The Retribution of Mara Dyer

The Retribution of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin Author had some guts stringing things out as long as she did, and it's pretty impressive how much she did manage to tie off in by the end. Unfortunately, stringing the mysteries along so long felt like it built expectations up higher than any grand reveal could meet. I liked this story better when it was unrealistic teen wish-fulfillment, and while I can appreciate the complexity of the resolution on an intellectual level, the entertainment value did drop somewhat. Still, a great debut trilogy; looking forward to more from this author!
