Carrier of The Mark by Leigh Fallon
Paperback, 352 pages
Expected publication: October 4th 2011
A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?
A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.
She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.
Okay, look at this cover and tell me it doesn't scream "READ ME!"? I have been in such a big reading slump lately that it has been very hard for me to get into a book and actually finish it. I started maybe six books and did not finish them. Finally, I decided that I would try the book with the amazing cover and see if I can finally snap out of this. Two pages in and I was hooked!
It only took me a day to read it. This book went everywhere with me and whenever I could sneak a page or two, I did! I loved all the characters and the whole world Fallon created. It was very believable and very exciting. I also REALLY liked that Fallon did not waste any time at all bringing Adam into the picture. From their first meeting I was already a fan of Adam. I am a sucker for the dark and mysterious boys.
The only thing I did have a bit of a problem with was that almost every character had a story to be told. Don't get me wrong, it was nice to learn all the why's and who's, but it just felt like it was way too much information being thrown at me all at once, and at times I got a bit confused. I actually had to reread some parts to make sure I was getting everything. In the end though, it all fell into place and made perfect sense. I am so happy that I got the chance to read it.
Carrier of The Mark is just AMAZING. The End.
