In a broken landscape carved by environmental collapse, Boston paramedic Cacia Ferry risks life and limb on the front lines of a fragile and dangerous city. What most don’t know—including her sexy new partner, Eli Margolis—is that while Cacy works to save lives, she has another job ferrying the dead to the Afterlife. Once humans are “Marked” by Fate, the powerful Ferrys are called to escort the vulnerable souls to either eternal bliss or unending fire and pain.

Unaware of Cacy’s other life, Eli finds himself as mesmerized by his fierce and beautiful partner as he is mistrustful of the influential Ferry clan led by the Charon—who happens to be Cacy’s father. Cacy, in turn, can no longer deny her intense attraction to the mysterious ex-Ranger with a haunted past. But just as their relationship heats up, an apparent hit takes the Charon before his time. Shaken to the core, Cacy pursues the rogue element who has seized the reins of Fate, only to discover that Eli has a devastating secret of his own. Not knowing whom to trust, what will Cacy have to sacrifice to protect Eli—and to make sure humanity’s future is secure?

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Sarah Fine + Adult novel = Hell yes.

I have so much love for Sarah Fine. Not only is she one of the sweetest people on the planet – she is an amazing author. Her ability to create such fun and fascinating worlds, not to mention how well she writes her characters, leaves me in awe every time. I just cannot get enough of her books.

Quite honestly, I don’t think I have anything negative to say about this book. There is something for everyone! Romance, action, drama, and a mystery too. The world is fascinating. It has a mythology base – and I loved how complex it was without that overwhelming, drowning feeling. As with her Guardians of the Shadowlands series, we will learn more about more about the world as the series continues – and I am okay with that. This world is a scary place, which is what I expect from Sarah!

I loved the dual POV. This was the first book by Sarah’s that I have read with this style and I thought she did a remarkable job. Both Cacy and Eli are very similar in their characteristics. Both are loving, loyal, fierce and bad ass. Their attraction to each other is instant and I loved the sexual tension and build up to their relationship. And, hello. Sarah can write some seriously steamy scenes.

Overall – I loved it. I can go on and on about Marked. As with her other novels, this book will be on my PUSH list indefinitely.
