I really enjoyed the first book of this series (The Mark), up until it suddenly switched from philosophical to paranormal in the last few chapters. I didn’t plan to read the sequels, but somehow I forgot that by the time this book came out. Unfortunately, this book was far more paranormal all the way through. The storyline itself didn’t interest me much, but I really love Jen Nadol’s writing, and she kept me reading quickly all the way through. I would have preferred The Mark to be standalone, but that I’ve read two, I’ll probably read the third book in this trilogy once it comes out.
Note: Last I heard, this series didn’t do well enough, and the third wasn’t going to be published. Boo.
