Waiting on Wednesday – The Carrier of the Mark

It’s Wednesday again so time for Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine, this week I am drooling over this book, The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. Here is a summary from Goodreads.com

A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.

Let’s talk about why I love this book.  First that cover is gorgeous!  I love the colors and the fade from the dress into the smoke like substance on the bottom, it looks so intense and mysterious.  Second, the main character and I share our name (though mine is spelled Meaghan)  and I have a complete obsession with Ireland!  I have always wanted to go there and always think when I do get there (and I will!) it will be magical.  Third, the summary got my attention right away away and peeked my interest immediately.  I am so excited to read this book, I am not sure of the exact release date yet, but it is sometime this year so I will be keeping my eyes peeled for it.  So what are you waiting on this week?
