The truth about Mara Dyer's dangerous and mysterious abilities continues to unravel in this gripping sequel to the thrilling "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer." One week after Mara walked into a police station in Miami at the close of "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer," she has been committed to psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe was a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, deeply disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But when no one believes the truth, Mara is totally helpless. The only person on her side is Noah Shaw, as sexy and handsome as he is loyal and cunning. Noah is the only person who can help Mara--as long as he doesn't get himself killed in the process.Look at that exquisite piece of art called The Evolution of Mara Dyer cover. It's gorgeous. I love the color, love the scene, and love that it matches perfectly with The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. They are going to look beautiful on a shelf together.
As I mentioned in my review of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer I love dark heroines. Ones that fascinate readers by their twisted logic and tragic flaws. Mara Dyer happens to be one of them, and I can't get enough of her. She's messed up in the best way. And her boy, Noah Shaw, is one swoon-worthy fellow.
Although The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer scared the sauce out of me, I loved it. I couldn't look in the mirror for days, and jumped at every sound; it messed with my head that much. I can't wait to dive back into the story, especially after the final events of the last novel! Disturbed heroines, hot boys, and one terrifying plot line? Sign me up.
