Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

Carrier of the Mark
Good Reads Summary

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.

My Thoughts

Beautiful Cover strikes again. Dang it! What I got out of CARRIER was a story of what Bella and Edward would have done, had they not been vampire and emo-girl but rather some other type of supernatural boy and emo girl/Avatar-to- be.  Things went quickly though, that I have to give it.  Except this fact might have more to do with my feelings of having been there and read that rather than me feeling things like “Oh boy! What a good story!” Not just that it was in turns abrupt and over the top, but that not one of the main characters had much going for them.

Abrupt and Over the Top. They meet. He stalks. She swoons. She loves him. He loves her. Desperately. Passionately. Completely… after knowing each other for a very brief period. What’s worse was her serious consideration of giving everything up for him. What she could be, what she could do… all her power for a very controlling guy. *shakes head* Theirs was relationship that I did not buy. And truth be told, theirs was one that upset me (those be my mild words now,) because where he blew cold then hot then cold again, she just went with it. While Twilight’s seen better days being much smirked at as it is today, at least it had something relatively new when it came out, which is completely not the case here. As said its Edward and Bella all over again. Only similarities do not end there, most every aspect of the other has been mirrored in CARRIER. Her father, his family, their relationship and even the idea of a baby-monster thing were all touched.

Good News: It's a very quick read.
Bad News: Well, I've read stories like this before. (Edward, is that you?)

Good News: It's got a really pretty cover
Bad News: And that's about it.

Good News: It's a 2 1.5!
 Bad News: I couldn’t make myself click the 1 star

Good News: I didn't spend a dime on this copy
Bad News: Urgh, others be better off borrowing a copy to see for themselves
