This one is as subtle as a two-by-four to the face and as deep as a puddle.
The insta-lust is completely out of control and doesn't seem healthy. It also develops into insta-love in the blink of an eye.
It's hot though and so is the smut. But the latter gets somewhat repetitive rather quickly.
But none of it is terribly original. Or rather, apart from the setting, it's entirely unoriginal.
Everything is dominated by the heart-bleeding and frankly terribly cheesy romance.
The pacing is fast and I never got bored.
The rough outline of the world is intriguing and the plot seems interesting from afar.
But don't look for intricate or even logical and consistent world-building or plot. It's fine on the surface but most of it falls apart quite quickly as soon as you take a closer look.

It's the typical fast food PNR/urban fantasy.

The start is a solid 4 stars, the middle is more like 3 stars, and the end isn't worth more than 2.
So I'll rate it an average of 3 stars. Do with that what you will. ( )

In a dystopian future, Cacy is a member of the Ferry family, whose responsibility it is to escort newly deceased souls to the afterlife. The Kers are the ones who actually mark people for death.. Being a paramedic fulfills a need Cacy has to be useful, along with her brother Declan, which is where she meets newly transferred fellow paramedic Eli, who we get to know gradually, but who, like Cacy, has a very compelling backstory.

I really liked this book and found the characters likeable and the premise unique. The secondary characters were well fleshed out and added a lot to the story. Admittedly, for the first half of the book I wondered where exactly the story was going, but at the halfway point there was a big twist that drew me right in and sped the pacing up. The ending took me totally by surprise and set the story up nicely for the next book in the series, which I will definitely be reading!

5/5 stars. ( )

A good book, but not a great book. I kept calling it my airplane ride, sci fi, trashy type book. I got it free from Amazon last month and I was glad I got it, but wouldn't have picked it up for a cost. I felt the love interest was super rushed as in page 1 or 2, otherwise good story and quick read. ( )

Marked had an interesting premise. Cacy and her family have some supernatural power and the job to ferry the recently deceased to the afterlife they deserve. Since they collect Charon's coin (from the Greek mythology) for each person, they have become unnaturally rich doing so. It also aids Cacy in her role as a paramedic, because she can also see when a person is marked for death and will die for sure so it allows her to prioritize her patients well. Eli and his brilliant sister Galena enter the scene as they move to Boston and Eli soon finds himself more than just the work partner of Cacy as he is rapidly pulled into warring supernatural families.

While it didn't always made a hell lot of sense, I quite enjoyed this part of the story. It was exciting enough to keep me going and considering I have copies of the entire series, it was for the best. Unfortunately was added to that a romance. *sigh* It was love on first sight, obviously because they are both so good looking. Personally, I couldn't care less about them. Hope this is not how the story continues, I would much rather see some more ferrying.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )
