Also present: Mr. [redacted]

KELLS: Hello, Mara. My name is Deborah Kells, and this is Mr. ____. We’re here because your family says that you have agreed to residential treatment at the Horizons Residential Treatment Center for Behavioral Health on No Name Island, Florida, just off No Name Key. Is that correct?

KELLS: How much Amytal did you give her?

MR. ____: Forty ccs.

KELLS: Anemosyne?

MR. ____: One hundred micrograms.

KELLS: And the midazolam?

MR. ____: Fifty milligrams. Same as the others. She won’t remember any of this.

KELLS: God, she’s like a zombie. Mara, Mara—are you awake? Do you understand me?

MARA: . . . Yes.

KELLS: Great. Thank you. Is it correct that you agreed to being treated here?

MARA: Yes.

KELLS: Thank you. Now, if at anytime you don’t understand what I’m asking you, just let me know and I’ll try to make it clearer, okay?

MARA: Okay.

KELLS: Now, you’ll notice that there’s a video camera in the room here with us. We want to record this just so we have a record. Is that okay with you?

MR. ____: She might not be as cooperative.

KELLS: Well, she’s not exactly cooperative now, is she?

MR. ____: I’ll have to do it intravenously—

MR. ____: Claire Lowe, yes, as well as her brother, Jude Lowe—

Mara: Noah.

MR. ____: Noah Shaw? I don’t—

KELLS: Quiet.

MR. ____: Sorry—whoa. Did you see that? She just—

KELLS: What else is she on?

MR. ____: The hundred milligrams of Zyprexa, as prescribed prior to intake. It shouldn’t interfere.

KELLS: Is she on anything else?

MR. ____: I don’t—

KELLS: Is she on anything else?

MR. ____: No. No.

KELLS: Does she have a history of epilepsy?

MR. ____: I don’t think so.

KELLS: Well, do you think or do you know?

MR. ____: No— Jesus Christ. Is that a seizure? Is she seizing?

KELLS: Turn off the camera.

MARA: [speech unclear]

KELLS: What did you say, Mara?

MR. ____: I’m going to call—

KELLS: Don’t call anyone. Turn off the camera. What, Mara?

MARA: [speech unclear]

MR. ____: Did she just say our names? Did she just say—

KELLS: TURN OFF THE CAMERA.

MR. ____: Oh, God—

    Wonderful finale

    This book was the perfect ending to surprisingly great trilogy. I stumbled on to it by accident. Am very happy that I did.

    This series is probably my favorite. The writing is beautiful and you fall in love with every character. Though flawed, the characters are believable. If you had gone through half of what Mara did, you would probably make some questionable decisions too. I like that Mara and the other characters make mistakes and aren't always "good" people. That's reality and, in the end, that's what makes these characters so lovable and relatable. This was the perfect ending to the series. It's not perfect. They don't all live happily ever after, but it still leaves you satisfied which doesn't always happen at the end of a series. I am truly sad to see the end of these books...I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

    Seems Like A Different Cast of Charaters

    I had high expectations goimg into this book. I really enjoyed the first two books prior to this, and even preordered the book I was so excited. However The Retribution of Mara Dyer was lacking. I found myself extremely distant and uncaring while reading this book. The characters I spent two whole books getting to know felt COMPLETELY different. The psycho nature that was a important part in the previous two books was overwhelming in this one. It became sociopathic at many parts that was uncomfortable for me. I couldn't find myself connecting with any of the charaters, most of all Mara. I think alot of the sociopathic tendenices of Mara were wildly understated by the other charaters, and while Michelle Hodkin might have intended to have this polarizing affect on her readers I couldn't find a way to look past the cross over from slightly crazy to outright sociopath. Unlike some similar works that divulge into sociopaths, like the television show Dexter for example, I could no longer find any redeeming qualities in Mara, and by the end of the book I was disgusted with her. I also had hopes for the romantic aspects from the last two books, but as I started to realize in The Evolution of Mara Dyer. This book is NOT a love story, though the Michelle Hodkin seems to want the readers to believe otherwise. In the last book, if you were unsure in the second book, that Mara and Noah don't love one another they have a werid dependency and obessiin with one another. It's an uncomfortably written and awkardly translated somehow into love by the readers and author alike. On second thought I don't think I ever truly believed in Noah and Mara's "love". Overall I am highly disappointed in this book. I feel that it had potential to be an amazing trilogy had not had the whole last be centered around dehumanizing the main charater, Mara.

    Disappointing End to an Otherwise Entertaing Series

    Book one and two had the cliche high school paranornmal romance themes, but were still highly entertaining. Mara was an interesting character and while Noah was basically the cliche cool and brooding love interest the premises of the book still kept you interested. Book three was just a bunch of long drawn out and pointless events. The end tried to be this great big twist, but it just seemed like the author tried making this intricate plot and then just confused herself so she just copped out with an easy ending. I expected the ending to be cheesy, but it wasn't even cheesy it was just nonsense.

    Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books

    It dawned on me when I had about 100 pages left in this book that it is going to be extremely hard, practically impossible even, to write a review for this book. At least one that's spoiler free. But I'm going to give it everything I have and see what happens. If you're reading this I manged to come up with something. Yay me!

    --I've had weird dreams. I've had weird hallucinations. But weird didn't even begin to touch this, whatever this was.

    I never expected to get as attached to this series as I have. But from the moment I picked up The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, through every word and every sentence and every paragraph I fell deeper and deeper into this twisted, dark, hauntingly beautiful story. The intensity, the darkness, the complete mind [censored] has been steadily building since the very first book. It rarely lets up and I often found myself wondering if I myself was going to come out of this series sane. Truly I've had some very strange dreams.

    --I should have been more frightened than I was. I should have been terrified. But I just felt like I was watching all of this happen to someone else.

    At the start of each sequel I would think there's no way I could handle things getting any worse than they did previously. Yet there was no way in hell I could even think about putting them down. The more twisted it got the faster I would push myself to get to the next page. To say Retribution was the most shocking would be an understatement. The depths of darkness that this book went to had me absolutely hopeless throughout most of it. Doubting an ending could be possible that I would find satisfying.

    --Jamie held a slice in each hand and was looking back and forth between them. "I want to double-fist the [censored] out of this pizza."

    Even when things look bleak Michelle Hodkin manages to sneak in moments that had me laughing out loud. I am in love with her writing style You name an emotion and she has more than likely managed to pull that out of me within this series. I will read anything this woman writes. No, truly. If she published a book of nothing but old grocery lists I would be rushing to buy it. I have fangirled and shouted about how much I've loved this book or that book in the past, but this series was so different for me. It's that one. The one. The one that has me sitting here wondering how am I ever going to pick up another book and feel that same enjoyment and level of emotions. Yeah, it seems I'm slightly obsessed. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go wallow in this book hangover. They should make a patch for that, one that pumps you full of endorphins to help get you over the hump.

    A good end to a captivating series.

    To be honest, i was dreading reading this installment because of the amount of terrible final installments Ive read this past year. Divergent's final installment pissed me off and I was scared to read this one fearing something similar would happen but it didnt. Hodkin concluded it very well and I was very content with the ending. I really love this trilogy, the development of the characters in it is so well written and the story is so unique. I love how the novels switch between genres, romance, psychological thriller, horror. But in the end you understand. Well you undertand what you need to understand. I love the ending lines. I found myself going back to the first novel to see if she really said what she said. The linking of events was well done, explanations were well done. You know those moments when you go 'OHHH so that is why tha happened' I experienced quite a lot of those and i love that in a novel, when things tie up neatly. Beautiful trilogy. Would reccommend to much more people.

    Purely amazing

    I have read the trilogy in entity twice now and I doubt that'll be it. One crazy roller coaster of every emotion, even some your think were possible come out of you when you read Michelle Hodkins books. I smiled and cried and fell in love with every one of her characters. She is a genius and I will gladly ready her grocery list. Or even her text messages to her mother, because I can't imagine anything she ever says isn't worth reading.

    I will continue to recommend this trilogy to everyone i know!

    I was really disappointed by this book. I enjoyed the first two a lot and thought the last one would be great, but really it just got weird, and I felt like it turned into a different genre of book. Idk I just didn't care for this one as much. Ending was predictable and boring.

    An enjoyable read!

    Okay so maybe this deserves a 4.5 stars! I would give it 5 because it ended happily.. God I was terrified that it won't. For some reason i was just scared. I don't think I can describe how I feel about this third book in particular. I mean it did answer some questions though made me question others at the beginning.
    Noah and Daniel were my favorite characters obviously I was so relived that her brother suspected something and had a role in uncovering the truth. I didn't like that her mom and her dad didn't have an active role in the end. I guess u can't have everything. I really loved this trilogy and even though I couldn't wait to finish it I didn't want to. I needed to take 5 minutes to just absorb what I just finished. I think this is going to be stuck with me for a while. I love this. I love how it made me feel. I didn't think I liked paranormal/thriller/fantasy if u say so but this is an exception indeed.

    This novel met and exceeded my expectations. It was a fantastic

    This novel met and exceeded my expectations. It was a fantastic conclusion to a riveting story. The characters in this book were so wonderfully flawed, and the plot kept me hooked. It was a long novel, but I never was bored. The pacing was perfect, and there was just enough mystery/intrigue to keep me guessing. The ending surprised me a bit because it wasn't what you'd expect from a novel. Nothing about this book, or trilogy, was predictable, and I really enjoyed that. 




    I really liked how the characters of this book weren't heroes or villains. I think that's more realistic than someone who's completely good or bad. Each character was complex and had his or her own story to tell. Sometimes it was hard to root for Mara because she was such a dark character, but at the same time, there was something so human about her that you could still relate to her, even when she was doing horrific things. Mara's ability really makes you question what you'd do if you had it. Noah was also extremely complex and dark and twisted. I really loved the two of them together. Daniel was another favorite, and he didn't turn out how I thought he would at all. 




    Mara and Noah's relationship was complicated and destructive and messy. I absolutely loved it. It wasn't pretty, and that was refreshing. Their love wasn't this wonderful thing, it would destroy them in the end. I felt like that was one of the most realistic portrayals of love I'd ever read. Also, Hodkin's writing was beautiful. The plot was tragic and amazing, and the ending wasn't happy, but it was conclusive. I felt like all the loose ends were tied up, and while things weren't completely finalized, it was clear that happily ever after wasn't in the cards. I liked that because life doesn't have a happily ever after, either. However, the ending wasn't completely depressing, and it left me with a bit of hope. 




    Overall, I'd recommend this book and series for people who want to read something that will make them think and question themselves. This book was a wonderful conclusion to a unique and captivating story.
