Review: Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

RATING: ✮✮✮✮✮

Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction

Buy the Book:



After the loss of her mother and several cities later, Megan's dad secures a job in Ireland. Getting used to a new school is one thing, but getting used to a new country is a whole other ball game for Megan. 

To her surprise, the cutest boy in school, Adam DeRís, has clearly noticed Megan from day one, but he avoids her at all cost. Things get a little weird when Megan's friends warn her to steer clear from Adam and his "cursed" family. But will Megan listen to their advice and ignore the strong attraction she feels for him?

Alone and on her way to a party one night, Megan is aggressively bullied by two of her classmates. Her fear releases something within her of which she was not aware. Now Megan must make a decision that concerns her life and the boy she's fallen in love with - Adam. 

In this wonderful tale, Leigh Fallon has managed to capture the vivid images of beautiful Ireland and its culture. The characters and world that the author has created in this story are realistic and unique and leave the reader pleasantly filled with the magic of her words. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon is an elemental read, by all definitions of the word "elemental".

I started out life in South Africa. A year later
my parents moved home to Dublin, Ireland. When I was older and realized my
parents had moved me from exotic Durban, to sedate Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, I
was rightly ticked off.

Giving up lions for sheep, I grew up in the foothills of
the Dublin Mountains where I went to a convent school and had to contend with
uniforms, gabardines, and nuns. When not dodging the beady glare of  the Sisters
of Mercy, I was devouring every book I could get my hands on.

I traveled all over Europe while working in banking and
treasury, but I gave up my calculator in favor of a keyboard and haven?t
stopped writing since. My first book, Carrier of the Mark, was published by
HarperTeen in 2011.

Our home is in Cork in the south of Ireland, but we're currently on loan
to Massachusetts in the US where I continue to write books about  magic, ghosts,
and romance, with a bit of Irish flavor.

Coming in 2013 
from HarperTeen
