The author gave me this book for a review
An enchanting fantasy story about fairies, magical kingdoms and other strange and wonderful creatures that would be the perfect read for younger book lovers. The book changes from the point of view of a fairy princess to the handsome prince that wants to win her heart and, of course, the evil fairy that wants nothing more than to make things difficult for them and cause trouble throughout the kingdoms.
The cover of this book is beautiful and a real eye-catcher. The story is an easy read so anyone that wants a feel good story with romance and magic can just sit back and read until the sun sets and you are losing hours of sleep.
The story does get kind of confusing between scene changes since it isn’t shown clearly when the characters are in different places or situations which can get frustrating but after a while I got into the flow of the story and it was much better to read it.
This is definitely a good read for younger readers. It is a good story but I didn’t enjoy it all that much since I prefer reads that are for older readers and are a bit more intense which is why this should be great for younger people.
The author is talented and has a vast imagination because of the magical scenes and places that were described in the book. There was always something new happening and that keeps a reader’s attention along with great characters and a good storyline.

I was given this book from the author to give an honest review.
What an amazing faerie story. I have read books about faeries before but in this book I was amazed, on how B.C. Morin was able to weave the plot and make everything come together. With love triangles, adventure, fighting,good faeries, good creatures, evil faeries, evil creatures, good magic, along with evil and dark magic everything came together. B.C. Morin has a wonderful imagination that she was able to weave 5 faerie kingdoms that are all different from one another. Also the cover is done beautifully, wonderful job.
Mark of the Princess will leave you wanting more literally. The characters are very well developed that you actually fall in love with them. There is Princess Alannah of the Kingdom Meria, who wants to be free but her parents want to keep a tight leash on her. Princess Evyette who is Alannah's sister who falls in love with Tristan whose best friend is Prince Kaleb of the Kingdom Talom. There there is Brennus who Alannah meets while captured. Last but not least is the evil faerie Maligo.
Maligo has decided to kidnap Princess Alannah who he has special plans for, which will come into play later on in the story. When Princess Alannah is kidnapped her sister Evyette, Kaleb, and Tristan go through an adventurous journey to get her back, as they are traveling Evyette gets attacked since she is targeted. Not only does Alannah's story come out so does her sister's. During all the adventures and magic being learned and Alannah finally coming into learning her powers, Alannah has fallen in love with Kaleb and Brennus. Who will see end up picking? Alannah is a lot stronger than she thinks, but she has to learn how to get in tune with her magic.
This book is amazing and was and absolute joy to read, I could not put it down. It is a page turner with adventure and surprises around every turn. Perfect for YA and adult alike.

I applaud B.C. Morin for this excellent written book. It captivated me from the start it was like I was in the story with princess Alannah and Evyette. As they start to try on the journey of life time to the evil plot of Maligo and to the finding out about Evyette's past, and to Allannahs power awakening. As Tristan falls for Evyette and as Alannah finds her heart torn between prince Kaleb and prince Brennus. This is an awesome read I so highly recommend this book i can't wait till book 2 comes out. So why not start the journey and see where it takes you....

I loved this book. It really makes you feel what the character is feeling and doing it really is like you are living the book...Alannah the princess is strong and fiesty and also very powerful but does still not know how to control it, after she gets kidnapped she meet the handsome and sexy Brennus who is covered in tattoos which means he is of great power and very well trained..together they travel to find the elder faries who will help Alannah control her powers.. Feeled with action with just the right touch of romance. Prepare for an adventure. It was written perfectly i cant wait for the next one!!
