Fatemarked by David Estes - Guest Blogger Book Review

By 2:31 PM , , , , , , , , , , ,

In the spirit of fantasy epics like Throne of Glass and The Lord of the Rings, enter a world of magic and dragons, kings and queens, and victory and defeat, during a time when honor and valor still meant something.

No one knows why the fatemarked are born with godlike powers. Until kings start dying...
An ancient prophecy foretold their coming, the chosen few who will bring peace to a land embroiled in a century of mistrust and war. They are the fatemarked. Misunderstood. Worshipped. Hated. Imprisoned. Their time to step into the light has come.

Roan Loren...
He has hidden his mark of power his entire life, fearing the damage it might cause to those around him. When a series of ill-fated events send him on the adventure of a lifetime, Roan must face the truth of who he really is and what role he must play in the future of the Four Kingdoms.

Annise Garic...
Reluctant princess. Fierce brawler. When her family members start mysteriously dying around her, Annise is forced to decide whether to abandon the kingdom she's despised her whole life, or stand and fight for what is rightfully hers.

Grey Arris...
Thief. Orphan. Womanizer. Everything goes wrong the night Grey abandons the western princess during their midnight rendezvous in the cryptlands. Hunted by the law and a murderer of myth and legend, he must find a way to protect his sister and become the man he was always meant to be.

Rhea Loren...
Beautiful. Spoiled princess. Seeker of vengeance. Rhea's world of luxury and fame is turned upside down when she's accused of fornication, a crime carrying a brutal punishment: the scarring of one's face. As Rhea seeks to come to terms with her new life, she must choose whether to rise above or spiral down into darkness.

As their paths intertwine, they will soon learn that the fate of the Four Kingdoms is in their hands...

Jennifer's Review
This is my review of Fatemarked. 
It’s a wonderful book that I truly enjoyed reading. It is about a girl named Sabria who is born with a birthmark that gives her amazing powers. She has a baby girl who she believes was born to kill her husband. Does it happen? And what power does her birthmark give her? 
Later in the book, a woman named Gwen is forced to move to the North to marry a prince and try to settle a war between the North and West. She falls in love with a human named Alistair. Her father does not approve, but she is determined to marry him. Does her father agree later in the book? Does his father agree? What happens to them? Read on to find out. 
This is only book one, so the rest of the books need to be read also to find out what happens afterwards. 
5 stars!
