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.

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.

Pleasantly surprised

The story captured me for the first chapter. This story is about two orphaned girls who became BFF growing up. And how s black cloud of bad luck keeps following theme. This story has adventure, suspense, romance and a bit of angst to go along with immortality. However, I was very disappointed that it ends in a cliffhanger. and no mention of another book to come. I still enjoyed the book. The narration was good.

I was provided a copy of this book from the author/narrator for a honey review.

Good start but needed more

This was a good start to a series. For me, the main female characters seemed a bit winy because their lives had a bad start. To their credit, they were trying to get out of their situation, but they jumped into something new without really questioning why the new job seems so perfect. I'm honestly up in the air as to if I would listen to the next book in the series even though (and perhaps because of) a huge cliffhanger. I don't mind small ones in a series, but I felt this one was too much and didn't truly conclude the book properly.

The narration of the book was great. I'd definitely listen to books narrated by Sarah Puckett again.

A great read!

An intriguing start to this new series!

A read that will capture your attention right from the start. Anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. It was sooo good that I listened to it in one sitting - no breaks, no stopping, just sat and listened for 5 hours straight!

The narrator did a wonderful job of capturing the book.

Perfect for readers of paranormal romances.

Great!

I really enjoyed this story! I like paranormal books like this - where they live in a normal world but there are just a few paranormal elements. I loved this story and the chemistry between the main characters. I listened to this one with my teenager and we both really enjoyed it! Can't wait to check out more in this series!

Great Read

I really enjoyed reading The Immortal Mark by Amy Sparling. Cara and Riley come across a job with great pay and room and board. But they find themselves in a bad situation. Theo is a man who she meets and falls for. Everything at her job isn't as it seems, but Theo is there and trying to save her life. I can't wait to read more by Amy Sparling.

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!!

Interesting


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.

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.
