Mara Dyer knows she isn’t crazy. She knows that she can kill with her mind, and that Noah can heal with his. Mara also knows that somehow, Jude is not a hallucination. He is alive. Unfortunately, convincing her family and doctors that she’s not unstable and doesn’t need to be hospitalised isn’t easy. The only person who actually believes her is Noah. But being with Noah is dangerous and Mara is in constant fear that she might hurt him. She needs to learn how to control her power, and fast! Together, Mara and Noah must try and figure out exactly how Jude survived when the asylum collapsed, and how he knows so much about her strange ability…before anyone else ends up dead! – Synopsis from Goodreads.

So, this is the deal: I read this over the course of Friday night/ Saturday day and it has taken me all weekend to recover from the book hangover. I will keep this short and sweet as is the second book in the Mara Dyer Trilogy. If I had to sum this book up in two words, those words would be: MIND SCREW. HOLY CRAP Y’ALL. This poor girl *shakes head* I can’t even … okay, imagine you’re in a dream and you’re pleading your case and no one will listen, no one believes you. It evokes feelings of suffocating or drowning. That is how you feel the whole time you’re reading this book.

When I finished, I was tempted to throw the book across the room but I didn’t because a) I didn’t want to damage said book and 2) I didn’t want to accidentally hit my cat. I was partly mad because of the fact that the third doesn’t come out until November of this year!!! and because I didn’t want it to end. Not like that. *sigh*

So, I urge you to read the first novel and know that you will NOT suffer from SBS {the dreaded Second Book Syndrome}. It’s so good and so gut wrenching and so suspenseful. Just…read it. You’re welcome.
