Author: Michelle Hodkin
Reviewed by: Cassie
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy/Romance/Thriller/Mystery)

Summary (from

Mara Dyer wants to believe there's more to the lies she's been told.
There is.

She doesn't stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead.
She should.

She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance.

Retribution has arrived.

My thoughts starting the book:

My thoughts while reading the book:

My thoughts finishing it:

The good:
-kept me on my toesies

-I love me some crazy... and Mara went crazy. Like so.

-Michelle Hodkin = fantastic writer
-devoured this book

The questionable:
-NOAH. WHAT THE HECKS. I started this baby thinking I would get my Noah fix, and let me just tell you... I was left hanging FOR TOO LONG!! Jesus, how many pages did I read, thinking "okay, this is fun and all... But give me my Noah Shaw, dammit."
Noah Shaw in all his glory. (or Max Irons if you prefer)
And then when he finally decided to make an appearance, I was... dismayed. Disappointed? Distressed.... Dis-SOMETHING. Where was my beautiful, tortured, sarcastic and adorable book boyfriend?? ME = ANGRY

-The ending.

As in, Michelle Hodkin, did you really just do that?
Somehow I feel... betrayed? And that it was cliche.
I'll still reread the series. Probably.

Cheers!!! Hugs and kisses,
