The Mark by Marilyn Bunderson

She’s had it forever. A tiny mark on her hand. No big deal, right? But when Tori discovers that her ordinary freckle is really some kind of microscopic tattoo, she doesn’t know what to think, especially after meeting Eric, a guy she feels strangely connected to–and not just because he has a mark too.

All too soon, Tori and Eric realize that their marks are only the first clue to a mystery that will change everything. And with each new discovery, Tori finds herself pulled deeper and deeper into a world she could never have imagined.

I really enjoyed reading The Mark. It’s a little slower paced than some of the books I’ve read recently. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. This gave plenty of time for both the story and characters to be well developed. The mystery of the marks and the children who bore them unfolded piece by piece until everything came together for a very satisfying ending. As Marilyn Bunderson’s first novel The Mark is a squeaky clean and a great addition to the science fiction/fantasy/romance genre.

The ending left plenty of room for a sequel but I felt like it wrapped up well enough to be satisfying as a stand alone read.

Content: This is a clean read – no sex, no language, no graphic violence, no innuendo.

Rating 4 Stars – If there is a sequel I’ll read it.
