Sixteen year-old Kara Nightingale’s ordinary life is suddenly turned upside-down when she dies in a freak accident, and she wakes up in a strange new world with a new career—as a rookie for the Guardian Angel Legion. Kara hurtles towards dangerous missions with the help of her Petty Officer and friend, David.
But when she discovers a Mark on her leg, the entire Legion accuses her of being a Demon spy. Angels are dying, and David begins to pull away from her. Can Kara prove her innocence as she becomes the Legion’s only hope?

It’s going to take a miracle to save the Legion, and Kara’s luck has just run out..

My Thoughts;
I did not finish this book. I read about 100 pages and I just could not get into it. I tried to give the book a chance but I was not connecting. I did not really like the characters. I thought the main character took her death a little too easily. I did not really like the dialogue it didn't seem realistic to me. The general story idea's of the book were good but not enough for me to keep going. 

I think that Kim's general storyline and plot were good and it could have been a really great novel. I just feel like she could have taken some more time and developed the character's a little more. Made the situation a little more realistic and conveyed the emotions of the character's better. 

I usually don't stop reading a book. I try to give each book a fair chance  but I just could not get into Marked and I tried.  I lam a huge  supporter of  Indie author's and I know that some Indie author's can produce a novel that you would not know have been self published. I believe that Kim should take another look at the novel and try to develop her character's. I think she could make something great out of her ideas

I Give This 1/5 Hearts.
