Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

imageTheir love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRĂ­s.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

This book was amazing. I read it in the midst of a reading slump, and for the three and a half hours it took me to read it, a reading slump didn’t exist. Carrier of the Mark captured me completely.

Leigh Fallon is a fantastic writer. Her characters were all so interesting! I felt like jumping into the book just so I could meet them. I honestly have nothing but praise for Fallon. There were so many twists and turns throughout this novel, and the setting of Ireland was just magical. I love books set in foreign places, especially if they’re set in Ireland/Scotland/Britain/etc.

I know this review is jumbled up, but that’s because even a month after reading Carrier of the Mark, I’m still in awe of it. With all of the dreamy and breathless parts, there were also parts in Carrier of the Mark where I was freaked out! This book is surprisingly dark and mysterious. I kept guessing on what was going to happen next!

I really recommend Carrier of the Mark. It is so addicting! It’s good if you like paranormal-type books that have a little spice to them.
