Carrier of the Mark is a pretty good read and Fallon has great writing skills however --- the characters and the plot are way too similar to other popular novels out there. I hate comparing books, so I won't go into detail other than to say it lacks originality.
The mythology and elements of nature are explain really well. I really enjoyed finding out about the character's individual marks and their powers. I found a minor character to be much more interesting than the main character and I hope that we find our more about, Aileen in the future books.
The next book in this series, isn't expected out until 2013 and that is a very long wait ----
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.
