I just finished Shadow of the Mark (Carrier #2) by Leigh Fallon for an Around the World ARC Tour.
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.
I read the first book 2 years ago, so I had a bit of a hard time remembering what was going on. I kind of got myself caught up, but not completely.
I liked the DeRises. I liked Megan and Adam together and it was interesting to read about how their elements reacted to each other.
But there were lots of things that left me confused. I didn't really get the whole Knox versus the Order thing. And the end confused me with the fifth element thing. It mostly just went over my head.
It kept my attention well enough but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was better able to understand what was going on.
I gave this book a rating of 3/5.
