Review/ Marked Beauty

Title: Marked Beauty

Author: S.A. Larsen

Publisher: Ellysian Press

Release Date: October 2017

Uncovering hidden secrets can sometimes kill you . . . or worse, steal your soul.

 Anastasia Tate has a secret. She can feel the emotions of others through their life energy auras. Not a welcome gift for a teenager. Especially when a sinister presence begins stalking her.

Viktor Castle also has a secret. He’s tasked with protecting humanity yet cursed by an ancient evil to destroy it.

After Viktor saves Ana’s life, her abilities grow stronger. Drawn together, she senses Viktor has answers to lifelong questions. Only he shuns her at every turn, knowing he has saved her only to put her in more danger.

As Ana struggles with her attraction to Viktor, he tries everything to bury his unexpected feelings for her. But they must find a middle ground. For only together can they combat the dark forces threatening both their lives . . . and their souls.

A quick thank you to Chapter by Chapter Book Tour for allowing me to be a part of this tour and for sending me arc of the book to read and review.

Surprise guys I read another fantasy book and another one I really enjoyed reading. I am really looking forward to reading more from S.A Larsen if this is any indication of how good the books are.

I really really enjoyed this book so I need to be careful not to tell to much because I want you to go and pick it up and read for yourself.

Do you ever read a book that starts off amazing and you try and force yourself to slow down and savor the book? That was me this time around. I really wanted to sit back and take it all it but found it hard to do because I was sucked in right away and I just had to take it all in. I need to read it and practically read this in one sitting.

Ana is not your typical teenager. She may look it but deep inside she has the ability to feel people’s emotions through their auras. Something that I think she would rather not have and no one knows what she can see except Meme who is like a grandmother to her. Then a menacing dark force arrives leaving Ana confused and not sure what is going on.

Ana has two friends, Katee (who is everything Ana wishes she could be) and Josh, who really likes Ana and they both share a love of hockey. But things are soon going to change because Ana will be moving into her new school.

What Ana doesn’t know is that she is being stalked and we find out its Viktor who has come to the rescue of the car crash Ana and Katee is in. He is quick to rescue the girls but Ana has no memory of this. Ana is confused as to why she is okay and Katee is not.

Marked Beauty is told in two points of view. That of Ana and that of Viktor. Which I really like because as the story progresses we get to know Viktor a little bit better.

Ana knows there is more to Viktor then what he is telling her. What will Ana do when she realizes they are more connected then they realize?

For the first time Ana is attracted to someone who she feels doesn’t feel the same way but little does she knows he does feel the same thing and he is trying his hardest to protect her because he needs her to help fight the dark forces that are threatening their lives.
