Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Ink is a work of fiction in the gritty drama, horror, and psychological sub-genres, and was penned under the author name Antigone. Written for adults due to some extremely impactful scenes, as well as the presence of graphic violence and scenes of a sexual nature, the work takes us down a dark path with our worst fears and biggest questions confronted. We follow Animal and Little Girl through intense suffering which tests their endurance and fortitude, and also shows us how incredible the human mind is at creating ways for people to survive such atrocities. What results is a high concept journey through untold horrors, but one which inspires deep consideration and marvel at the human spirit at its close.

Antigone elicits some powerful emotions during the penning of this tale, and it won’t be a story that all readers can stomach easily. The narrative style is a unique development and a standout of the piece from a technical viewpoint, delivering a level of detail and concept which puts horror on a literary platform, and is to be commended. I found the psychological journey a little difficult in places, but very interesting to follow, and the story plunges to darker and darker depths as it progresses around bends that you really don’t see coming. For those who admire true horror that pokes at our very worst fears, I would certainly recommend The Ink as an accomplished and different story to chill you to the bone.
