Waiting on Wednesday: The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

Phew, I’m powering through this week! I’m so glad today marks the halfway point through the week, even though I’m not even close to being halfway through putting away laundry. :p

Title & Author: The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

Genre: Fantasy, YA

Publication Date: October 4, 2011

Description: “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.”

Why I’m Stoked: I really love books set in other countries- especially Ireland. It already seems like a pretty magical place! This books appears to blend mystery, magic and love really well. And now, its on my my ever-growing TBR!

What’s your WoW pick this week?
