Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Summer Unplugged, The Immortal Mark is the first in a new paranormal romance series by Amy Sparling.
The only thing Cara got for her 18th birthday was an unexpected invitation to move out of her uncle's house. College isn't an option for a poor girl with average grades, so when her best friend Riley finds them a mysterious job opportunity that includes room and board, Cara is interested but thinks it sounds too good to be true.
The night before their interview, Cara has an epic night out with Theo, an impossibly handsome guy she just met. He's charismatic, a little mysterious, and it feels like she's known him her whole life.
When she runs into him at her interview, he's cold and elusive. He makes it very clear that he doesn't want her working with him, which only makes their mutual attraction burn hotter. Cara takes the job for Riley's sake and promises herself she'll avoid this jerk and his mood swings, no matter how hard it is to keep away from him.
Soon she finds out her millionaire employers aren't normal guys who live and travel in luxury. They're immortals. Theo wasn't trying to ruin her job prospects. He was trying to save her life, because the girls they hire never make it out alive.

Great YA/Teen Series But It Does Conclude in a Cliffhanger...

This book is a great start to a very unique YA/teen series. There is a touch of paranormal but not much. There is also a bit of romance. Cara and her best friend Riley have gone through a lot! They have such horrible luck and when things seems to be looking up they actually get even worse.

The narration was well done and brought the story to life.

I like the fact that the main characters are young but not immature for their age. They actually seem pretty smart trying to work with all the curve balls that life has thrown at them. They have been dealt a bad hand but they try to figure out how to land on their feet.

I really enjoyed the unique story even though it concluded in a cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the next book to see how they will get out of their situation. Hopefully, Theo will do his best to help them.

Hits the Mark

It has been a while since I read/listened to a book in the Teen category. I felt that this was more of a contemporary then paranormal which I wasn't expecting. There is a lot of backstory (there was a lot of this and the build up did take a while) and some romance. This is about two girls that thru circumstances are running out of options, and choices are made...And who does know the best choices to make at 18. This is just as much about them as the love interest with Theo...which is insta-love. Although they are teens, they were written strong with character flaws but with little immaturity. I did enjoy her writing style and the narration.

A solid teen book...and like I said this book did take a while to build up to the climax, but I am interested to see where the story goes.

I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest review.
