Noah Shaw confesses all in this second novel of a chilling new companion series to Michelle Hodkin’s New York Timesbestselling Mara Dyer trilogy!
Noah Shaw doesn’t think he needs his father’s inheritance.
Noah believes there’s something off about the suicides in his visions.
Noah is convinced that he still knows the real Mara Dyer.
He does not.
Everyone thought the nightmare had ended with Mara Dyer’s memoirs, but it was only the beginning. As old skeletons are laid bare, alliances will be tested, hearts will be broken, and no one will be left unscarred.
I was looking forward to this book after the cliffhanger of the previous one, but it was so disappointing.
The main problem with this story was that it didn’t progress the plot. There were some interesting flashbacks to what happened when Noah was in the hospital, which was in the Mara Dyer series. However, there were also flashbacks to Noah’s ancestors, which could have been explained in a couple of sentences, rather than multiple chapters.
I had a hard time keeping track of the characters by the end. There were some new people, but they all seemed the same. They had long drawn-out conversations about the same things over and over. There wasn’t much that actually happened in the story, other than many conversations.
Unfortunately, this book didn’t live up to my expectations. I expected a lot more from the book.
Thank you Simon and Schuster Canada for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
