Books 3 & 4: The Evolution of Mara Dyer, The Retribution of Mara Dyer

Finally, I’ve finished reading the trilogy…

I just don’t like the idea of being hanging in the open, that is why I forced myself to finish the story. What I have said about the first book remains true, though – that it is quite an intriguing read. Mara and Noah, and this time including their schoolmate and friend, Jamie are all humans, except for them bearing an abmormal gene that makes them extraordinary. It reminded me of the movie Hannah.

It is just so frustrating in Mara’s part to be considered a freak. Thing is, in the real world, no one’s really gonna believe her about her extraordinariness. It’s just so lucky of her to have a big brother Daniel, who was always there for her. I didn’t like the fact that there are some scenes in the story that I don’t think necessary. And why is it that Noah’s point of view suddenly pops up in the last book?

I couldn’t ignore Noah and Mara’s romantic banter. Their words, especially Noah’s, were almost similar to those of Edward Cullen’s (which most probably made me go gaga over that series long before everybody did, and I am gladly over it now). I would say I’d see a movie with a plot like this one, but reading it just bore the hell out of me (sorry). But if you’re into science fiction/romance mix, then maybe this is just the book for you.
