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.
A good debut from Fallon, Carrier of the Mark presents an interesting situation. I really enjoyed the idea that she brought and how she approached it.
The biggest draw for me was this magnetism between Adam and Megan. Even if Adam wanted to stay away from her, their romance just couldn’t be denied or downtrodden. Luckily for readers, Fallon doesn’t spend forever making the reader watch Adam blow hot and cold as he wrestled with his feelings.
The set of characters were fun to read as well. Rian was a great character, if only because he was so opposed to their relationship, but eventually opened up a bit to Megan.
An issue I had though was that about halfway into the story, after they end up together, the story slows down. All of a sudden Megan is rapidly developing her powers, not much is happening outside of training, and Megan and Adam are being disgustingly sweet together. Then at the very end we’re hit with this whopper of an action packed ending. However, from the middle on, the strength of Megan’s power and development doesn’t jive well with me. It could be I’m picky and just want the struggle of learning and of utilizing her power. But either way, there are parts of this story that didn’t sit well for me.
That isn’t to say YA paranormal romance fans shouldn’t read this. It’s a good quick read, and worth it if you’re looking for a Twilight-esque romance.
