A little backstory for you readers:
Kirsty Thompson and some friends are out having a good time without a care in the world until she comes home and goes to bed. Noises in the night wake her up and she is not sure why she has alarm bells going off in her head, but she finds out quickly when an intruder attacks her rendering her unconscious with a needle in her neck.
When Kirsty finally wakes up in the morning with a terrible pain in her back she tries to remember what happened and why her back hurts. Kirsty calls the police. When the police arrive along with the paramedics, they examine her and find she has some kind of carving in her back. From this point on in the story is when everything goes to "hell in a handbasket"!
Did I say "hell"? Yes that is what I said as this book will take you into the "depths of hell" as you journey along with Kirsty on finding the answers she seeks of why the intruder attacked her and what was his purpose of carving something into her back.
Who was the intruder? What did the intruder carve into her back? What happens to Kirsty as she tries to find out why this has happened to her? No spoilers here as you will just have to read the book!
Nail biting suspense and tension just grabbed me right from the beginning of the book as it doesn't take long for something to happen. The author just slowly draws you into his world of terrified horror as you inch your way along in the story. Just when you think you might have it figured out, then he lowers the boom and throws you into the corner of your room with the covers over your head cowering in fear of what will be happening next!
The demonic theme of the book just radiates off the pages and you can feel every single emotion of the character Kirsty along with what she has to endure for the entire story. This book kept me up some nights almost to the point of thinking about leaving a light on, but I swallowed my fear and moved forward through the book with the lights off! Five "spooky" stars for keeping me creeped out!
I need to say that I like these books. They are well written, well plotted, with well-drawn characters. The stories are very, very dark.
Things did not work out how she expected them to and honestly the story lost its horror feeling for a bit. There was a supernatural aspect that started out scary but then became a little zany but I think that was mainly because the bad guy in this story didn't sell it for me. I did enjoy reading this book and I didn't walk away from it but there were a few eye roll moments and I just wanted more from this story. I wanted to be both terrified and entertained, in the end I had to settle for the latter.
The prior books really got me into them, this one, not fond of the helpless, "oh poor me" main character. Looking forward to the next book. Hopefully is as gripping as the previous ones.

The Mark is a fast-paced, suspenseful horror story. L. Mountford has written The Mark in such a way that it gets you thinking as you read, it makes you pause and reflect from time to time, or at least pause and look over your shoulder. I did this more than once!!
The Mark is a creepy and unsettling read, one of the best I’ve encountered for a while. That said for me I think the book/eBook would have been better for me, why? Because I don’t feel that the narrator does the book the justice it deserves, more annoyingly I can’t quite put my finger on why I feel like this. To me, it just felt off.
But don’t let that put you off if you fancy the book. I intend to get myself a copy of the book; either in eBook or paperback; and read it myself, after I’ve read some of Lee Mountford’s other work.
The actual writing of The Mark is really good. It’s easy to see that Lee has put in effort, research, thought and emotion whilst writing this. His characters have a good level of depth and are realistic.
It’s easy to become totally immersed in the world that Lee Mountford has created, and his words grab your attention and hold you there in the thick of the plot until the very end.
Overall this is a great creepy, check over your shoulder horror book. I’m looking forward to discovering more of this author work!
