It is 1821 and forces have come together to unite a kingdom torn apart by strife and war. At the center of the turmoil is Kathleen- heiress to the throne and daughter of the king as harsh as the land he was born to rule.
As the epic story unfolds, Kathleen becomes enmeshed in a perilous game of desire and deception, tragedy and betrayal, vengeance and forgiveness, while the fate of the kingdom relies on the secret of The Deadly Mark.
“Captivating from the first page. A wild ride through a corrupt 19th
Century bureaucracy, complete with a suicidal princess, homicidal
suitors, and a champion worth dying for.”
——Tania L. Ramos, Author of Be Still
“The Deadly Mark is a passionate exploration of power and intrigue. Using evocative imagery and absorbing language, the book takes you on a journey that leaves your imagination hinging on the edge.”
——David Alexander, CEO of Arbitrage Magazine
“A fast-paced tale of courtly intrigue, dastardly deeds, a loyal
guardsman, and his quest to save a tormented princess from her
own self-destructive nature. The Deadly Mark is an entertaining
offering from promising new author Katherine Nader.”
