She used to think her problems were all in her head.
She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?
My rating: 2.25 of 5 stars

This book and I? We did not get on.
I ended the first book not knowing what was going on, and thinking that Mara was most likely suffering from paranoid delusions, I hoped that this book would clear at least some things up, but it was so freaking dull I barely made it through it.
I have to say that I also had issues with the believability of this book. (view spoiler)[ I just don’t buy that Jude survived an asylum collapsing on him, I don’t buy that Mara has some rare gene disorder and that she’s been part of a trial, and even if I did accept that Mara had this weird gene disorder, I definitely don’t buy that her boyfriend and ex-boyfriend both have the same rare genetic disorder! I mean how freaking unlikely is that? Are you freaking kidding me?!
I have a big issue with books with a paranormal aspect where suddenly everybody in the story has some sort of paranormal talent. It just doesn’t fly with me, and it makes the whole thing that much less believable. This book most definitely suffered from this. (hide spoiler)]
Issues of believability aside, this book dragged, and dragged, and dragged some more. We didn’t get any answers, we just got more weird things going on, with zero explanation as to what was really happening, and then we got (view spoiler) freaking happening? I mean really? Give me a break! As if we needed more freaking madness in this book?![ weird query past-life flashbacks (hide spoiler)]
I got so irritated with this book, it dragged, it was irritating, it had a lack of answers (again) and it was just dull! Ugh! Not impressed.
4.5 out of 10
