Waiting On Wednesday (31) — The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

The Carrier of the Mark

A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

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.

The cover is gorgeous! The Carrier of the Mark is expected to be released on September 13th, 2011 by HarperTeen.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Seen this one around as well. While I like the cover, I don't like how the words become transparent almost against who I assume is Megan. I don't know why…but still sounds very interesting!

    Here's my WoW
