really liked it

BloodMarked wasn't at all what I'd anticipated. I'm, in the main, a stranger to paranormal stories so didn't quite know what to expect - but BloodMarked weaved a fast-paced action-packed tale pitting noble characters of old world myth (I pretty much fell for Stein, the super-huge super-buff totally charming rune-tattooed troll) against darker creatures borne from the unknowable world of the author's imagination; it's a modern world, today's world - but the creatures therein, with their eons-old heritage, are dark, hidden, menacing - and wholly relentless.

Greta, our heroine is thoroughly gutsy, very funny - and chosen; though chosen for what, exactly, she struggles to fathom as the beasts and phantoms in her dreams begin to manifest as real-life nightmares. She doesn't know it - but the real world is, indeed, at stake and she is humankind's only saviour.

Dedicated to her protection, then, is Jamiro - our hero. He's gorgeous, courageous and selfless; he's eternally conflicted though - doomed to perpetually battle the super-dangerous demon inside himself; it becomes a struggle, too, to curb his 'rising' emotional response to sexy Greta and balance his sworn duty to, above all, protect her against the evil marauders; it's a battle that Greta comes to witness, too, as Jamiro changes 'from hot-blooded man to emotionless agent, like she'd tripped the bastard switch or something…' Ha! It's good stuff.

This supernatural action/adventure story - powered by a frustrated unsatiated lust-at-first-sight love story - rockets on at a pace. It's written with natural wit and ease - and leaves you, without a doubt, wanting more. In fact…

'I swear my ticker can't take it…'
