Marked (The Birthright Series) by Amy Saunders

**I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Starting a new life is never easy, but when you are a teen with unusual powers that you really aren’t completely sure how to use them, it is even worse. Rosamund Brandt tries to make the most of her new life, but she is haunted by the past that could kill her or her family. She has to navigate a new high school, deal with emerging powers she doesn’t understand, and solve the murder of one of her best friends.

I enjoyed this book. I think it is hard when writing sci-fi to create a world so thoroughly that the reader completely believes it exists. Saunders nails it. She also does a great job revealing just enough information to tease the reader and keep her interested, without telling the whole story at once. Not all YA books create characters that are believable as young adults. All the characters in this book are solidly developed and true to the concept of YA books.

This is book two of the series. However, I did not feel like it was hard to understand the story because I hadn’t read book 1. I recommend this book as a good read. Come back next week for an interview with Amy. You can find more about her here.
