My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Seventh Mark Part 1 is a YA paranormal fantasy set on the west coast of Canada in the town of Port Coquitlam. Rouge Riding has recently moved here with her foster parents and at 17 she’s about to enter her final year of High School. Whilst out jogging at dusk she meets a super hot mysterious guy in a cemetery and can’t stop thinking about him.
The next day Rouge heads to school to pick up her timetable and get her bearings, she bumps into Grace who instantly takes her under her wing befriending Rouge and inviting her to the senior class pre-school party.
A Saturday job at an eclectic bookshop in town has Rouge discovering a very old book which her boss gives her as a gift, but it gets forgotten in the teenage rush of new friends and the party, but when Rouge comes face to face with a fearsome creature in the woods it’s Grace’s mysterious brother Michael who comes to her rescue.
There’s something amiss with Grace and Michael, strange whispering and finishing of thoughts, but Rouge can’t get over a familiar pull and feeling of comfort which she gets from Michael, it’s a shame his adoptive father Caleb seems so cold and dismissive.
Now I really liked this book, I sat and read it in one sitting and was disappointed when it ended. I’m a Twilight fan and I will admit it made me think about that series a couple of times, but in a good way. I think it may be a book to love or hate, I liked the sizzle of romance and I thought Grace a bundle of troublesome fun, It will be interesting to see how the series pans out.
