Review: The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.

She can’t.

She used to think her problems were all in her head.

They aren’t.

She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.

She’s wrong.

In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next? – From Goodreads

Just finished reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer and i must say, it hasn’t failed to excite my senses. Michelle Hodkin has a knack for pushing and pulling your senses, a rollercoaster of emotions just as riveting (if not more) as the first book, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.

In this sequel we experience Mara as things slowly start to unravel before her while not failing to explore her relationship with the people around her. Noah started out a little flat, he doesn’t seem to clearly exist outside of Mara’s circle but his character slowly gets undone as the story progresses. I absolutely adore the part where he’s journalizing his thoughts for Mara, as well as his confession to her at their date. We also learn more about Jude and his sinister purposes, as well as other hidden antagonists and perhaps a plot that’s beyond what we first thought of.

There’s a lot more things in this book that is shrouded in mystery, and that just makes the wait for the third book a little unbearable.

5/5 Stars
