Book Review: Mark of the Seer

               Today's review is on Mark of the Seer by Jenna Kay

Mark of the Seer is a unique tale of good vs. evil, or should I say God vs. Satan, as that is the overall premise of the book. And though I did like the book overall, I personally feel that it was a little flat. Yes the characters were believable and faced the temptations of most teenagers; alcohol, drugs, sex, unplanned pregnancy, etc, but I kept waiting for the excitement only to experience it at the end of the book.

Clarity Miller can't wait until she graduates from high school so she can get out of her "hick" hometown. Orphaned at the age of thirteen, she lives with her aunt and works as a cashier. She gets decent grades, has a great best friend, and is crazy about her boyfriend. What could go wrong?

Receiving a visit from her Guardian Angel; Sam, Clarity finds out that she has been given a "gift" from God. She has been given the "gift" of being a Seer. With this "gift", she will be able warn others when demons are wreaking havoc. But will she have the courage or the faith she needs to save her town? You'll have to read the book to find out.

As a debut, Mark of the Seer is off to a good start; if just a bit slow. The story line is well thought, the character development is decent, but the editing needs a bit more work. I look forward to seeing growth form Kay, as I think she is very close to the mark. (No pun intended)
