4.0 out of 5 stars A great Novella (can be read alone)
The story is really a prequel to Two Halves, telling the story of Xander. I haven't read Two Halves, but won this book in a giveaway and happily read it whilst at the hairdressers. It's quick to read, but opened me up to a world of characters I want to learn more about.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Novella (can be read alone), 2 July 2012
This review is from: Marked: A Two Halves Novella (Kindle Edition)
The story is really a prequel to Two Halves, telling the story of Xander. I haven't read Two Halves, but won this book in a giveaway and happily read it whilst at the hairdressers. It's quick to read, but opened me up to a world of characters I want to learn more about.

In short, it's good vs evil - with Xander and his twin sister, Mira, (who are shape shifters) stuck in the middle, waiting to find out their fate. They will be marked with either the sphere of underworld or the watermark of the good keepers, and the story follows their thoughts and wants. Xander is tempted by the underworld, to be with a witch he has fallen for whilst his twin is in love with Eric, who bears the watermark. In an interesting twist, they must both decide the same mark.

The author does a great job in the descriptions, and you can let your imagination take you away whilst getting involved with the decision that must be made.

Looking forward to reading Two Halves.

This review is from: Marked: A Two Halves Novella (Kindle Edition)
In a world populated by demons, vampires, shape shifters and humans, a war is brewing. The demons plan to annihilate the vampires before moving on to humans and are recruiting some powerful allies. Twin shape shifters Xander and Mira are about to receive their "Marks" that will designate them either as good (water mark) or evil (sphere mark). Whilst Mira wants the water mark, Xander questions what he really wants. When he meets dark witch Xela, he begins to consider choosing the side of evil, but his own choice will not only decide Mira's fate as well, but also the outcome of the battle between good and evil.

I liked the world MS built, and I liked the variety of paranormal creatures and the powers they wield. Unfortunately Mira is somewhat cast aside when Xela makes an appearance, and Xander is quickly swayed by fantastic sex to potentially (and selfishly) make a choice that will also affect his sister for the rest of her life. There is an odd conflict of ideas; it is stressed throughout that your mark is a matter of choice, yet suddenly Mira and Xander are fated to have a particular mark. Xela betrays Xander, but it is deemed acceptable due her sphere mark designating her a creature of evil, and is quickly forgiven and forgotten. The plot is fairly well paced, but becomes jumbled during the finale. I'm not quite sure what happened towards the end and after re-reading it I was still left confused by a couple of comments that were made. A very generous 3 stars.
