The Carrier of the Mark
Publication date: 4th October 2011
My rating: 3 out of 5
I thought The Carrier of the Mark was okish, it was very readable, and kept my attention but just didn't really wow me. I'm not sure if I have just over loaded on those kind of "we are fated to be together" type love stories in recent months, but I found their instant love a bit rushed, and lacking in swoon worthy chemistry. I didn't really fall in love with Adam or Megan as characters, I usually drool over the male lead and cheer for the female lead but I didn't feel strongly about either of them really.
On the positive side I did enjoy the Irish setting which was pleasantly different, I also enjoyed the mythology and interesting superpowers the DeRis family have, I thought there was loads of potential there for the other members of the family to get their own books. Would I go out an buy them? Hmmmm that would be a maybe, I want more romance and chemistry in the next book.
