Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE BLACK TATTOO, by Sam Enthoven.

This is a ***SIGNED*** copy of the book.

"A fight to save the world from an evil presence; magical creatures; and three teen protagonists (two boys and girl) . . . : sound familiar? Esme has trained all her life to help her father and the Brotherhood defeat the Scourge, an evil entity that plans to end the world. Charlie gains superpowers as he becomes host to the Scourge, which manifests itself as a shifting black tattoo. Charlie's friend Jack becomes an unwitting, unskilled participant in the battle against the evil. Campy humor enlivens the sometimes cliched events, which move between London and Hell through a portal located in a pub. Esme's martial arts and sword-wielding skills provide plenty of action, and a wide range of intriguing creatures populates the story: floating sharks; blood-sucking, meal-vomiting bats; and giant spiders--sometimes serving as gladiator adversaries in Hell. Adventure and invention abound."
- Booklist (US) review:

"I purchased this for my son as a Christmas present. He literally wore out his paperback copy of the book from reading it so many times and from loaning it to his friends. He was absolutely thrilled to receive the Hardcover book and even happier when he realized that the cover was also a poster. I am very happy."
