(Edgefield Slayers – Book 1)
by Laken Cane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dark Urban Fantasy, Possible future RH
Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited
Down and Dirty
Laken Cane has a way of twisting a dark tale to show the light that remains. Marked is no different, and starts a series which promises to be fascinating, bloody and very, very magical.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Making mistakes is part of life.
But sometimes, a mistake can cost you everything.
When her world is invaded by an influx of demons, slayer Krista Lennox calls upon something even worse to help her defeat them.
Too bad he’s more inclined to cause her trouble than to fix her problems. And too bad he thinks she’s…interesting.
As the city begins to lose hope and Krista’s situation becomes dire, she knows two things for sure.
Magic is not enough.
And time is running out.
If you like snark and humor with your emotion and darkness, kickass female protagonists and dangerous, protective men, you need to read this series!
Thoughts on Marked
Dark but good
This one plays with your mind, and your emotions. Set to high octane action in a reality twisting world, the characters in this new universe are well versed in bloodshed, magic and demons. Some are born with powers to stop it, while others merely try to survive in a time that is literally trying to kill them.
It’s messed up, macabre and just a touch delicious.
First Person, Single POV
Episodic, almost cliffhanger
NC-17 to XXX
- New world is dark, demon riddled and completely engrossing.
- Cast is Characters entrap and compel, for better or for worse. Even a demon lord.
- There are some you hate to love, and others you one to hate… or loath….. looking at you Micheal.
- Takes a bit to really fall into.
- Some is the action is confusing, with little explanation.
“Everything is wrong to somebody. Doesn’t make you a bad person.” (36%)
If you have read anything by Laken Cane before, like Silverlight, then you already know to expect a thrill of darkness, intense world building and vivid sexual tension. Marked is all of those things, and more – and will suit fans of both Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.
