Goodreads | Amazon | B&N |

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vampires exist. So do werewolves. The creatures that you fear in the darkness? They’re all real. And the baddest of the paranormals…those who love to hurt humans…they’re sent to Purgatory, the only paranormal prison in the U.S.

His job is to stop the monsters.

Deadly forces are at work within Purgatory. The monsters are joining together—and their plans have to be stopped. FBI Agent Shane August, a very powerful vampire with a dark past, is sent into the prison on an undercover assignment. His job is to infiltrate the vampire clan, by any means necessary.

She wants to help the prisoners.

Dr. Olivia Maddox wants to find out just why certain paranormals go bad. What pushes some vampires over the edge? Why do some werewolves turn so savage? If she can understand the monsters, then Olivia thinks she can help them. When she gets permission to enter Purgatory, Olivia believes she is being given the research opportunity of a lifetime.

Olivia doesn't realize that she’s walking straight into hell.

To survive, they have to rely on each other.

When the prisoners break loose, there is only one person—one vampire—who can protect her, but as Olivia and Shane fight the enemies that surround them, a dark and dangerous passion stirs to life between the doctor and the vamp. Shane realizes that Olivia is a woman carrying secrets—powerful, sinful secrets. Secrets that a man would kill to possess.

And Olivia realizes that—sometimes—you can’t control the beast inside of you. No matter how hard you try. Some passions can push you to the very limits of your control…and the growing lust that she feels for her vampire…it’s sending her racing right into a deadly storm of desire.

Welcome to Purgatory…a place that’s a real hell on earth…

"I want to keep her with me forever.
I just found her. I’m not prepared to let her go." -Shane

Marked by the Vampire is the second addition in the Purgatory Series by Cynthia Eden. This book tells the story of Dr. Olivia Maddox and Shane, an FBI Agent.

Olivia is an ambitious doctor who hopes to get access to the Purgatory prison, where the most dangerous paranormals are sent, in order to furher research the paranormal powers. Shane is sent to the Purgatory as an undercover agent with a mission. His mission though is forgotten as soon as he meets Olivia on his way to "hell". Olivia suspects that something's off with Shane but she couldn't be more wrong...

Shane isn't your average vampire but neither is Olivia. They both have sectrets and a past that should stay hidden. Their attraction is immediate as is the deep connection they have. Shane knows that the Purgatory is out of control and Olivia won't be able to survive without him protecting her. Olivia knew that Purgatory wasn't the average prison but the corruption within terrifies her. When "accidents" start happening to her and especially when a werewolf discovers what Olivia really is, she knows that she must leave. Leaving though isn't as easy as she thinks.

Shane is shocked by the anorthodox way the purgatory is run. When he feels that the danger cannot be ignored anymore, he just grapps Olivia and escapes. But running won't save them from either threat, not the werewolves and surely not the person who knows Olivia's every secret, even the ones she doesn't know yet...

Cynthia has done it again! Eden's books are always a must-read for me even when I don't know the synopsis. The purgatory series is a new series bound to keep you at the edge of your seats. Shane is the typical vampire alpha and Olivia is something else. She surely has unexpected secrets that may destroy them all. But that doesn't make her the bad guy. She's a good person that struggles to find the truth that's been hidden from her. Someone knows the truth and is trying the make Olivia part of their team, even without her will. But Shane will do anything to protect the woman he thinks is his mate...

“I don’t need as much blood to survive as other vampires do. Sunlight can never hurt me, but I do have a weakness. One.”

“What’s that?” 


I loved the book! It had a nice flow, gripped my attention from the beggiing till the end, it had action, suspense, romance, lots of paranormal creatures and an unexpected end. This is actually the reason why I love Cynthia : you can never tell the end! She just surprises you everytime. I literally can't wait for the next installment in the series CHARMING THE BEAST, Connor's story maybe with Chloe (releasing later in 2014).

Note : MARKED BY THE VAMPIRE can be read as a stand alone but I'd definitely recommend reading The Wolf Within first, the first book in the series!
