Review: Marked by Rebecca Zanetti

MarkedZane and Janie Kayrs

(Dark Protectors #7)

Marked (Dark Protectors, #7)

Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice…


For years we’ve been waiting for Janie and Zane’s story. We’ve been building up to it since Janie was four, we’ve been catching glimpses of them in Janie’s dream world and Zane even rescued her in a past book.  We have also been anticipating the big reveal on Janie’s role in saving the world, would it live up to the build up?

I loved loved loved the characters. Zane is all hard warrior and protector, but he has a secret, he’s a half breed and his other half is not an ally. He is convinced that no matter how much he wants Janie, he can’t have her not forever. Although, he’s stubborn and a warrior his will is no match for Janie’s. She knows Zane is hers and will be forever, she doesn’t care about the obstacles or his other half, and he is hers!  These two come together under difficult times but they preserver. I loved their story and how they come together for the good of their family and for themselves. Even when it seems like all odds are against them and there is no hope for them or anyone else they remain together as a solid team. I really enjoyed the story but where I had a problem with this book was the big reveal. Yes, Janie and Zane ended up saving their people but the how was a letdown. I can’t say what it is but come on… that was it? That was how they save the world.. whaawhaawaa
