I couldn’t figure out this book. The entire time I was reading I was trying to figure out what on earth was making Mara do what she did and it was killing me. I have to give huge props to Michelle Hodkin for writing a story as engaging and interesting as this one. I basically loved pretty much everything about this book. The mystery, the characters, the writing, the story. The setting was introduced very well and the staging throughout for what was going on was fabulous ,especially the staging. The staging for the actual story line, like how Mara figures out what she is, is kind of too easy, but oh well. The writing was engaging and flowing and humorous, and I loved it. The ending was killer! I was literally just sitting on my front porch gasping and gesturing at my book in plain view of my neighbors haha. But I didn't care, I'm a book nerd.
This cast...wow. I'm just trying to think of a sexier love interest than Noah Shaw, and I'm finding it very hard. It's weird to say that a fictional character has sex appeal...but he does. And he's British, which, in my opinion, makes you 60% sexier. Yes, 60%. exactly ;P Basically Noah is amazing, sexy, perfect, ugh. I want him. I loved Mara as well. I loved her spunk, personality, sass, and big mouth. She was crazy, yes, but awesome at the same time.
After that ending I need to read the next book like now. Right now!
