Overview

"Isaac was more than just precious to her, he was precious in ways the world could only fathom. If she failed, she failed everyone." -Marked for Vengeance

Alyx Rayer's existence in Atlanta, the eternally bustling capital of Georgia, is one of routine and blending in among the worker bees. But her 'normal' life is actually a façade for a higher calling; she's a three hundred year old soul, encased in a human vessel and sent from the darkness between heaven and Earth to capture her Marked when summoned by her superiors.

During the initial, routine stake-out of her Marked, a dream prophet named Isaac Walsh, Alyx is thrown for an emotional loop when his allure captivates her heart from two rooftops away. The event marks the very instance when her sense of what's right and what's wrong is brutally challenged as her contact with him is strictly forbidden.

While already trapped between honor and desire, her emotional struggles are further challenged by a man in a black suit who continually pops up when she least expects it, his presence evoking a strange response from the scar she was branded with at birth. The scar tingles like a warning beacon, alerting her that something is amiss. Because her superiors never told her what this would mean, or much of anything except what to do when they summon, she can only conclude to try and keep her sanity, and her life, from completely shattering to pieces.

This engaging first book of the series is a Paranormal Romance novel interlaced with twists, turns, and thrilling suspense that is sure to satisfy readers of any genre.

May not be suitable for YA.

    Slow in the beginning due to character development, but once things picked up I couldn't put it down! The author did a fantastic job keeping me hooked and emotionally invested in the characters. Can't wait to see where it all goes and the fates of Alyx, Isaac, and the rest of mankind.

    Very good read.

    This book is good for late teens. Some language and sexual content, but overall fun to read. This is a first in a series and I can't wait to read the rest.

    One of the best things about this novel is that the characters felt real. It’s nice to finally read a novel where the characters are flawed and make mistakes. The ending was also fast-paced and took me by surprise! Buying book two now!

    BORING

    BORING - I forced myself to keep reading but only made it half way through the book. I kept hoping it would get better. Had no explnation as to what Alyx was or hint to what the man in black was. I expected at least an explanation of what or where Alyx came from so i could grasp what her purpose was and the purpose of this book.
    I'm glad it was free for i wont feel bad about deleting this book. I dont even care to finish the book to find out the answers as to what Alyx is or her mission.
    Do not recommend unless you like a slow pace book with very little explanation. From the other reviews i guess in the end your questions get answered. Sorry, but that is to long of wait with nothing to hold my interest at least some action or drop a few hints but nothing.

    Great read

    The characters are well developed and the story line kept me from putting the book down. It is great to read a paranormal plot that does not revolve around teenagers but instead revolves around mid to late 20 yrs olds, making the conversations, interactions and relationships more believeable and relate-able.
