Series: Mara Dyer #2
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Summary: Mara Dyer finally lost it enough to be sent to Horizon where a doctor Kell was supposed to help her. Instead she was put through test to find a cure for what she is and found out more about her abilities. Mara now has to try to find answers and escape Horizon hopefully without losing her mind.
My first thoughts while reading this was that it was a great second book. It picked up right after the first one, and kept up the suspense and pace. In this one we were told a little more about how Mara and others like in her Horizon have there “gifts.” There is a lot of science talk and some of it went over my head. However I really still enjoyed this second book. Especially since a certain character that was taken away in the first one is back.
I enjoyed reading about inside Hoizon even though Dr. Kell’s one sick lady. You can tell she is a scientist and want more facts on this gene that she’ll do anything. She doesn’t believe she is doing anything wrong, but helping these kids. So the kids at Horizon some are okay others are really sick and can be dangerous.
Also there is Noah and Mara relationship that is more developed this time around. Noah is still Mara’s boaster when she get’s down on herself and the guy with a plan. I always loved that about their relationship and how Noah knows that Mara has done some bad things.That has lead her to this point, but still love her and boast her up when she’s at her lowest.
That ending though was crazy how could it not be. It was everything that a final showdown should be and I cant wait to get the Retribution of Mara Dyer. The end was not quick and it left me with a strong want to read the final book. For both answers and just to see what they could possible do next.
Can’t wait to read the retribution of Mara dyer because that cliffhanger got me to buy the kindle version of the third book. Read the trilogy if you haven’t already their really good stories.
