Book Description

Book Description

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 inkpop.com. 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 Shelfari Review:
Instantly drawn to a mysterious, alluring boy in her class, teenaged Megan, an American living in Ireland, discovers that they are linked by a supernatural destiny that gives them power Megan never knew she possessed.


[Thursday, ‎December ‎15, ‎2011] I'm almost half way through the book. But as always I can't wait to write my review before I'm done. I guess I don't want to forget a thing.

When I first began, I thought the story was very cute, but later on, I thought: "Oh boy! Another Twilight fan!" The story might be set in Ireland (where it's cold) but the story line seems similar to Twilight a lot. First, a girl living with her dad alone, than the whole clan thing, than the weird sister (like Alice) than the accident, and her feeling something is off, and than the incident with the boys assault and him saving her. 

The author is following Twilight story line to a fault!! That... I didn't like. 

But unlike Twilight, the use of words and vocabulary is not strong. Beside that the characters seem lame. I like the cover though.
