[Book Review] Carrier Of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

Carrier of the Mark (Carrier, #1)Carrier Of the Mark
Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

What the f did I just read??

First of all - let me just say that I'm sure a lot of you saw all of the negative reviews on Goodreads about this book and I'm with them. Therefore this will be just a short rant about the book that had potential but was very poorly executed...

...AS IN:

1. I hated all of the characters. 

2. Elements topic wasn't the main focus as it should have been. 

3. It's all about OMG-He's-Hot-&-I-Can't-Live-Without-Him.

The whole situation just felt fake - conversations, "magic tricks", talking through the earth and fire. And when Megan finds out that she is a part of the element, she only thinks about Adam and not about how her life just turned around. It just felt staged and empty. 

Then there's Adam and he is a little creepy, not going to lie. He's completely obsessed with Megan and all scenes with him eating her face and declaring his love for her on the second day they meet is just annoying. And Megan falls for that and might even blame it on her powers. But she doesn't care! 


She doesn't care so much that she would rather not have any powers and be with him even if it means that the world would end and they would have monster babies that would end the world. *gag*
