Waiting on Wednesday: The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

The Carrier of the Mark 

The Carrier of the Mark

by Leigh Fallon 
A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.
I love the idea of the Ireland location for this one and all the mysterious events unfolding. The cover is strange and beautiful too.   What are you waiting on?
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Very interesting! The cover is amazing, yet I don't like how the words overlap onto the girl. It kind of makes it hard to read...
