Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

Source: Publisher
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.
I found Carrier of the Mark to be a charming read with a few problems. I wish that the characters had been developed a bit more and that a few parts of the plot was more smooth. The setting of Ireland is gorgeous and mystical. I loved that I was instantly transported there and immersed into the story. Megan moves to a new place. She makes friends and becomes obsessed with Adam DeRís. Their romance seems extremely rushed and strong. I wish that it had been slower. His sister Áine was very funny and I wish she was in the book more. Some of the language and slang was very American and the dialogue could have been better. I had information overload a few times and wish that what Carrier of the Mark and Royal Bloods are, had been explained better or more gradually, instead of all at once. The plot dragged a few times, but overall the mythology had a lot of potential and I found it really fascinating. I am excited to see where Fallon will take it next. This book will definitely appeal to fans of Paranormal Romance and I recommend this book to fans of the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan and the Castor Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
