    One thought on “The Griever's Mark”

    1. I'm going with 2.5 stars on this one.Astarti is leashed to Belos. He has the power to leash people to him to gain control of them.Not like thatbut close. :PHe gained control of her at a young age since he has told her that her mother has abandoned her to die at birth. Hence she carries the Griever's mark (tattoo) on her neck.The good firstLoganCan I say Logan again?(He is the earthmaker that she teams up with)The bad:I got so damn bored with the world building in this one. There is the [...]

    2. My Summary: Astarti was abandoned by her mother, and left with the Griever’s Mark, which is placed on those about to die or unwanted children. She was taken in by Belos, who is known by many names, the deal maker, the deceiver, the liar. He makes deals with people offering them power in exchange for them accepting his Leach, which in turn feeds his magic. When Astarti was young he Leached her and now she has no choice but to do as he says. Through the Leach he can always find her and even take [...]

    3. Here's what I want in a book: adventure, romance, and a setting that takes me somewhere. That's what I've tried to give you in The Griever's Mark. I won't actually review my own book and would feel silly giving it stars (oh, yeah, that's objective), but I do want you to know where I'm coming from. I hope you have as much fun reading The Griever's Mark as I had writing it, and I hope you'll be back for more.

    4. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsMy Opinion of This Book: I thought it was pretty good!_____________________________________________THE GOOD. ●The female main character is Astarti. What I loved about her was that she realized her mistakes and fixed them. She's headstrong, stubborn, and kickass. A great protagonist.●Logan is the love interest. He's a character you can't help but fall head over heels for. He's so sweet and caring. [...]

    5. A delightfully imaginative, truly excellent YA fantasy, The Griever's Mark was a brilliant read that I absolutely loved. It had a richly built world, engaging character, and a few twists along the way. From start to finish, it was a fantastic read.The world-building was great. The world that the author created was lush and drew me in completely to the story. Astarti was a wonderful heroine. She was a dynamic character from the start. She held a lot of hate for the person that Belos had made her [...]

    6. I want to say thanks to Katherine Hurley and NetGalley for letting me read this book for an honest review. Before I started to read this book I was trying to find more about on . And surprisingly there isn't that much about. I know it hasn't come out yet but just wow. This book is amazing. I don't know what to say about it to make people read, but go to amazon now and click the pre-order button now. Please do it now. So at first I had the feeling and since of Throne of Glass. I was like nothing [...]

    7. 4.5/5 stars.I'm really, really impressed with this book. Fantasy is undoubtedly my favorite genre to read (though I admittedly don't read nearly enough of it), so I was really excited to get a place on the blog tour for this title. I was not disappointed. Plus, look at the cover. It's absolutely gorgeous.The world building here is great, talking about a society in which humans live in plain sight of other types of being such as Drifters and Earthmakers, who can use energy and magic of sorts. The [...]

    8. This story is exactly why I love reading so much.It sucks you right in and takes you to a world full of magic, adventure, heroines, battle, and betray.Astarti is a drifter (human who has the ability to travel through the drift- I imagine the drift as a structure made of energy strings- kind of like in "the Matrix")She was abandoned by her parents and found a new "home" with the twisted Belos, who uses her and her power. I like strong female kick ass characters, and Astarti is one of those.Then t [...]

    9. This book has been on my to read shelf for a long time. Astarti is leashed to a master named Belos and has been since she was 7 years old. This means she is his slave. She is also a drifter. The world is filled with drifters, Earthmakers and regular humans. Astarti can go in the drift which is something only a drifter can do. Risking extreme punishment she saves an Earthmaker named Logan. What follows is an unexpected reveal of who she really is and what she is capable. There is also some romanc [...]

    10. I’ll be honest—I didn’t have high hopes for this book. I was pretty unbiased and “eh, I’ll give it a go”. I will say—I was pleasantly surprised!The best part of the book (hands down) is the construction of the characters. I am a sucker for a strong female protagonist, and Astarti fit the bill. I also love her name. She’s been abused (after all, she is leashed to a master) but she’s one tough cookie. She has no reason to be a decent human being, but she is anyway, despite how ot [...]

    11. ~3.5stars~This was an interesting start to a series. It was a solid coming to age fantasy. It did end on a cliffhanger,which I am not a fan of but at least it was offered as a kindleunlimited. I'm likely to continue onto book 2 toe how this story plays out.

    12. I'm putting this at a solid 3.5 starsThis book has been sitting on my kindle for a while and I've honestly been really excited about it. A girl who has known nothing but slavery and evil her whole life finds that there is a way outwhen she discovers she is not who she thinks she is.Likewise, Logan has always felt like an oddball among those who practice Earth Magic. When he an Astarti meet, despite coming from two very separate homes, they find they have more in common than they think.Astarti an [...]

    13. 3.5 out of 5 starsReceived a copy from YA Bound for Tour Purposes - My thoughts are 100% my own.Astarti is Leashed to the one they call the Unnamed, a former Earthmaker turned Drifter and one of the most powerful men in the entire world. She is on a mission to recruit a rebel leader for her master and if she fails it will be on her. When the leader escapes her grasps and she is forced to face her master's wrath, Astarti finds an unexpected ally in an Earthmaker named Logan who saves her from bei [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this book, it's fast paced and super easy to get into. Around the 10% mark I couldn't put it down and I didn't know why, I easily could have finished this in just a couple short hours had I had the time, still I constantly found myself going back to it when I should have been doing other things. The writing is great, and the world is one of the coolest magical worlds I've read about, I really really loved learning about the Drift and the Current, and Earthmakers and Drifters. It [...]

    15. *Although I am reviewing this book in conjunction with a blog tour for the book, the ebook is one I purchased on my own and was not given to me by the author or tour host. As always, these are my honest thoughts about the book.*I am not even sure how to start this review, other than sayingOH MY GOD I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! And now I am DYING for April 28 to arrive so I can jump into book 2 the second it arrives! (Heck, I might even throw caution to the wind and stay up til midnight so I can start r [...]

    16. I think the book had a promising premise but lost it somewhere halfway. Too bad because I really loved the magic here despite the lack of explanations of how it works and the rules surrounding it.I think I would have loved it more if the world building was consistent. Instead I was left hanging and compromising making my own theories on how things look like, how it works, etc. Imagine going to see a movie and lo and behold you were made to wear blindfolds the whole time. How can I fully enjoy if [...]

    17. **Thanks to the author for providing me with a free ebook copy in exchange for an honest review** I give this book a 4.5 So this book was definitely something else. I really enjoyed this book, it had a lot of great aspects to it, although there were some things about the book that I struggled with.Some background of the story: So the generally idea of the book was really neat. The book is about Astarti, a girl who is a drifter and was raised by a cruel man by the name of Belos. Astarti happens t [...]

    18. I received this YA novel as part of first-reads. A big thank-you to and Katherine Hurley!Wow, just wow! I had high expectations for this book after reading the description about its comparison to Throne of Glass and Graceling through its adventure and romance. I was entranced from the beginning of chapter 1 and my interest did not waver one time throughout the entire book. Astarti is a well-written heroine whose genuine compassion, although conflicted, does not lose focus. She fights for what s [...]

    19. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book because I don't read very many in the fantasy genre. But this is a very well written YA fantasy story. I liked the character of Astarti. Even though she lost her Mom as a baby and Belos has been raising her since then and has had her "leashed" to him since she was seven, she is still her own person. She can enter a thing called the Drift where she can move quickly to different places and people can't see her. But she can see the leash in the Drift a [...]

    20. I received a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Abandoned for death at birth, Astarti has only known life serving Belos, an evil manipulator of magic. Gifted herself in Drift magic, she does Belos's bidding because she was leashed to him as a child, but all that changes when she meets Earthmaker Logan. Both Astarti and Logan have magic they don't fully understand and neither one has ever really fit in where they grew up. Together maybe they can discover the truth of whe [...]

    21. *** I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. ***Excellent worldbuilding, an intriguing and unique magic system, strong and perfectly fleshed out characters, a story filled with action, epic battles and romance that keeps you glued to the page all the way through: Katherine Hurley's first novel has everything I want in a YA fantasy and leaves me eagerly anticipating the release of book two. With this stunning debut which is certainly on par with some of my favourit [...]

    22. 4.5 STARSOMG!!! This book was without a doubt AWESOME!!! I was totally in love with the main character, Astrati. CAN YOU COME UP WITH A MORE KICKASS NAME???? I LOVE IT! OK so I like the character a lot because she isn't the type to wait for people to help her or anything. she goes head first into situations, also she has her own views & even though she is in no position to act on them, she does. She isn't a damsel in distress type heroine and I wont say she is kickass because It obvious from [...]

    23. This is an excellent young adult novel by a new author in the field. I was lucky enough to get an advance copy and read it through quickly.The Griever's Mark creates a world with it's own magic, characters, and dilemmas. The world of Astarti and Logan is harsh but also filled with beauty and that world changes when Astarti meets Logan and is tempted away from the life she has been living as an assassin. Astarti works for a Satan-like character named Belos and he does not want to lose her. Why sh [...]

    24. introduction to the setting, time, place, background needs much to be desired.outside of that, the story(once clear) is intriguing, beguiling, and thoroughly entertaining.with an interesting look on elementals, this world of drifters and earthmakers is unique.with a main char fighting against what's expected of her and the bonds that enslave her, she is worth getting to know. her story and the compassion she feels, experiences and interacts with in such a harsh world of war, hatred, and bigotry, [...]

    26. I recived this book as a part of First-Reads. I'm very glad I did.I loved this book. It was so hard to put down. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you're considering this and you are a fantasy fan, do read it.I thought it was very unique and creative. The world it takes place in has many rules and players, but it was wriiten in such a way that you understood everything right a way. I never had to flip back to try and remember who a character was or why they ar [...]

    27. Wow. I read Hurley’s Griever’s Mark for a critique group and honestly couldn’t put it down. It has got everything I want from a fantasy adventure novel. Astarti is a dynamic heroine, both light and dark, and the plot keeps you guessing. Romance, drama, and a beautiful, yet easy reading prose is just what I am looking for. The pace moves very quickly! Sometimes I have to stop and catch my breath. Cannot wait for the next installment.

    28. Really great world! So much new ideas and innovative story lines, I want to learn more about it. Its magic and relations differs from other fantasy worlds. I am really curious what comes next.I also liked the characters and their profounding thoughts. The battles were exciting and not explained too detailed. The end has a cruel cliffhanger, so I have to read the next book at once.

    29. Wonderful readThis book has perfect blend of romance and action. This is rare in my opinion. Many novels are slanted so much on romance that story is missing. I am so looking forward to next installment.

    30. This started out pretty well, but by then end I had lost enthusiasm. I like many of the setting and character ideas, but the final product did not pack as much of a punch as it could. I love the premise- flawed, unhappy heroine has been abandoned as a child and raised and controlled by a truly evil bad guy. She's a powerful tool for him thanks to her "drifting" skills- the concept of magic is based on shaping and accessing a alternate sort of dimension. Despite her unhappy circumstances, she doe [...]
