Carrier of the Mark--Above the Mark?
I bought this audio book because it was part of the ½ price sale, and I enjoy YA. I went into this book with no expectations and really next to no idea what the book was about:
First and most impressive was Nicola Barbera… just stellar performance: Amazing Irish Accents in female and male voices and even an English accent! Her performance complemented the book so well. Stellar job!
I particularly liked the powers and details of the origins of the powers. In some ways I wish I had been physically reading rather than listening because there are some things about the origins of the powers and what they mean to the couple that I would have liked to read again.
My reading enjoyment suffered from what I think is an unavoidable Twilight comparison. (Girl with Dad moves to new place, Girl meets strange aloof devastatingly handsome boy, girl’s life is saved by boy in an unconventional way, boy is warned by family to stay away from girl etc) Actually, now that I think about it…if you were to take Twilight and marry it with Tamora Peirce’s Circle of Magic this is probably what you would end up with.
Would I listen to a sequel? (This is what I ask myself to determine how much I liked it.) Well, it would have to have Nicola Barbera... and ½ off.

Carrier of the Mark INCREDIBLE BOOK!
What made the experience of listening to Carrier of the Mark the most enjoyable?
The voice of the reader was AMAZING! Not only did I know every single character by sound, the reader was just amazing at accents and all the different voices. They were each unique for each character. I LOVED THIS BOOK!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Of course I loved Adam and Megan. They are ADORABLE! I want to know more about Petra. Adam's older brother and twin sister are amazing (I dont know how to spell their names as I have not seen them)! I loved all the characters so much!!
