Description

Is being marked with just one of the powers enough? Is being marked with six? What about being marked with all 12?

When Mackenzie's 17th birthday comes around, she plans to spend a few years at the school for the marked learning about her new powers and then leaving and living her life. But nothing goes as planned when she attends the marking ceremony and all 12 marks appear.

Kenzie lives in a world where being marked with six powers is normal, being marked with seven or more is rare. But being marked with 12? Well, that's unheard of. With learning about her new powers, the last thing Kenzie needs to worry about is falling for her hot teacher. Not to mention the unneeded distractions of the sexy twins, the jerk in all her classes, and her older brother's best friend who finally seems to notice her. Romance and marked powers are never a good mix, not when there are people who desire her for more than her heart.

Kenzie may not know, understand, or want her 12th power, but someone does.

Nothing happens in this book

First off, listen to the sample. Something I must learn to live by. I read the books summary and was intrigued. During the entirety of this book it is every guy is so effing hot, everyone wants to screw the main girl Mackenzie, and She's always winding up naked. Literally the whole book. She goes to all but one of her classes ONCE. Other than one provincial vision there is no story line. This is one of the worst books that I have ever read/listened to. Please do not waste your money on this book.

Just no!

Interesting premise but found the characters not that interesting. It is not a very long story so that might have added to it but the story ends on a major cliffhanger and I absolutely hate that, especially since the book is already kind of short in regards to the overall progress of the story.
You don't really spend much time on background/story to get to know the characters/world/magic system, so I just didn't really care.
I guess the reason I am really writing this is because there was not any real story payoff in the end.

Loved Marked by Power in audiobook!

I fell in love with this first book in Kenzie's story! I couldn't help fall for Mr. Daniels and Enzo, but all the guys are great and I love their budding relationship with Kenzie. I also loved her relationships with her family and Kelly. It was cool to see her different powers, definitely could see this being a tv series because it has all the aspects that would fit on like the CW right now haha: supernatural/paranormal creatures, tension, intriguing plot, drama, awesome bad guys/gals. What more could you ask for!? Love this series!!

I enjoyed the narrators as well! There were some times that weren't as believable but that might have just been its the first part of the series and there is more background than normal. Can definitely say Book 2 was better for me and had me stopping what I was doing to listen (not too upset since it was housework/chores haha). Loved the different guys, sometimes it was hard to distinguish between them. Thought it was a solid performance and would definitely listen to more of them. Can't wait til they are all on audible ❤️

Excellent narration; hoping for better editing in future

Lots of creative potential but...
First, the opening scene is not a clip from the climax or very end. This isn’t Twilight.
Next, Co-Coward comes BEFORE Cr-Crowe when alphabetizing.
So what animal did she shift into? Large paws could be anything outside bird or reptile. White fur and growl only rules out one or two animals.
There’s a real logic disconnect when, for her protection, Kenzie is moved FROM the main dorm with many students TO Mr Daniel’s cabin “far outside the school; practically in the middle of the woods, and a far distance from the other teachers cabins”.
Especially when she is often alone, and the main danger is rebels attacking the school....
I’m curious to see where the authors take the next installment, but hope they tighten up on editing.
I REALLY like the ensemble cast for narration. Tops!

Great idea not living up to its potential

Narrator was great, and the plot had great potential, but it focuses WAY too much on the guys and how “hot” they are. I swear half the book is descriptions of the guys’ hotness and the word “body”. Still worth the read, but just be ready for the reverse harem focus in the first half of the book. It takes quite a good amount of time and picking to get to the actual plot.

Attention Keeper!

Loved it. Had my attention from the very beginning of the story.
Being thrown into different situations happens to us all... not when everyone is looking....

Over-Sexed and Not Enough Real Action

This could have been a great story akin to two other similar ones I've read, but I had too many problems with how the story was handled. Don't get me wrong, this was clearly a YA story so I went into it with eyes completely open. But many YA stories are great, such as Schooled in Magic or Zero Enigma. Here's my problem with how this story went. First of all the main character was just too much a victim. I get writers to have to present their main characters with problems they have to work to overcome, but it seems like everyone in the book could beat this character without much work. The second one is, okay how can I put this. Dear authors; no one, and I mean NO ONE, is that distracted by sex that much except in adult movies. Every chapter seemed to read like this: "OMG, the dangerous person is after me, but wow that guy is hot and has a nice package." Sure, guys notice woman parts and I guess woman notice guys parts, but if you're in trouble thinking about what sex would be like just doesn't come to mind. Maybe this is the kind of person the main character is supposed to be, but it happened way too much and was too damn distracting. A final problem is that instead of being surprised, the dangers just seemed to come out of no-where. All of a sudden this person is trying to kill the main character and it didn't feel like it was leading up to or foreshadowed. Even the big twist just seem forced.

I do not have a problem with a narrator sounding like a kid when they do young characters. But these students are supposed to be 17 years old. The narrator made everyone sound like they were 13, except the over-preoccupation with sex.

Like I said, I take YA for what it is. It's not aimed towards my demographic but it can be written in such a way that anyone could enjoy it. (See my reference to two YA series that I feel anyone can enjoy.) There are similarly bad books in my demographic with their own set of issues. This one wasn't my cup of tea. I don't think I'll be reading the other parts of this series.

Hard to follow

I feel like the writing was hard to follow. one minute she was mad at a guy, the next she was interested in him. I could never tell who was talking besides the main character.

Wonderful

The story is wonderful, but the time is too short. However, as the first book in the series, I was impressed, the story seems to be very good. Well, I bought this book as an indication of Audible, and I quite liked it, although I was a little reluctant after reading the synopsis, but I decided to take a chance and everything went well.
It is a book with a simple plot, but that capture the reader / listener with the intrigues that are being experienced by the main character and his friends.
This is kind of book recommended for those who are looking for a book to distract the mind but want to hear a good fantasy at the same time.
