The Marks Saga: The Blue Mark (Book One)
Acacia doesn't like to kill. She knows how to fight when the need arises, but never before has the need truly arose. She lives a quiet life with her family and paintbrushes, away from the dangers that come with being the sole Black Mark. A mark that designates her as someone who could bring back the Dragons, control all four elements, and bring peace to a world run by a corrupt king, a manipulative queen, and a prince known for murdering entire towns via his father's legion of Vampires for the smallest of crimes.
After learning of the Prophecy at an early age-a Prophecy left by the Dragons, foretelling of six lead by one bearing the Black Mark, before the Dragons entered into their mountains never to be heard from again-she wanted to ignore it; she'd rather pretend that one day she would wake up and it would have disappeared from her arm, than accept that her life might not be hers to control. However, when Prince Atius shows up in her small town with an army in tow looking for her, she must make a decision. Stay and risk her family's lives or leave with Kane, a man she was engaged to, and accept her place in the Prophecy.
No one can make her become the savior Myriad so desperately needs. It's a choice she must make on her own. But does accepting her destiny within the Prophecy really mean sacrificing her freedom? Or is there something more important to gain through acceptance?
