I read the first of these books (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer) last year, and was very conflicted about it. The writing drove me crazy and the plot seemed to go in a million different directions, but I loved the characters and the book was so much fun to read! I was definitely looking forward to this book despite the flaws in the first one.
The second book is just about the same as the first, for me. The writing still drove me crazy, and the plotting felt like a bizarre “RL Stine meets Harlequin Romance, for Teens” mashup, but I couldn’t stop reading! Loved every minute of it, and I can’t wait for the third book to come out.
