Marked is another book borrowed from my daughter and her friends who are right now into vampyre books, so I guess I am too. I must admit though, that so far, I have been enjoying all the books they’ve let me borrow. This is another easy read, partly because it is short, just a little over 300 pages and mostly because you get hooked from the beginning and can’t put it down. Again, this book was devoured in one sitting.
This book is written by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, a mother-daughter team of authors. How great is that?
The formula for the story reminds me a little of the Harry Potter series. In Marked, vampires exist among humans and it is generally known and accepted. Once in a while, a human becomes ‘marked’, they are located by the tracker who then marks their forehead with a crest or a half moon. This means they have been marked to become a vampire and they must go to vampire school in order to be trained. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? No matter though, it is still an interesting premise and it is still full of all the teenage issues like cliques and insecurities only a bit of magic and vampyrism is thrown in the mix.
I won’t summarize the story for you here (I never do), there is plenty of them out there including at Amazon if you’d like a synopsis. Amazon! They are a vampire tribe too. hehe!! You’ll have to read the book to see what I’m talking about.
