Blessed by a Demon's Mark

Title ~ Blessed by a Demon's Mark
Series ~ Kat Redding, #3
Author ~ E.S. Moore
Publisher ~ Kensington
Published ~ 31 December 2012
Genre ~ UF/Paranormal

My Rating ~ 3 bites & a nibble out of 5

Kat Redding killed her brother and now she’s run off to pretend it never happened in a weird town called Delai. A town that she never realized was there before, run by a man who seems off somehow. Yet she stays anyway. Leaving her life and friends, especially Ethan, behind as if they never existed. When her demon mark flares to life she knows she has to return and honor her deal with him, but she has every intention of returning to Delai. However, when she finally shows up after being gone three months she finds out a vampire Countess has been searching for her. That’s never a good thing.

Ok, can you tell by my synopsis that I think Kat was a real self-pitying bitch for leaving Ethan for 3 freakin’ months?! I was really liking this series until she up and did that. Sorry, but Ethan is dependent on her and she just left? With no word? For three months?! Oh, boy, did I hate her guts. Then when she does come back she’s all bitchy and mad at the world, taking it out on everyone around her and letting her anger rule her actions. Gah!

Having said that, the story is well-written and the characters are well-developed even if I didn’t agree with Kat’s actions. And I have to say that the ending made up for all of it. Man, oh, man…Kat’s life just got super complicated and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Color me intrigued!

  1. Cool! I haven't heard of this series, I'm intrigued...sounds like it has all the elements I usually like-- paranormal, action, romance?

    1. Plenty of paranormal and action, but no real romance. Yet. The potential is there though.
