A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that, unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.

Carrier of the Mark is thrilling, fresh and achingly romantic. It will have you up late at night, devouring the lives of Megan and Adam, leaving you wanting more and more. Jennifer L Armentrout

It's a great read with a fast-moving plot, wonderful characters, and amazing descriptions. Leigh has written a sweepingly beautiful story that will enthrall readers and leave them in awe and wanting more. D.J. Smyter

One of the best paranormal romances I have read in a long time. Fallon manages to provide, not only a new location and country setting, but a different kind of paranormal aspect. Chanelle Gray

Warning: beware of an overuse of adjectives and adverbs. I just loved the book so much! Kris Summers

I found myself crushing on Rian, Adam's hot older brother. Gah, I loved him! The angst, the torture within....mmm.... HOT. Which is funny because... WAIT. I shall say no more—zips my lips.

Leigh Fallon has created a magical story with Carrier of the Mark and that's not just because there is magic involved. It"s because it's just that good. Kelley Vitollo

Excellent tension. Fun humor. Leigh Fallon has the "it" factor—the ability to make life spring from the page. As soon as I finished, I couldn't decide whether to start over or just savor the story ... anything to stay in the world a bit longer. I'm already in line for her next book! Morgan Shamy

I gobbled up Carrier of the Mark in twenty-four hours, and felt warmly satisfied at the outcome. So many first novels leave readers on an extreme cliff-hanger with too many loose ends and no sense of closure. Carrier does not do that to you; however, there are just enough unanswered questions to make you want to read the sequel. Wendy Higgins

I'm kind of a "want to see cool powers, good characters, a lot of butt kicking, and a good story" kind of reader. This book did not disappoint. It gave me a bit of everything I like in a book. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon is a perfect example of why so many adults are reading young adult urban fantasy these days. It's just a good book.
Cheryl's Review

Combine prophecy, amulets, and a secret society and you have the makings of a fine paranormal romance.
School Library Journal

An engaging story
Publishers Weekly

First-time novelist Fallon has blended a unique tale of magic, folklore, friendship, and sweet romance into a tantalizing mystery with a modicum of danger.
