Lexa Blue thought she had her life figured out. She’d go to college, maybe get a job, and wait until the Demon whose Mark she bears comes to collect her soul. No real concrete plans since it wouldn’t matter in the end. What she did not expect was the end of the world.
Conquest. War. Pestilence. Death.
Even with her trusted Warlock friend, David, Lexa is clueless about how to stop the apocalypse—but she’ll still try; because of her Mark, she can’t die. Who better to fight the Horsemen?
It’s not that simple. With a prophetic girl as a new sidekick, a group of Vampires who’re suspect, and an FBI Agent who somehow knows her connection to the biblical figures, Lexa’s life is going to get a heck of a lot worse before it gets better.
When her Demon finally comes to claim her, will she be ready?
A Mark Unwilling by Candace Wondrak (The Reckoning, #1)
Lexa’s future and her soul were doomed before she was even born! Pretty sure that explains her attitude, her solitude and her penchant to not plan ahead, after all, someday her demon will come to claim her and she is pretty sure all hell will break loose. What Lexa didn’t expect was that the Apocalypse would come, one horseman at a time and she could be humanity’s last hope to survive. Oh, and her demon has come to claim her, ready or not. Thanks Mom and Dad.
Candace Wondrak’s A MARK UNWILLING may mark the end of time, but it shouts the beginning of a series with attitude and entertainment in spades as Heaven and Hell show up to play Monkey-in-the-Middle with Lexa. Are you ready to be completely entertained, to laugh in the face of danger at the most inappropriate of times or to witness the true heart of a young woman who has little to be selfless about? Meet Lexa, her unlikely allies, her enemies and be part of the mayhem and madness that is her life.
Meet vampires, warlocks, demons and even an FBI agent and hang on for an appearance or two by the denizens of Hell as Lexa is claimed, Lexa gives as good as she gets and Lexa finds that just maybe she does have something to live for.
Tremendously entertaining, wickedly witty and brilliantly written, I for one, cannot not wait to see Lexa in action again! This series is going places...
