The Markings by Catherine Downen is out now on Amazon!
After seven years of being spared, Adaline’s luck has run out. But she won’t go quietly or easily. Her life depends on her ability to escape the grasps of the King and find a place of freedom. Discovering her unique powers is the turning point Adaline needs to get a second chance at her freedom. In this thrilling novel of friendship, family, and secrets, Adaline runs for her life and learns the truth of her past along the way.
An exclusive quote from the novel is: “My brain sees him as a threat, as the enemy, a guard at the castle, but my heart feels he is a friend. The question is, which one is right?”
I also got to read the novel before it’s release. I have to say that the character of Adaline is strong and full of courage. This story is about her on a journey as she fights for the truths of her past. I love journey stories and The Marking delivered. The ending left me going OMG! I need the second novel like yesterday.
