Review - A Marked Man by Lynn Townsend

I was hooked on this book from the first line. I’m not a big fantasy reader, but A Marked Man is the kind I enjoy—fantasy elements backed up by solid historical research, well-rounded characters and excellent writing. The main character, Mace, is just the sort of charming rogue I’ve always loved reading about—think Han Solo. Jewel/Catreen kicks ass. Lynn Townsend allows all of her characters, male and female, to show their weaknesses and emotions, making them relatable and sympathetic.

I found myself staring in horror at my Kindle as I watched the percent finished at the bottom. When it got to 99%, I couldn’t believe the book was over and I wanted more!

There were a few passages where I wasn’t sure if the events were currently taking place or were in the past. Part of that was deliberate I think, when Mace has the soul stone and is confused, but there were a couple of times further in that were unclear to me.

If you enjoy character-driven fantasy, a good adventure story, and very well written romance, you’ll love this book!
