The day after Thanksgiving, after having prepared a feast for 15 all day the day before, Jeff & I decided to just hang out and relax. For me that meant picking up a book, more specifically The Retribution of Mara Dyer. This book has been sitting on my bookshelf since I picked it up at the library on the day of it’s release (November 4th), just
staring taunting me to pick it up.
I absolutely loved the first two books in the Mara Dyer series! The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was the first book and The Evolution of Mara Dyer was the second. In The Retribution of Mara Dyer the story picks up where we last left off and unlike other series’ where the author spends the first few chapters rehashing the story, Michelle Hodkins just jumps right in. I really like that approach because you’re not wasting paper and insulting your reader to think they can’t jump back into the story by simply dropping little bread crumb hints throughout.
I spent the day jumping from The Keys to Miami to New York as I read this book from cover to cover. I could truly place myself in the story and see the places they were because Jeff & I have been to these locations in the past.
The depth of each character is so well done, you feel like you really know each of them. I haven’t fell so in love with a series since I read Twilight for the first time.
If you’re a fan of the supernatural and you enjoy not-so-simple love stories, I think you may also fall in love with the Mara Dyer trilogy.
