I found The Evolution of Mara Dyer to be:


  • A Wonderful Sequel 
  • Highly Emotional 

The Evolution of Mara Dyer was fantastic.


This book took everything you thought you knew about Mara’s world and tossed it about. With the way the first book ended, the reader was in a place where the unreliable narrator suddenly became less reliable since nothing she knew to be true was for sure anymore.

There were a few things that I figured out along the way, well before Mara and crew did, but there were even more twists and turns that I never saw coming.


Mara’s already unsteady ground became even riskier in The Evolution of Mara Dyer because she lost what little safety ground she had and risked losing even more of her freedom. Only one person seemed to believe her, and even Noah was holding things back from her. Mara’s family thought she was a danger to herself, and the psychiatric team at Horizon’s watched and waited for her to slip up.

Even though Mara did have people who loved and cared for her, you couldn’t help but feel her isolation because they didn’t believe her. She knew the events in the first book, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, were true and really happened, even it she couldn't prove it. Mara wasn’t even able to be completely mad at them because she knew they truly cared for her.

I really felt a lot for Mara in this book.


Overall

Overall, there isn’t much I can say about this book without giving things away for the series, but I will say that I thought The Evolution of Mara Dyer was one of my favorite sequels I’ve ever read. It didn’t fall into any of the pitfalls or rely on any second book tropes to carry it through.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer took the world and characters I loved from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and expanded it, turning what I thought I knew into something else.

Official Judgement

If you like thrillers with a paranormal twist, I highly recommend the Mara Dyer series to you.
