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?

Being a huge fan of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer I had no doubts that I would thoroughly enjoy it's sequel as well. Going into reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer I forgot just how amazing Michelle Hodkin really is. Seriously, the is not a single flaw I can pinpoint. This book was amazing right from the beginning.
In The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer we were left off on a major cliffhanger, that Jude was alive. This caused for a really intense read, but throughout you are left wondering if he really is back or is Mara imagining it. The psychological thriller aspect is still a major theme in this book, and it a large reason in why I love it so much. It makes the book really unique and with the paranormal parts to the book Mara Dyer is a one of a kind.
What I enjoyed the most about the Evolution of Mara Dyer though was that we get to see Mara and Noah's relationship grow and thrive. They really are the cutest couple, even if they do have quite a few personal issues. Noah's also in my top 3 book boyfriends. I just can't get enough of him, I love him. Also I like how now that we know they have some sort of power, we get to see what they can do with it. The idea of others having powers is also brought out which is always interesting.
I don't know what else I can say about this 100% amazing book, except that I loved it! Warning: if you think the cliffhanger in The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is bad, this one is worse.. I didn't know if I should cry in anguish or scream for book three now!! I ended up doing both. The wait is going to be unbearable. If you haven't read the available books in this series yet, please do so. I can't recommend them enough. Truly amazing.


  1. OMG, the cliffhanger is worse?! AHHH!!! I hear ya on the psychological thriller aspect of this book, it just keeps you right there, wondering. There need to be more books like this. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Your review makes me even more anxious! Thanks! :)

  2. This sequel was so much more compelling than the first. The first book was awesome, but this one was that much more! The cover is great too!

  3. I am with Jessica about the cliffhanger!!!! I have a really hard time with them, especially knowing it will probably be about a year before we find out what happens LOL
