The Evolution of Mara Dyer

Release Date: October 23rd, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Number of Pages: 272
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.
Yes, I know. I wasn't the biggest fan of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but I feel like the plot for the first book was very good, except it got bogged down by a bad romance (ra ra a a a, roma rom a a), so I have an inch of hope that Hodkin will focus more on the plot in this book than the romance. And, with an ending like the first book's, how could you not want to read this? The Evolution of Mara Dyer could be absolutely awesome - if Hodkin doesn't bog the blog down with a romance again. *crosses fingers*
