With no family and very few friends, Lucky’s psychic ability has always made her an outcast. The only person she can rely on is Kayla, the ghost girl who has been with her since she was born.
But Kayla is not all that she appears.
And when Lucky is visited by a demonic assassin with a message for her friend, she finds herself dragged into the Underlands – and the political fight for the daemon king’s throne.
Lucky, trapped in the daemon world, is determined to find her way home… until she finds herself caught between the charms of the Guardian Jamie, the charismatic Daemon of Death Jinx – and the lure of finding out who she really is.
Marked is about a girl, Lucky, who is able to see ghosts, one of them is her best friend, Kayla, who has been with as long as she can remember, well she thinks she’s a ghost or a spirit.
With no family and very few friends, Lucky’s psychic ability has always made her an outcast in the human world.
When Lucky is visited by a demonic assassin with a message for her friend, Kayla, Lucky finds out that Kayla is not quite what she has always believed. She finds herself and her entourage being dragged into the Underlands and begin a rocky adventure set both in our world and another, where she embarks on a journey of self-discovery about her own heritage and abilities and is caught in the middle of a political fight for a daemon king’s throne.
Lucky has caught the attention of Guardian Angel Jamie as well as Jinx, the Daemon of Death, and it’s very easy to see why they both hold such appeal to her. Jamie and Jinx are total opposites and it’s impossible to decide if I prefer the dark & brooding bad boy or the enigmatic angel….decisions… decisions… decisions …
This is the kind of story that sucks readers in very quickly and you end up completely losing track of time while you’re reading. I enjoyed the British setting and feel to the beginning of the story but I also loved getting to visit the parallel world of the Underlands. Imagine heaven and hell aren’t two places but instead one place combined, a place where demons of all manner roam alongside guardian angels.
The romantic pieces of this story were both sweet and sexy, as well as unexpected, and I cannot wait to see where it goes from here. I will definitely be picking up the next book in this series.
