From Goodreads: “The truth about Mara Dyer’s dangerous and mysterious abilities continues to unravel in the New York Times bestselling sequel to the thrilling The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. 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?”
I read the first book of this trilogy on holiday last October, and while not the most amazing book I’ve ever read I enjoyed it enough. I decided a few months ago to finish reading the trilogies I started last year and this one was next on the list.
This book was OK. Just OK though. I blazed through book one but this one just didn’t grip me enough that I couldn’t put it down.
The initial progress of the storyline was good and felt like it was really going somewhere, but somewhere around the middle I felt as though this book lost its way a little bit and the final act just felt somewhat rushed.
I’m going straight into book three now after finishing, but honestly I don’t have the highest hopes for the conclusion. This is book two, and I know there’s a lot of threads left open that need tying up in the conclusion, but I have no idea where this series can go from here.
I guess we shall see.
My rating: 5.5/10
