'The ground at my feet crumbles, each piece falling away into nothing. I struggle searching for any kind of traction. There's none. His hand tightens around my throat. Without warning he lets go and I fall into darkness with the sound of his laughter echoing all around me.'
Hanna Harper would give anything for her life to go back to being simple and ordinary, but the truth is, things are only getting more complicated—and absolutely terrifying.
Marked with a new symbol she's brought back from the brink of death to protect her best friend—the boy she fell madly in love with, the Chosen One in an ancient prophecy who's fated to either save or destroy the world when his powers awaken on his 18th birthday. But keeping him hidden and safe isn't easy, even with the help of The Guardians. Especially when one of them is trying to steal her heart and her greatest enemy is trying to undermine her efforts every chance he gets. So when the truth is discovered and Hanna's brother is taken hostage, a decision has to be made.
Does she risk the fate of the world to save her brother by handing her best friend over to The Fallen, or does she risk losing the only family she has left to keep him safe?

About the Author
T.L. McDonald lives in Ohio with her husband, her three wonderful children, and her little miniature pinscher Lola (who thinks she's a big beast.) When she's not spending time with her family or friends, she can often be found staring at the computer screen as she writes new material (okay sometimes she's actually just surfing her newsfeed on Facebook or Twitter), curled up with a good book, or occasionally binge watching an entire series on Netflix. Although T.L. has been writing since her childhood, Marked is her very first published novel and now that she's gotten this far, she has no plans of stopping. Nothing makes her happier than knowing she's put something out into the world for people to enjoy.
