The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin

The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin
This is a young adult science fiction/ paranormal fantasy?? series (PG-13)
 (Four Crazy Good Hearts)
Book Summary
(taken from the first book in series)
Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.
There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's wrong.
My Review
I picked up this series because I got a deal on the first book from audible. It took me a while to read it. And while at first I wasn’t exactly into the story, it did take hold of me about 45% into the first book. After that, I was totally invested and power read through the series as all the books were available. That’s the beauty of reading a series when it’s complete.
First calling this paranormal is a stretch because this isn’t about vampires or werewolves. Or even demons or angels. I think this is more of a science fiction fantasy than a traditional paranormal book.
Mara has issues and no one believes her. This storyline can get frustrating as the reader knows she’s telling the truth. To have everyone around her not believe her can make for a hard read at times. Thank goodness for Mara’s brother. I think this is one the few times where a sibling especially a brother is the hero to his sister and makes such a huge impact on a story. And you have to love him for that.
But Noah wins me over by book two. And I think that’s my favorite book in the series. Book three is full of action and adventure but is largely missing Noah. And for the most part, because the story is moving, you don’t miss him too much.
Overall, I would recommend this one. There is a good story of love, trust, courage, overcoming obstacles, and adventures. I wish I could get more of the future of Noah and Mara without all of the other stuff.
Audio Review
Christy Romano did a wonderful job with the narration.
