At first a little confusing then later you start to understand what is going on

I heard a lot of good things about this book. I saw it in my library and decided to pick it up. This is by far the scariest and creepiest book I ever read! I love it!

Picked this book up on a whim and it was great and I couldn't put it down. I really felt apart of Mara as she was trying to figure out what was happening to her. You weren't quite sure what was real or imagined. It did lose me a bit with the powers, but the relationship between Noah and Mara was both sweet and funny. Can't wait for book 2.

I knew nothing of this book when I picked it up. What a great book! Could not put it down! Quick and easy read for me. Saw the influences that Twilight, 50 and even Immortal Instruments had on Hodkin. But they were still unique. The pace was good. Excited to read Evolution!

A great novel! I waited forever to read this book. Now that I have read it I am very happy that I decided to read it! Recommended to those who like romance and paranormal. A great twist of both!

Amazing! Really intense and suspenseful, but at the same time had a sweet romance that balanced it out. Lots of twists and surprises, but DEFINITELY in a good way. Eager for the next book.

really good book. surprising ending. cant wait for the next one to come out. This is a must read for people who like mystery and confusing books. im not a big fan of them but i picked this one up and i liked it. :)

After reading the reviews on this book I couldn't wait to read it. And I was not disappointed. This is an absolutely DELICIOUS book with quite the cliffhanger ending! I liked all the characters, especially the warm relationship Mara had with her older brother Daniel. It is definitely a fictional story but with more meat to it than the traditional YA love story. I found it to be an easy read and one that I could not put down. Now I can't wait to read the next one!

Honestly can't wait for the next book to come out , best book I've read, so exilerating and mesmerizing and just so damn good I got goosebumps reading most of it . The emotions through Maras character just flow through you and it's quite amusing the witty humor and cute conversations with Noah are to die for , I don't want to get my hopes up about the movie though , but they better cover EVERYTHING this book has to be thoroughly portrayed :)

The best book I've read in AGES. It was mesmerizing. I laughed out loud, almost cried, realized I wasn't breathing and smiled stupidly in the space of three pages. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book. It is unique and riveting, and just... so unexpected. I don't want to give anything away but READ IT.
