Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
It is pretty much the end of the world. All chaos, magic, glamours, old gods, and Faeries were supposedly gotten rid of a long time ago. Maddy Smith knows that magic is still around because she was born with a 'ruinmark'. The other townspeople fear her because she is a witch. Then a traveler comes along, named One-Eye, and he sees Maddy's mark. He tells her she has a destiny. Maddy starts learning about runes, cantrips, and glamours so she can follow that destiny. All of this is mixed into old Norse tales and ancient powers that must be released to make the world again.

Runemarks was a very long book. However, it was extremely unique. This is because of all the Norse tales and the interesting characters. Maddy Smith is an interesting character because she is very different than the rest of them. She is stuck in her world of magic when everyone else fears that. Words that were made up were very amusing because it was something creative. The rest of the vocabulary was easily understandable, yet not too easy that I fell asleep. This was a very great book and I'll probably read it several times.
