Peek Inside The Summer Marked

Salome left humankind behind to be with Gareth in the Kingdom of Summer. But dark forces are rising, her happily-ever-after is coming apart, and the Kingdom is on the brink of war. When she sends a frantic PLEASE HURRY message to her bestie, Kadie Byers is ripped from the human world and pulled into the kingdoms of Faerie, where she's shocked to learn that Salome's monsters are?real. Worse, unless she and Salome find a way to survive the deadly chaos, they’ll lose themselves to the deadly, icy grasp of an extremely vengeful Winter Queen…

Fresh off a break-up with her boyfriend, Kadie’s glad to be home from college for Thanksgiving. All she needs is a rebound guy, a box of chocolates, and some girl time with her best friend, Salome. Problem is, Salome isn’t returning her calls, and her family won’t say where she is. Feeling sorry for herself, Kadie ends up at Club Blade, a place filled with pumping music, dangerous guys, and promises of a good time. However, when midnight strikes, Kadie’s fun turns into a nightmare as she’s ripped from the human world into Faerie by a vengeful Winter Prince named Etienne. For the first time in her life, she realizes the monsters Salome always spoke of are real, and they’ll stop at nothing to destroy her friend.

Salome thought the winter curse was behind her. But winter has left its mark. Not just on her, but on the whole summer court. The Kingdom of Summer is falling apart, and Nevin is hanging onto his throne by a thread. With war on his doorstep, he has no choice but to send Gareth into enemy territory, which means Salome will be left alone—vulnerable in a world she doesn’t understand. A place where beauty is deadly and humans are pawns in the macabre games the Fae play. Both Kadie and Salome will have to call on all their strength to survive in a world where humans aren’t meant to be. With death and enemies all around them, it’ll be a miracle if they can survive.



"If you love fairies and haven't read this series, you MUST read it! So far, this is quickly becoming one of my favorites."- Andrea Heltsley

"I feel like this book gave me a little bit of everything that is wonderful in YA. There is romance complete with romantic tension), great supporting characters (some of which made me laugh and some of which made me want to squeeze them), and a villain who I wanted to attack and overthrow myself." - Delaney

"Lots of duplicity, surprises and twists in the story but this reader was just unable to put the book down."- Talking Books

I’ll be honest when I say that the first book didn’t impress me all that much, so believe me when I say this one did. It’s a slow burner, meaning that I gradually grew ...more

This book was absolutely fantastic, amazing, incredible....just so well done. Literally when I finished reading Winter People I did NOT think there would be a second book when it originally came out, because the way it ended was amazing. But now to get more in depth into the story an ...more

While I didn't get a chance to reading The Winter People, I did notice the praise for author Rebekah L. Purdy. So I picked up this book and started reading with no expectations. WOW! Fast-paced plot with fully developed characters (including a fab Big Bad) kept me turning the pages. All of my fellow ...more

This series continues to blow me away! I purchased The Winter People on a whim and absolutely loved it. It was steeped in romance, mystery and the supernatural.
I wasn't sure about this book since it was dual POV from Salome and Kadie. Soon, it grew on me and I liked knowing what was going on in the ...more

By Maghon November 16, 2015

So, I liked the first book pretty good, but the second book, WOW! Yeah, I can't believe I'm gunna say this, but the first book has nothing on the second book. I about lost my mind 48 times in this one. Seriously, this is a major contender for a favorite! I can't believe everything that happened in t ...more

First things first: I received an ARC through NetGalley.

I really liked this a lot more than the first one, it still got the same rating, cause it's still not enough for me to give it five stars.

There are a few spoilers ahead so beware...

I loved how fast-paced this book was compared to the first one. ...more

I did not have a chance to read the first book, The Winter People, before reading this one so I had some catching up and figuring out to do. I was still able to jump into this one and follow along though. This was such a well written book that I loved it. Rebekah L. Purdy sure knows how to get her r ...more

By Raeanne September 22, 2015

All of my initial reservations about this book disappeared as soon as I started reading it. I loved seeing immediately in to Salome's life with Gareth in the Faerie realm. It was like a glimpse at "happily ever after" until Nevin had to show up and burst that beautiful bubble. But before that, we se ...more

This picks up where Winter People left off and it is a amazing story. I love how Gareth is with Salome. Those two are so perfect together. Kadie I have some serious issues with. Not issues as in writing issues issues as in she truly is just a not nice person. She harbored all this anger and jealousy ...more

The Summer Marked I truly enjoy this series! I loved The Winter People and I love this sequel just as much! The author creates characters that are so complex and so realistic.

Overall I thought SUMMER MARKED was a great Fantasy YA.

After being saved by Garret in the human world and in-turn freeing Nevin (a fae prince) from his curse, Salome follows Garret (the man she loves) to the land of faerie. She ends up journeying with Garret to Summer, where Nevin is prince. The wh ...more

I loved this book! It was actually better than the first one. I liked the two points of view from Kadie and Salome and getting to see the different sides of Faerie. I also loved the introduction of the new characters (Darach, Demetria, Grisselle). The Winter Queen was something straight out of a hor ...more
