Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon Review

Name: Carrier of the Mark
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: October 4th, 2011
342 pages

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 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

My Review:
What an awesome read! I really really enjoyed this one! When I picked it up last week from Barnes and Noble I could not put it down!
I really liked how this book was set in Ireland, I actually have never read any books set in Ireland so it was fun to imagine the main character Megan there!

One of my favorite parts of this book was the plot! I really enjoyed learning about the different supernatural elements in this book (I don't want to give anything away!) but it was really interested to see how the supernatural part mixed with the romance part. Ms. Fallon did a really great job of creating her own mythology in this book and I really enjoyed that!
One part that I did not really like was how Megan and Adam got together too quickly! I really wanted their romance to be spread out! Even though that bothered me I still liked seeing the two together and reading about their relationship!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I totally would recommend it to paranormal romance fans!

My Rating: Four out of Five Stars


  1. I bought this book last week, too, and I can't wait to read it. Thanks for the review--it made me more excited to pick this book up. Glad you liked it!

  2. So glad you enjoyed this book. Sucks that I didnt, I know! I was excited to read it and then bam! I was just not digging it. I had to put it down. But hey great review! I might even give it a shot once more! x


  3. I'm glad you liked it! I've been sitting on the fence about whether or not to try this one as I've read some mixed reviews. But I still might give it a try...

    Great review :)

  4. Oh I'm so glad to see a positive review! I've read a few negative ones, but the problem just seemed to be that it was a lot like Twilight... which in itself isnt a bad thing, surely?

    I really want to read this one regardless. And OH MY GOODNESS THE COVER! THE COVER! THE COVER!

  5. This sounds so good! I immediately liked the summary because the main character has my name, even if it doesn't have a H. Haha but really this sounds amazing. You said you didn't want to give away the supernatural aspect so I'm assuming its something pretty unique to the story. Adding to TBR. Thank you for the review! :)
