REVIEW: Marked (Servants of Fate #1) by Sarah Fine

Marked by Sarah Fine
My Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Cacia and her family are Ferrys. Not only is that their last name, but it's also their part-time occupation. ;) When someone passes on, the Ferrys are responsible for transporting them from the the in-between to their final destination, whether that be Heaven or Hell. The Ferrys have their nemesis—the Kere—who are the reapers. They are the ones that mark people for Death—not of their own accord, but via an order that comes from above, namely the Fates who weave the fabric of life. All this works as it should... most of the time.

Eli Margolis and his sister Galena arrive in future Boston from the barren wasteland of Pittsburgh. Galena has been offered a very prestigious research position at Harvard University, working on the cure to all infectious diseases. But her research could put a huge dent in the profits of the Ferrys and the Kere, a rogue Ker is determined to put a stop to it!

The author built a very unique world here, unlike any other fantasy/paranormal books I've come across. It definitely falls into the paranormal romance genre however, so there were some intimate scenes that seemed a bit forced and out of place. One can ignore that as they delve into the fascinating world the author has created here. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.
