Cover Reveal: The Evolution of Mara Dyer (#2) by Michelle Hodkin

It's the cover we've all been waiting for since last year's stunning The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.

If you need a reminder:

A thing of beauty

After many minutes of rabid refreshing, Simon and Schuster finally unveiled book 2, The Evolution of Mara Dyer (hitting shelves October 23 aka TOO FAR AWAY):

First of all, YAY they kept the same theme and photographer! The underwater theme is dark and haunting, just like the first book. I also love how they seem to be images in a sequence. It has evolved (cough) from them holding each other, to them being ripped apart but straining to hang on.

I also kind of love how you never get to see their faces. It keeps the air of mystery, and is also fitting since "Mara Dyer" is writing her story under a pseudonym (to protect the guilty?)

I also love the shift in color. Book one was green, and book two is blue... which seems darker and sadder to me.

Also, in case you missed it in all the cover excitement, there's a synopsis on Goodreads!

Two days after Mara walks into a police station in Miami at the close of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, she is committed for psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe is a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But she's about to discover that the price is more than she can bear.

Dark and thrilling, suspenseful and passionate, The Evolution of Mara Dyer will have readers breathlessly turning pages to find out what will become of Mara Dyer next.

Yes yes yes! Gimme gimme gimme! The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was my most anticipated read last year, and The Evolution of Mara Dyer holds that title this year. This series is AH-MAZ-ING, and if you haven't read book one yet, what on earth are you waiting for?!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is on sale for $6.80 on Amazon!

The Evolution of Mara Dyer is available for preorder now!

How about you? What do you think of the newest cover in this stunning series?

What a great cover! So beautiful and, as you said, haunting. (Though to be fair I was going to use that word anyway, even before I saw that you used it...)

I STILL haven't read the first Mara Dyer book. It's sitting on my shelf...but I haven't had time to read it yet. :( This summer though!!!

Sooooo looking forward to this book! And I love the "evolution" of the cover. A lot of meaning in them reaching for eachother like that.

In the first book though, he's holding her up. In the second, she's reaching to pull him out. In the first book, he's trying to teach her something about herself--just as if he's holding her. So what will their relationship be like in the second book?

I'm so hoping she finds some kind of self acceptance.
