Jaime's Review of The Marked by Inara Scott

From Inara’s website www.inarascott.com
Dancia’s back at Delcroix, but this year, everything’s different. Dancia’s Talented, and her powers have earned her an invitation to join Delcroix’s real raison d’etre –the Program. Dancia’s wanted to use her powers to help people all her life — and now Delcroix is going to give her the training she needs to use her Talent for good. At least…that’s what the school saysshe’ll learn to do with her powers. Her cuter-than-cute boyfriend Cam insists that it’s true, and so do all the other students. But there’s still a little voice inside her head that wonders — if the Program’s so great, why did her almost-only-a-friend- Jack run away rather than join? And why would the school be getting attacked by angry ex-students? Dancia’s a loyal student…and a loyal girlfriend. But if finding out what’s really going on means talking to Jack, well — it’s a risk she just might have to take.

Oh Inara you’ve done it again! I absolutely loved The Marked! There’s a few things I’m mad at you for but I won’t get into it since its spoilery.

 I didn’t even have a blog when I got a review copy of her first book The Candidates I just had my goodreads page thanks Disney Hyperion J I like to think because of that it’s one of the reasons I started blogging! So if you want to check out my first and probably not so great and short review go here!

Back to The Marked though…. I loved the mystery in this book I mean I literally didn’t know who I could trust and even though I started out not wanting Danica to be with Cam in this one I did warm up to him. Man I still missed Jack though and the small pieces of the book that had him in it I savored; even though everyone thinks he’s the bad guy. I don’t he was just put in a crappy situation and I still love him! Inara did introduce some new characters that I absolutely adored too Barrett for one and she even made me like people I didn’t think I ever could. That being said Mr. Judan was not one of those people he still gives me the heebie jeebies! I mean he’s just one scary dude!

I loved seeing Danica grow more comfortable with her abilities and actually stepping in to the kick ass heroine role! I love the fight in her to seek the truth no matter what happens. I also loved seeing the way some people I never expected to see backing her up! I finished this book and I think I tweeted Inara saying I needed #3 now because the ending left me reeling. I need so much moar!!!!!!

I picked a cute passage between Cam and Danica  for my teaser.

Cam shrugged, then grimaced. “I’ve got no real Somatic talent. I figured when I started the Program I would need to work twice as hard to be able to hold my own in a fight.” He squeezed my hand gently. “You should have gone into the house. I was worried.”

Warm honey coated my insides. I slid closer him, though I was careful not to lean on his injured side. “Did you really think I was going to go inside? Just because you said so?”

He chuckled, then touched his ribs with his free hand. “Man, that hurts. No, I didn’t think you would go inside. But I figured it was worth a shot.”

Cam had tried to protect me. I choked up. Usually I was the one protecting other people. I mean, Grandma did her best to take care of me, but she was so fragile herself, it felt like I was the one in charge most of the time. Even when I used my power, it was always to defend someone else. It was just something I did, the way I was.

I loved the feeling that someone was watching out for me.

The Marked comes out April 3rd so make sure to pre-order your copy!

Add it to your Goodreads shelves. Oh and be sure to check back here where on March 29th as a part of The Marked blog tour we will have a guest post from my heart Jack!

A huge thanks to Inara Scott for the signed Advanced Readers copy! You are too good to me! 

Also thanks to Disney Hyperion for the E-book from Netgalley!


  1. I have The Marked for review, I still need to read the 1st book. I think I will be starting in within 3 books. I'm even more excited to start reading it!

    1. I think you're really going to love them Kristina! I love Inara's writing :)

  2. I have been looking forward to this book for SOOOOO long. Great review. Now I can't wait to dive back into Danica's world.

    1. I know! It seems like the wait for this was longer than it should have been! It's definitely worth it though :)
