Book Review


First of all, such a cool cover and the story is pretty damn cool too!

A Mark Unwilling: The Reckoning (Book #1) Release Date: May 1st, 2018

Lexa Blue thought she had her life figured out. She’d go to college, maybe get a job, and wait until the Demon whose Mark she bears comes to collect her soul. No real concrete plans since it wouldn’t matter in the end. What she did not expect was the end of the world.

Conquest. War. Pestilence. Death.

Even with her trusted Warlock friend, David, Lexa is clueless about how to stop the apocalypse—but she’ll still try; because of her Mark, she can’t die. Who better to fight the Horsemen?

It’s not that simple. With a prophetic girl as a new sidekick, a group of Vampires who’re suspect, and an FBI Agent who somehow knows her connection to the biblical figures, Lexa’s life is going to get a heck of a lot worse before it gets better.

When her Demon finally comes to claim her, will she be ready?

…Probably not.

My Thoughts…

Thank you Candace for sending me an ARC in exchange for my honest review! It was such a fun read and I can’t wait for the next installment in the series!

Guys, It’s been eons since I’ve read an urban fantasy, especially one this good! There is A LOT going on in this first installment but it works. You’ve got the Four Horsemen, angels and demons, vampires, warlocks, AND Hades. Yes as in Hades from Greek mythology. It seems like a lot for one book but somehow it all fits together.

The story starts with ‘Lexa’, a twenty year old college student whose parents literally sold her soul before she was born for wealth and privilege. She’s always known her days are numbered and that the demon who “owns” her would come to collect. What she didn’t know was WHO owned her.

The action starts almost immediately and it’s a pretty wild ride. The writing is quick, witty, and the story has a rapid-fire pace which fits the setting and adds to the excitement. I really liked the characters, particularly ‘Lexa’ and the demon who “owns” her! I love their dynamic and I look forward to seeing how it develops.

This is a fun intro to what I’m sure will be a fantastic series. Tons of action, horror, sexual tension, and even humor! If this is your sort of thing, then be sure to buy your copy May 1st!
