Shadow of the Mark by Leigh Fallon - Blog Tour

We are super excited to be a part of the Shadow of the Mark Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours!  A huge thank you to the ladies of Rockstar Book Tours, Haper Teen and Leigh Fallon for including us in this great tour.  Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of the post for your chance to win awesome prizes!  Here at BiblioJunkies HQ we are busy stuffing ourselves with  pie and celebrating out 2nd birthday, so if you are so inclined, check out our other giveaways currently going on and throughout the rest of the month for other fantastic books!  Without further adieu, I give you my review of Shadow of the Mark, I promise, no spoilers!

Their love could destroy them all.

Through the ages, Marked Ones have harnessed the powers of the four elements: Water, Fire, Earth, and Air. Much about the elements is shrouded in mystery, but one thing is certain: A relationship between two Marked Ones has the potential to cause widespread devastation.  Megan and Adam—Air and Water—are determined to defy the risks.  But the power that swirls inside Megan is growing in twisted ways.   And the closer she is to Adam, the closer Megan comes to unleashing a dark force that could spell destruction for the entire Marked line.

The Bad:
It can be a bit difficult to keep all of the people and groups at play in Shadow straight and the science behind the Marked and mating is a bit confusing.  There were also times I found Megan to be either completely oblivious or willfully ignoring warnings of trouble, which was a touch annoying.  

The Good:
Shadow of the Mark is an interesting story about the continuing struggles of people who can control the elements.  You all know how much I love stories about elemental magic, so I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next.  Where Megan was sometimes annoying, Adam's family is compelling and likable (hot boys!).  I also loved the twists and turns the story took.  It's not many books that can keep me guessing, so I am greatly looking forward to the next installment in the series.

About Leigh:

Leigh Fallon was born in South Africa, raised in Dublin, Ireland and moved to Cork in her 20's. While living in beautiful Kinsale, her novel, The Carrier of the Mark was conceived. She promptly abandoned her 'riveting' career in corporate treasury and discovered Inkpop, a website for budding writers of teen fiction. Within weeks her manuscript hit the coveted top five spot and was reviewed by an editor at HarperCollins. A few emails and some hysterical screaming later, she signed her first deal. Leigh and her family now share their time between Ireland and the US.
