Carrier of the Mark: Book Review

by Leigh Fallon

From the moment she sets foot at her new school in Ireland, Megan is inexplicably drawn to the darkly handsome Adam DeRis. But Megan soon discovers that her feelings for Adam are tied to a supernatural fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that unites them could be their ultimate destruction.

This electrifying debut novel was first discovered on inkpop.com. the online community for aspiring writers. THE CARRIER OF THE MARK sizzles with unbridled romance, a unique supernatural hook, and a breathtaking Irish setting, and will entice fans of the Need series by Carrie Jones and the House of Night series by P. C. and Kristin Cast.
This was a quick escapist read.  There wasn't really much depth to this story.  But even so it was a good read.  Perhaps, further books will add more layers and excitement.  I did really like the big show down at the end of the book.  The bad guy scenario was highly believable to me.  I am sure these sorts of methods have been used out in the world today.  Sometimes, I just get tired of the bad guys in reality getting away with everything.  They just have their lies and fake promises.  It was nice to think that sometimes in rare cases, supernatural ones that is, a woman can protect herself and those she loves.
