Marked by Sarah Fine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
In a broken landscape
carved by environmental collapse, Boston paramedic Cacia Ferry risks
life and limb on the front lines of a fragile and dangerous city. What
most don’t know—including her sexy new partner, Eli Margolis—is that
while Cacy works to save lives, she has another job ferrying the dead to
the Afterlife. Once humans are “Marked” by Fate, the powerful Ferrys
are called to escort the vulnerable souls to either eternal bliss or
unending fire and pain.
Unaware of Cacy’s other life, Eli finds
himself as mesmerized by his fierce and beautiful partner as he is
mistrustful of the influential Ferry clan led by the Charon—who happens
to be Cacy’s father. Cacy, in turn, can no longer deny her intense
attraction to the mysterious ex-Ranger with a haunted past. But just as
their relationship heats up, an apparent hit takes the Charon before his
time. Shaken to the core, Cacy pursues the rogue element who has seized
the reins of Fate, only to discover that Eli has a devastating secret
of his own. Not knowing whom to trust, what will Cacy have to sacrifice
to protect Eli—and to make sure humanity’s future is secure?

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!
This is the third time I read a book of Sarah's and was astonished by the world-building! On "Marked" we fall into a world after the climate change, where a family rules as the Ferry's, meaning Charon, the deliverer of souls.
Cacia is the daughter of the family and along with her siblings and father help the souls pass on Heaven or Hell. When she meets Eli, a man who can make her feel more over her duty, the same day her father dies, she realises that she may lose more than she expected.
I liked the use of Greek mythology on the novel and I felt it added more mystery to some characters, especially Moros. The intense scenes had me fanning myself and even the fighting scenes had me gripped on my seat!
I really enjoyed the chemistry between Eli and Cacy and I am sure that the next book will feature more of the Ferry family! :)
The novel was consuming and amazingly written!
