Sixteen year-old Kara Nightingale’s ordinary life is suddenly turned upside-down when she dies in a freak accident, and she wakes up in a strange new world with a new career—as a rookie for the Guardian Angel Legion. Kara hurtles towards dangerous missions with the help of her Petty Officer and friend, David.
But when she discovers a Mark on her leg, the entire Legion accuses her of being a Demon spy. Angels are dying, and David begins to pull away from her. Can Kara prove her innocence as she becomes the Legion’s only hope?
It’s going to take a miracle to save the Legion, and Kara’s luck has just run out…
Kara was marked, or so it seems. She is in High School yet when she is hit by a bus, and what people think about afterlife isn’t exactly what happens to her! Kara wakes up in a elevator that leads her to a place where she learns her fate: even before she was born she was already designated to be a Guardian Angel.
She doesn’t know what it entrails exactly, but she needs to learn, and fast. Her teacher of shorts, David, is the one she can relays while discovering her new reality and destiny. But even David doesn’t understand the danger that lurks every corner where Kara turns, seeming to be anticipating her presence in every place.
Now Kara needs to understand her new life and discover why she is targeted by so many demons. Not really an easy task, if you ask me.
Marked is a fast paced book with a good enough narrative and little mistakes and typos. I find some paragraphs a little confusing and some ideas could had been more elaborated, but the book surprises me, catching my attention since the beginning. It is a fact that I want to read more about this series.
