The Mark of the King

The Mark of the KingThe Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Could not put it down. Jocelyn Green once again delivers a story that deserves the word “epic” to describe it. Filled with twists and turns, she takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of 18th century New Orleans. She makes the colony come alive with its sights and smells and dangers. Her characters are multi-faceted, interesting, and sometimes not what they appear. All in all, a combination that makes it all but impossible to not turn the next page.

Condemned of a crime she didn’t commit, Julianne Chevalier’s only hope of escaping her Paris prison is to marry a man she doesn’t know and sail for the French colony of New Orleans. Her one bright spot in the hope, however slim, that she might find her brother, a French soldier sent to tame the vast wilderness for the King.

No spoilers here, you’ll have to read it for yourself. But be warned … you may find yourself still reading long after you should have turned out the light!
