Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.
She used to think her problems were all in her head.
She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?
I’m convinced Michelle Hodkin is evil.
Thoughts on The Evolution of Mara Dyer
I’m convinced that Michelle Hodkin is evil. And that she writes a damn good book.
When I finished book one, all the way back in 2011, I remember wanting to reread it as soon as I finished. Like Unbecoming, The Evolution of Mara Dyer is confusing and addictive. I’m not really sure what happened, but I know I need more of it. Despite the long span between books, I had no problems reorienting myself in Mara’s world; the recapping is subtle and effective.
I’m torn about this book: it was full of non-answers and being jerked around, and yet, I didn’t care. I knew it, and it didn’t matter. Noah and Mara chase answers for what’s happening to Mara (seriously, WHAT is happening?) and one answer only leads to a million more. Approximately. It had me turning pages and reading as fast as I could.
Mara’s world is intriguing. Paranormal, with a heavy dose of “maybe it’s just all in Mara’s head.” But it’s not. Is it? WHAT IS GOING ON? (Rinse. Repeat.)
The mystery only deepens in The Evolution of Mara Dyer, and the thread that began in Unbecoming is unraveling more and faster now. But we still don’t have answers. (Or do we? There are too many unknowns, but just enough unknowns to keep us propelling forward because, seriously, WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MARA?)
I think, maybe, I said that The Evolution of Mara Dyer would make or break my enjoyment of the series at a whole. And I think it makes it. I need the third book. And then, when I’ve read the entire trilogy, I want to read the books all over again.
