Mara Dyer knows she isn't crazy. She knows that she can kill with her mind, and that Noah can heal with his. Mara also knows that somehow, Jude is not a hallucination. He is alive. Unfortunately, convincing her family and doctors that she's not unstable and doesn't need to be hospitalised isn't easy.
The only person who actually believes her is Noah. But being with Noah is dangerous and Mara is in constant fear that she might hurt him. She needs to learn how to control her power, and fast! Together, Mara and Noah must try and figure out exactly how Jude survived when the asylum collapsed, and how he knows so much about her strange ability...before anyone else ends up dead!
Mara Dyer 02
Michelle Hodkins trilogy is off to an absolutely fantastic, compelling start. Dark, intoxicating and haunting, these first two books will have you glued to each page, hanging on the curve of every word. Written in dream-like haze, the story is dark, nightmarish and almost psychotic yet utterly compelling and intoxicating. It leaves the reader unsure of what is real and what is not, questioning the borders of dreams and reality. Climaxes in the story comes at strange, unexpected intervals which cause you to jump out of your seat in both terror and exhilaration, making the overall read climatic, ambiguous and thrilling and the characters, shadowy nightmares, flashbacks and taunts written in blood will keep you up all night with no regard for time, drunk on each word and pining for more. Michelle Hodkin has truly written the work of a genius, and I, for one, am holding on to the edge of my seat in wait of the next release.Reviewed by Xsarea Power
