this up, if not....

Save it for later.

This book was pointless. All other science fiction books are crying. I am crying for the writer of this book. I am crying for anyone who has read this book. I mean everything about this book screams b-rate. This wasn't even a book but some attempt at one

The lives of Bailey and her three best friendssmart Annabelle, fashionista Delia, and tomboy Zocross paths with an ancient evil through the form of blue-green tattoos, guaranteed to last three days. With these tattoos, the girls mysteriously receive various magical powers. Bailey can set things on fire, Delia transforms one object into another, Annabelle gets mind control, and Zo can see the future.

At first these new powers are fun, but they soon realize that theyve been given these powers not to enjoy themselves, but to battle an ancient evil that will kill innocent people in order to gain power. The challenge seems insurmountable, but with their strong friendship and belief in one another, the four girls have more power than they ever imagined.

The young author Jennifer Lynn Barnes does a fantastic job of telling an exciting yet relatable story. The writing is easy, the characters well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this marvelously unique book.
