Before you roll your eyes at what you may consider to be yet another YA dystopia read you can be reassured that The Mark by Edyth Bulbring isn t cast in the same mould as The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins as so many recent releases have been Instead the work has a grittier scratchy behind the eyes feel that one would expect with George Orwell s 1984 Ettie also known as Juliet Seven isn t the special girl with the super abilities who is going to save the world and overthrow the evil ruling elite She s no one She s a drudge a young woman fated to work in a menial job until she s only fit for the Reject Dump Her Mark which she desperately tries to remove throughout means she s trapped in the roles cast for her by othersWe discover a world that is as Bulbring puts it Post Conflagration What exactly went wrong we don t find out but it s beside the point Humanity and nearly all the life on the planet apart from flies have been driven to the edge of extinction The Machine is all that keeps mankind going regulating a rigid caste system in which only a few are lucky enough to number among the Elite The sun is no longer a life giving source of light and any who do not play by the rules in this harsh world are deemed Savage and cut off from societyWhen not training for her future in service of the elite Ettie is also part of a criminal underground that scams the Posh and she makes no excuses for behaviour nor does she possess many redeeming ualities beyond her rigorous self interest Though she s clearly not a nice person and some of her nasty comments are true gems her devotion to her friend and companion Kitty whom she will go to the ends of the earth to protect shines through and also her love of literature that transports her to magical worlds so vastly different from the reality in which she is immersed The main theme throughout the story is that of escape and not being satisfied with preordained lots Ettie s attempts to break free from an oppressive system lead her through many unpredictable twists and turns as soon as I thought I knew which direction Bulbring was going to take readers she confounded my expectations The Mark is a fast paced gritty and uncomfortable read and Bulbring maintains a cracking pace blending elements of SF dystopia with nuances of magical realism Pick this one up if you re looking for something slightly different
