The Mark allows you to buy food, go to concerts, get a job and be a productive member in a unified country. Everyone gets The Mark on their 13th birthday. There is nothing to fear in getting The Mark. At least that is what everyone tells Logan. But Logan’s sister Lily never returned from getting her Mark. Logan’s family was told that sometimes the process doesn’t agree with a person. Since that time Logan has felt like he is being watched.
Erin and her father move to Spokie from Beacon City. Erin doesn’t know what her father’s job entails; just that it is “government work”. Erin meets Logan at school and they soon become friends. Logan tells her his fear that he is being followed and watched. Soon the two of them are hot on the trail of the notorious group known as The Dust. The Dust is a group of Markless people that are outcasts of society. The government is looking for their leader named Peck.
Logan and Erin cannot figure out why Peck is after him. They just know that there have been kidnappings going on of certain unmarked people and that Logan may be the next victim.
Swipe was a fast read and I found it interesting. I found though that there were parts that were a little bit confusing. Either I missed how The Mark was put into place or it wasn’t stated. And there is a lot of mystery surrounding DOME which I hope will be more understood in the next book. I’m looking forward to reading Sneak to find out what happens next.
