Welcome to Hollow Hills where the secrets and lies are as thick as the fog that blankets the town.
17 year-old Jemma Blackburn knows vampires are real. She watched one murder her father eight months ago. They tried to convince her otherwise, tried to tell her she’d lost touch with reality due to the trauma, but she knows what she saw was real. And now they’re after her again.

What she doesn’t know is that there’s a lot more to the seemingly coincidental bulls-eye on her back. These vampires—or Revenants as they’re called—are seeking her out for a reason. Because she’s Anakim; a powerful Descendant of Angels, and she isn’t the only one. That gorgeous guy who keeps showing up everywhere? He’s one too, and he’s got a secret that’s about to turn her world upside down.

What she soon discovers will force her to come face to face with a far more sinister world than she ever knew existed. A secret caste of ethereal bloodlines, a love-triangle chock-full of lies and deceit, and an unrequited destiny that would place her in the perils of the very darkness she has worked so hard to outrun. Can she forge her own future and change that which has been fated? Or will she find that some things are inevitable, no matter where you go…or how fast you run.

INCEPTION is the enthralling first installment in The Marked series. Full of atmosphere, supernatural adventure, and jaw-dropping twists that will leave you hungry for more.

This was an enjoyable easy read. I kind of missed books like this. I was in love with paranormal romance books when I was in high school, and it makes me nostalgic to read books like this.

Jemma has just been released from a mental institution. Now, she’s been sent to her uncle’s house. She has to go to a new school, and she has to act normal. She was prepared to continue that farce until she discovers that her uncle is hiding something from her, and her new friends may not be as normal as she thought they were.

I felt bad for Jemma. She was always kept in the dark, and she was always confused. The only true friend Jemma had was Taylor; which is unfortunate since Taylor is perfectly human. Jemma had to hide things from her, and she couldn’t vent to Taylor about any of her fears and frustrations. I wasn’t surprised by the twist, because I have been spoiled by some reviews while I was on goodreads. Thanks for that, you know who you people are.

I hope that twist will be remedied in the next book. I like that character too much.
