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.

The Immortal Mark

Cara and her best friend have lived a difficult life in group homes and poor. When an unexpected opportunity arises that seems to good to be true. To live a life of luxury for one year and get a big check at the end and a chance to renew for another year. Of course any offer like this has to have a catch! The narration is nice and easy to listen to. The story took a bit to get into, but now I can't for the next in the series.

🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

was hooked from the beginning. I basically listened to this in one sitting. This series is soo intriguing and different. The 1st book does a lot of building. The author did a wonderful job of dangling carrots at the end that leave me drooling for the next installment. This is not a stand alone so don't expect anything to be completed with this book alone :) Love this series and can't wait for the next book! Thanks!

Not to leave the narrator out- She did a wonderful job!

Didn’t get very far

This is no criticism of the story line as I didn’t get very far into it. The narration was sadly not for me. It was very slow and drawling and I couldn’t imagine a character with such speech. Maybe it’s a flaw of being British.
I mean no offence, it just wasn’t for me. Others may get in better with it.

A YA Book

This first book is more about Cara and Riley and there relationship with each other and how they came in contact with immortals. I love how the characters interacted with each other and how different they are in personality. I also love how they stick together, which is understandable with their background.

Where some books feel like it is forced when one character tells another their secret, it is not so in this book. I think this is to do with the fact that we get to know the characters and how they interact with each other.

This does end on a Cliffhanger. We get to know a bit about immortals before it stops. I like the authors twist on immortals and I can't wait to find out more about them.

I thought the narrator did really well with playing out the different characters. Her voice suited them and I can distinguish between the characters.

I would recommend the book.

Boring

Literally one of the most boring books I have listened to in a long time. Narrator was fine but literally soooo boring. Nothing really happens except three things and they are dragged out for hours.

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.

Pleasantly surprised

The story captured me for the first chapter. This story is about two orphaned girls who became BFF growing up. And how s black cloud of bad luck keeps following theme. This story has adventure, suspense, romance and a bit of angst to go along with immortality. However, I was very disappointed that it ends in a cliffhanger. and no mention of another book to come. I still enjoyed the book. The narration was good.

I was provided a copy of this book from the author/narrator for a honey review.

Good narrator

Story sounded better before I started... it's ok, got enough hidden secrets to keep you reading, but the last third it got somewhat predictable. Not hard to guess who the immortals are. the storyline would have been better if it elaborated on the world and the actual immortals. will not be reading book 2 and 3, sorry...

Wow the narration is bad!

Could not get past the first chapter! It felt and sounded like a teen was reading her senior paper out to her class, and was so nervous she put on a fake southern accent. So stilted and unnatural it was unbearable. Giving it some stars for story, I’m sure if you can stand to listen there is a decent one there.
