The Retribution of Mara Dyer
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Content warnings: death, murder, blood, gore, mentions of self harm, mentions of sex, mentions of attempted rape, non consensual experimental testing, medical drug mentions that render person incapacitated, abusive behaviour towards homeless people

This was a ride. And I DON’T remember the two books before this one. At all. Well I kind of do now but it took a little over half the book to remember.

I like the bits of equating sex and orgasms to seeing colours. Because that is a thing that does happen to some people. And it’s nice to see it represented in a book.

I both liked and disliked the alternating viewpoints in the book. It confused me. It was great that when the viewpoint changed the chapter explicitly mentioned it (before the chapter started under the chapter number). It helped a lot with me.

Oh and the mentions of the slight racism issues wasn’t exactly great either. Nor was the comment about a female being particularly snarky being on her period. SO SICK OF THAT.

If you’re not big into the teens with unexplained powers thing, DO NOT READ THIS SERIES. That is part of the plot of this series.

In fact, I can’t fully recommend this series unless you’re already invested in it. It was enjoyable yeah but if you’re not invested in the series you’re not going to enjoy it.
