Please welcome back Kim Richardson, author of Marked: Soul Guardians #1! Today on the tour, Kim wants to give readers a more in-depth synopsis of Marked, so check it out!
When sixteen year-old Kara Nightingale, is on her way to the art gallery for her big presentation, she gets hit by a bus and dies. Moments later, she opens her eyes and finds herself in an elevator. The elevator’s operator—a chimpanzee—tells her that she’s on her way to Orientation, the second of seven levels in Horizon, where she is to become a rookie in the Guardian Angel Legion. Sworn to the Guardian Angel Legion oath, Kara is branded with a star on her forehead, paired with a Petty Officer, David—who becomes an ally, and is sent on assignments; to save mortal lives. Kara soon learns that jumping into small pools of water, is the means of travelling from Horizon to Earth, where they appear moments later with mortal bodies—or M suits. Kara fails miserably at her first assignment, when Shadow Demons appear and devour the mortal soul—leaving Kara terrified. Meanwhile, Kara’s relationship with David teeters on the brink of romance—when love affairs are strictly forbidden in Horizon. But when Kara discovers a tiny black Mark on her ankle, things quickly go from bad to worse. David sees the Mark, and accuses her of being a demon spy, a traitor to the Legion. She pleads her innocence, but he doesn’t believe her. Their friendship is over. Along the way, Kara must face her most dangerous challenge yet: saving an Elemental child. The Legion is in danger as they learn the Demons have an Elemental child in their possession—rumoured to be so powerful it could destroy the Legion. Kara is chosen for a special assignment—a Life-Quest. Succeeding in a Life-Quest, grants your mortal life back, as it was before you died, which is what Kara wants. And so Kara sets out on a terrifying quest filled with surprises and dangers at every turn.
About Kim Richardson:
I grew up in a small town in Northern Quebec, where I developed a wild imagination because—let’s face it—there was nothing else to do. I surrounded myself with art/books/animation and fell in love with fantasy novels and movies like, Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. I loved to be transported to other worlds.
Years later, I left my little “hick town” and moved to the city of Montreal, where I studied 3D Animation. I became an Animation Supervisor for a VFX company, and stayed in the field of animation for 14 years.
Now, I’m a full-time writer, enjoying the country life with my husband and two Bernese Mountain dogs, Simba and Maggie. My children.
I write stories geared towards children because, let’s not tell lies, I’m still a 13 year-old at heart!
