Burn Mark Blog Tour review

Burn Mark by Lauren Powell
Published by Bloomsbury USA
Release Date: June 19th 2012
Hardcover, 416 pages

From Goodreads: Glory is from a family of witches and lives beyond the law. She is desperate to develop her powers and become a witch herself. Lucas is the son of the Chief Prosecutor for the Inquisition—the witches’ mortal enemy—and his privileged life is very different to the forbidden world that he lives alongside.

And then on the same day, it hits them both. Glory and Lucas develop the Fae—the mark of the witch. In one fell stroke, their lives are inextricably bound together, whether they like it or not . . .
Review:
Burn Mark is a story of witchcraft, but completely different than any other witch story that I have seen, and with an interesting premise and set in modern day Britain, how cool is that? I love books that take place in different countries. I did find the characters to be a little flat and boring at the start of the book, but thought they were more well developed in the end. Unfortunately I found the story to be quite drawn out, but the last part of the book was when the story really started picking up and I couldn't stop reading, it was very intriguing and I loved the ending. Overall Burn Mark was an interesting book, but seemed to draw on and on.

  2. As long as you cite the name of the movie and the year it was released, you should be fine.

  3. I'm making a book trailer for Eleventh Grade Burns as a project for English. Anybody have ideas for songs to use?
