Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Summer Unplugged, The Immortal Mark is the first in a new paranormal romance series by Amy Sparling.

The only thing Cara got for her 18th birthday was an unexpected invitation to move out of her uncle's house. College isn't an option for a poor girl with average grades, so when her best friend Riley finds them a mysterious job opportunity that includes room and board, Cara is interested but thinks it sounds too good to be true.

The night before their interview, Cara has an epic night out with Theo, an impossibly handsome guy she just met. He's charismatic, a little mysterious, and it feels like she's known him her whole life.

When she runs into him at her interview, he's cold and elusive. He makes it very clear that he doesn't want her working with him, which only makes their mutual attraction burn hotter. Cara takes the job for Riley's sake and promises herself she'll avoid this jerk and his mood swings, no matter how hard it is to keep away from him.

Soon she finds out her millionaire employers aren't normal guys who live and travel in luxury. They're immortals. Theo wasn't trying to ruin her job prospects. He was trying to save her life, because the girls they hire never make it out alive.

    "Great YA/Teen Series But It Does Conclude in a Cliffhanger..."

    This book is a great start to a very unique YA/teen series. There is a touch of paranormal but not much. There is also a bit of romance. Cara and her best friend Riley have gone through a lot! They have such horrible luck and when things seems to be looking up they actually get even worse.

    The narration was well done and brought the story to life.

    I like the fact that the main characters are young but not immature for their age. They actually seem pretty smart trying to work with all the curve balls that life has thrown at them. They have been dealt a bad hand but they try to figure out how to land on their feet.

    I really enjoyed the unique story even though it concluded in a cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the next book to see how they will get out of their situation. Hopefully, Theo will do his best to help them.

    Story
    "Hits the Mark"

    It has been a while since I read/listened to a book in the Teen category. I felt that this was more of a contemporary then paranormal which I wasn't expecting. There is a lot of backstory (there was a lot of this and the build up did take a while) and some romance. This is about two girls that thru circumstances are running out of options, and choices are made...And who does know the best choices to make at 18. This is just as much about them as the love interest with Theo...which is insta-love. Although they are teens, they were written strong with character flaws but with little immaturity. I did enjoy her writing style and the narration.

    A solid teen book...and like I said this book did take a while to build up to the climax, but I am interested to see where the story goes.

    I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    "wasn't sure at first, but loved it!!"

    Going someplace fun for the very first time is exciting! but then to meet a sexy stranger would double/triple that. Wasn't expecting the night to end that way but that was only the beginning. To be offered an opportunity that would change your life forever, going from hand-to-mouth/paycheck to paycheck/struggling to pay the bills to having anything and everything you could ever ask for, heck yea! but of course that has to be a catch... that's where they get you. Finding out what that catch was was a total shock to me, i was in no way expecting it.. and to end the book like that?? Hopefully there will be more books to come because i sooooo want to find out what happens next for everyone!!

    I like that it is a twist on immortality. I would have liked for the story to get to the immortal mark sooner, however i did enjoy how they allowed us to get to know each character. I think that gets us more invested in the story. Theo is a good guy and hopefully he finds a way. Cara and riley are two great characters. Cant wait for the next one.

    "Need more!"

    I was hooked from the beginning. I basically listened to this in one sitting. This series is soo intriguing and different. The 1st book does a lot of building. The author did a wonderful job of dangling carrots at the end that leave me drooling for the next installment. This is not a stand alone so don't expect anything to be completed with this book alone :) Love this series and can't wait for the next book! Thanks!

    Not to leave the narrator out- She did a wonder job!

    Note: I received this book free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. It in no way affected my opinion.

    "The Immortal Mark"

    I enjoyed this book! Warning though, it ends on a cliffhanger! Well, not really a cliffhanger, it just kind of stops LOL It's different though, which made it interesting and I love the narrator! She does a great job! Good book, worth the buy!

    "The Immortal Mark"

    I received this audiobook for an honest review.

    I liked this book, although I found some parts really rushed (such as Cara & Theo falling for each other - I found that really unrealistic but hey...its a book- its suppose to be unrealistic), I found some parts a little slow...but all in all it was a good book. It follows 2 young girls who have nothing & jump at the chance for something more so its understandable that Cara falls so quickly for Theo, its something good in her life & she jumps at it. Theo acting a little bit like an a$$ when the opportunity for something better comes along for Cara is his way of trying to save her.

    I listened to this book all in one day, so I am looking forward to listening to the next one.

    "First Amy Sparling book & I loved it!!!!!"
    Where does The Immortal Mark rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really, really enjoyed this story. The story line was good, kept me interested as to what was going to happen next. I couldn't stop listening!!!


    What about Sarah Puckett’s performance did you like?

    I love Sarah Puckett. She is one of the best narrators out there. I have listened to her narrate several books and she just keeps getting better and better.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is a book 2, 3 and 4. I will buy them all!!!! Def worth a credit. I'm off to find more books by Amy Sparling!!

    "Good start to a series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    3.5 stars
    Definitely. I really enjoyed this story. It was a creative interesting and entertaining story.

    It's got an unusual and unique little twist to how immortals keep themselves immortal. The characters are immediately likable and it has an interesting storyline.

    However, It's not a standalone book and does end in a cliffhanger. So be warned. I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see what happens next.



    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Immortal Mark?

    Without giving away any spoilers, when the true purpose of the bracelet is revealed.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Puckett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have. I enjoyed her narration of this book was much more than the other I listened to. Sometimes it's just a matter of the right narrator for the right book. She was the perfect choice for this book. Her narration pulls you into the story from the start. She has a pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. It's clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. She was able to bring the characters and story to life. Very enjoyable.

    Story
    "A YA Book"

    This first book is more about Cara and Riley and there relationship with each other and how they came in contact with immortals. I love how the characters interacted with each other and how different they are in personality. I also love how they stick together, which is understandable with their background.

    Where some books feel like it is forced when one character tells another their secret, it is not so in this book. I think this is to do with the fact that we get to know the characters and how they interact with each other.

    This does end on a Cliffhanger. We get to know a bit about immortals before it stops. I like the authors twist on immortals and I can't wait to find out more about them.

    I thought the narrator did really well with playing out the different characters. Her voice suited them and I can distinguish between the characters.

    I would recommend the book.
