Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon captured my attention from start to finish. If I had more hours in a day, I would finish it in a day!
The setting and plot is intriguing! I did not know what to expect, but the book “wowed” me from start to finish. I really like the whole idea of implementing the four elements in the stories and how the characters can use the four elements. I find some parts of the novel very funny and some parts kind of reminded me of Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini, however, it has its differences, as both books are intriguing in their own ways.
The characters are very powerful and appealing. I think Carrier of the Mark would not be Carrier of the Mark without these fascinating characters. I like how the DeRis’ and Megan interacted before they knew each other, but the interaction between them after they knew each other is more important. I like the idea of how they help each other to be who they are and how well they work together in the end despite the troubles in the beginning. I think I fell in love with the DeRis’ boys!
Overall, I think my favorite part of the book is where the DeRis’ and Megan use their powers to defend themselves. It is the most powerful part of the novel and it really shows the advances in powers each characters have.
Leigh’s writing is absolutely captivating! I think she did well to draw the attention of her readers and she has worked very hard on this novel to draw us in.
Carrier of the Mark is everything that I wanted to read! From the plot to the setting to the characters, it was everything that I hoped for. This book will not disappoint! Looking forward to the next book!
