This book is amazing, the plot was full of suspense. with betrayal, and codes every corner. There are intense moments where you can't rip your eyes off of the page. This book is also mysterious so you can't predict whats going to happen next, but when you realize it the plot makes so much sense. I have a feeling that next year the 3rd book, the assiasins curse will be next.
I loved reading this book! This is one of my favorite series. This book is full of surprising twists and turns, but it has an amazing sense of humor. Its a real page turner. It has characters that I love and can relate too, and while I'm reading I can feel my heart beating! I'm on the constant watch for the next book.
Mark of the plague was a really good book.It was the best book I read in red ceder.
mark of the plague was the best book that i read in red ceader. at first i was high doubt about the book because it seemed very sad,and sad books are not really my thing.so when i started reading the book i couldnt put it down there were so many amazing parts in it. the fact he lost the master of himself made a side story that left a bit of a mystery that was wanting to be solved. and that melichoir was the bad guy? it was so amazing . i would totally recommend this book mark of the plague to a kid to an adult for it was a super great book.
I thought this book was amazing, it really intrigued my inner mind and subconscious. in all I give a book 5 stars out of five, the author did an outstanding job of giving the characters dimension, personalities and real lives for me to care about. Anyway, this book I thought was amazing and phenomenal, keep up the good work Kevin Sands. I'll be looking for your next book.
