Very original love story
on 22 May 2011
I love a bit of romance and forbidden love just like every gal out there. Marked was just that, and much more. It was a hot, thrilling read, allowing us a glimpse into our innermost, animalistic desires, hopes and dreams, where a strong man claims his mate, and knights still exist to protect the ones they love.
In a world where people fear all that is unknown, and females are not permitted to speak without invitation in the presence of men, Ova is a strong heroine, who bows to the men's wishes but has her own head. After giving birth to King Xor's heirs she dies in childbirth, but her legacy lives on in her little daughter, Ova, and her son, Xan.
In another world, Catherine is new on the job, waiting to meet her employer only to feel something she's never felt before. Her boss, Xan, is a strong leader and an even stronger warrior. Recognising a bond between them, he's not afraid to fight for what he wants, but as much as Catherine's attracted to him, she can also sense the danger that surrounds him.
In a world of evil magic and deadly enemies, Xan knows he cannot protect Catherine forever from every evil to hunt her, unless he can win her heart and gain her trust.
Marked was a romance full of extremely inventive fantasy elements, suspense and sizzling attraction that made me blush a few times. I was astounded by so much originality and the chemistry between Xan and Catherine. The writing was beautiful, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat as I rooted for Xan and the bond between him and Catherine. It was a unique story, certainly nothing I've ever read before, and I've read my fair share of urban fantasy.
If you're into urban fantasy with lots of action and strong, sexy characters, get this. You won't be disappointed. I wish I could give it more than five stars. I'll be checking out more books by this author!
