"Excellent tension. Fun humor. Leigh Fallon has the "it" factor—the ability to make life spring from the page. As soon as I finished, I couldn"t decide whether to start over or just savor the story ... anything to stay in the world a bit longer. I"m already in line for her next book!"

"I gobbled up Carrier of the Mark in twenty-four hours, and felt warmly satisfied at the outcome. So many first novels leave readers on an extreme cliff-hanger with too many loose ends and no sense of closure. Carrier does not do that to you; however, there are just enough unanswered questions to make you want to read the sequel."
—Wendy Higgins—Author of Sweet Evil (Read the full review)
"I"m kind of a "want to see cool powers, good characters, a lot of butt kicking, and a good story" kind of reader. This book did not disappoint. It gave me a bit of everything I like in a book. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon is a perfect example of why so many adults are reading young adult urban fantasy these days. It"s just a good book."
