Ink by Jobie Baldwin is a YA Fantasy novel of a “powerful god, a magical tattoo and a rebellious teenager.”
“A powerful god, a magical tattoo and a rebellious teenager. What could possibly go wrong?
Christian, an unruly English teenager, stumbles onto a mysterious tattoo parlor. Possessed by the Rune God, Hagalaz, he becomes immortal, gifted with magical powers which allow him to harness the forces of nature.
Only problem? Hagalaz God of Disruption, is intent on making Christian’s life a living hell.
Oh, and did I mention the Settlers, a mysterious group with a dark and devastating secret?
It is up to Christian and his new Tribe of four, each gifted with their own celestial passenger, to uncover that secret.
But nothing is what it seems, and it will take much more than the powers of a few long-forgotten gods to stop the impending global disaster that threatens to destroy everyone and everything in its path.”

My hands were glowing blue-white, and sparks were shooting out of my fingers. I moved them away from my sides, which turned out to be a bad idea, because forks of lightning shot out of them hitting the street below.
‘Stop!’ yelled Ben and I turned to look at him. He’d climbed off the ledge and was clinging to a drain pipe attached to the side of the building. The wind whipped at his shirt and almost tore it off his body.
‘I’m trying!’ I shouted back as more lightning flared out of my fingertips and crashed to the street below, tearing up pavement like paper. So far I hadn’t hit anyone, but it was just a matter of time as lightning was firing off left and right.
Hagalaz was really getting into his stride. I had to do something, but what?”
