When Sam informs her that he’s her guardian angel and that she has been given the gifts

I'm gonna round up from a 4.5 for this one! I think this may be one of my favorite angel books ever! I loved the fact that Clarity already had a love interest and that her romance wasn't with her guardian angel. Forbidden love is great and all but well, let's just say been there done that. This book is set in the south and I love that the author wrote the characters with a noticeable southern accent. The voices of these teens actually sounded like teens without being over the top dramatic. I als ...more

Meet Clarity Miller: Just your typical teenage girl enduring the ho-hum grind of high school and working a menial job in the tiny town of Garlandton. Raised by her aunt, A.C., of whom she rarely sees, life drags on as one perpetual loop until Clarity's world is rocked forever by an angel named Sam. Having received strange "tattoos" on her hands, and a heightened sense of looming evil, Clarity struggles with the knowledge that her life will never be the same.

Author Jenna Kay does a brilliant job

Mark of the Seer is the first book in Jenna Kay's Seer Society series. It's a good young adult story featuring a 17 year old girl named Clarity. Despite wanting to get away from the small town she lives in, things are going well. Things suddenly change though, when she sees her guardian angel for the first time. Clarity finds out that she is a Seer – she is capable of seeing angels and demons. Things go downhill from here, and she is faced with things that no teenage girl should have to face. Al ...more

This is a really fun YA read! I enjoyed taking the journey with Clarity while she straddled the line between her "normal" life and her life as a seer. I can't wait to read the next installment! I recommend this for anyone who loves the paranormal and it's a great read for teenagers! Enjoy! I did!

Clarity lives in the town of Garlandton, a town that she can't wait to leave behind when she graduates high school. Although she dislikes the town, she is not unhappy, she has a boyfriend who she loves and adores (and he, her) and her friends, who know how to make her smile. Life is going okay...until Sam shows up.

Sam is like no other boy she has ever met and she is instantly drawn to him but not in a romantic way, it's something else, something almost spiritual. Whenever Clarity is around Sam s

If you've followed me in some form for quite a while, you know that when it comes to YA paranormal I prefer them in a realistic world, and I prefer them with angels. My angel obsession gets the best of me every time. With Jenna Kay's Mark of the Seer, there is no exception. I love when an author manages to put a different twist on my favorite sub-genre of novels, and Kay does just that! Mark of the Seer is 270 pages of intrigue. It is filled with demons, angels, and Biblical Seers, humans who r ...more

Today's review is on Mark of the Seer by Jenna Kay

Mark of the Seer is a unique tale of good vs. evil, or should I say God vs. Satan, as that is the overall premise of the book. And though I did like the book overall, I personally feel that it was a little flat. Yes the characters were believable and faced the temptations of most teenagers; alcohol, drugs, sex, unplanned pregnancy, etc, but I kept waiting for the excitement only to experience it at the end of the book.

This book was such a amazing read! The last 20% of it is what secured it with a 5 star rating from me! Mark of the Seer had great characters and an amazing plot! I really enjoyed the plot! There was action in it and it went at the right pace to keep me interested! I didn't agree with the amount of alcohol and the mention of smoking pot in this book though! The characters were a bit of a different story! Clarity Miller was the main character and there was something about her that annoyed me! I do ...more

What a fantastic read Mark of the Seer was!!

Clarity is just a normal teenager..... Or so she thought!! That was before the dreams and Sam, her Guardian Angel enter her life.

One of the things that I loved most about Mark of the Seer was that Clarity really struggled with the supernatural side of herself. In my opinion in some paranormal books the main protagonist seems to accept their gifts much too easily!! You know they wake up one morning and can do magic, or read peoples minds and it's like "

It took me awhile to get into this book and just about when I was about to stop reading it started getting good. Clarity is your typical teenager, or so it seems. She actually has a lot more going on for herself than most, but doesn't see it. Then one day she spots this beautiful boy outside her classroom and a calm washes over her as never before. She has a wonderful boyfriend named Brenton, who I'm sure every girl wishes they had, great friends, and her future holds so much. Then one night her ...more

10*s. I barrowed my copy of this book from Amazon's Prime list. This is an amazing story that had me hooked crom beginning to end and I loved everything about it! Clarity is such a strong willed, bull headed character and I loved her. This story is fast paced and well written, and I finished it in a day!! This is a MUST read YA story that will hook your from page 1! Thank you, Jenna for an awesomely refreshing story about angels and demons!!

Clarity was such an awesome story about the battle between the natural and supernatural realm. The ultimate battle between good and evil. I think Jenna Kay did a wonderful job describing this battle and how this would affect a normal every day teenager. Clarity is a character that I believe every teenager can identify with in there every day struggles.

First Line: “My favorite day of the week is Saturday. I can sleep until noon, shower or not (depending on my mood), and do whatever I feel like doing. Things I can't do during the week can be done on Saturdays. It's my happiest day of the week. Usually.”

Yet another Crushing Hearts Black Butterfly book. And this one was just as great as Ember! I don't think I've ever read a book about seers. That's what makes this book so intriguing. A unique plot, a unique storyline, and spunky characters to boo

Loved this angel story, not like the ones I have read lately. It definitely has a focus on life as a teenager in a backwoods small town, lots of partying, drinking, and other shenanigans teens get into. It gave for a more authentic, realistic story. You get into Clarity’s head and she is very likeable. I found that her feelings were well written when it came to decisions in her life.

Now that being said, Sam the guardian angel, he felt like the most real guardian angel I could think of. He was k

It was definitely a good read!
I did read many angel books but this one was captured my interest for sure.
Clarity - carefree,stubborn,full of life girl encounters something that makes her life shattered..makes her rethink what she has seen around in her life again...
Now she begin's questioning herself whether heaven n hell,evil and good,angels and demons ...she has never thought are real?
Can she accept what she is ..or will it be too late before she understands the gravity of it!

Addendum to my first review as I just finished reading the book for the second time. Clarity is a young girl, a senior in high school, and she is about to get the biggest shock of her life. On the first day of school she sees a “hawt” boy who smells of lavender that seems to slows time in her classroom doorway, and then the nightmares begin. From there her eyes have been opened t

Captivating story telling by Jenna Kay draws you into a world of angels and demons. Suspenseful and sweet, the story of Clarity, her guardian angel Sam, best friend Kora, and boyfriend Brenton will take you for a spin beyond the normality of teenage life.

As if dealing with the loss of her parents, holding down a full time job, going school, juggling her social life, and preparing for college wasn't enough, Clarity now has a whole new secret life. She's a Seer.

I reviewed this book for Loves All Things Books!

Jenna Kay didn't disappoint with this book. Throughout the majority of the book I sat on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next.

Clarity is a normal teenage girl. She is looking forward to graduating high school and leaving town. After her parents died she was left to be raised by her Aunt. As a teen she is a partier/drinker.

She soon discovers that the new boy in town is not what he appears, she is the only one that can see h
