The story really drew me in and I can't wait to read the second book.
Wanda Figueroa
As you get into the story, you see how relatable the characters are and truly start to feel for them; at one point I was justifying their actions- to myself!

I started reading this book before I went to bed last night and wound up staying awake until 3:00 a.m. to finish it.

I read this book last week and soething about it just didn't catch me. I made it through the whole book. The writing was descent and the story was different, but somehow for me something was missing. I felt like I didn't connect.

The Guardian's Mark was a book recommended to me by a close friend, and though I am not a science-fiction lover per se, I could not put this book down. From the very beginning you are drawn into the world of Zerah and the Guardians, knowing that it is fantasy but feeling that somewhere at some point in time this world existed/is existing. As you get into the story, you see how relatable the characters are and truly start to feel for them; at one point I was justifying their actions- to myself! You really do feel Kieran's conflict and his intensity is felt throughout the book.
As much as I love that there is more to this story (it is the first book of a series), I really cannot wait until the second installment. I have high expectations for the second book, but until then, I will just have to re-read this book. It seems like the kind of book that will reveal more of itself the more (times) you read it, so I will start right away!

P.S. Do not pass this book over just because it is not your preferred genre- if I would have done that, I would have missed out on a very good read. Expand your horizons- you will not be disappointed.

I started reading this book before I went to bed last night and wound up staying awake until 3:00 a.m. to finish it. The setting and magic system are unnusual and you quicky grow to care about the characters, in particular Amaya, Kieran, and Phoenix. It's mostly the story of how one character (Kieran) struggles with the idea of sacrificing personal happiness to fulfill his duty. As he trains at the Temple and begins forming bonds with the other Guardians, it becomes obvious he is different from the rest. The others seem mostly content to give up everything to follow the will of the powerful Beings. But Kieran rebels and in the end his rebellion may cost his friends and his world everything. I won't spoil it by revealing the ending, except to say it's a cliff-hanger and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
