Burn Mark by Laura Powell

Amazon / Goodreads

Blurb via Goodreads-
"Glory is from a family of witches and lives beyond the law. She is desperate to develop her powers and become a witch herself. Lucas is the son of the Chief Prosecutor for the Inquisition—the witches’ mortal enemy—and his privileged life is very different to the forbidden world that he lives alongside.

And then on the same day, it hits them both. Glory and Lucas develop the Fae—the mark of the witch. In one fell stroke, their lives are inextricably bound together, whether they like it or not . . ."

I enjoyed Burn Mark. The world that Laura Powell created was creative and interesting. I did have a hard time getting really involved in the book, there was quite a lot of descriptions and details that I found myself skipping through paragraphs.  Glory was a great character, however I just didn't connect with Lucas. Overall this was a good read and I recommend to anyone NOT looking for a light, fast -paced read.

4 out of 5 stars.
