In the first book of the Shaw Confessions, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, old skeletons are laid bare and new promises prove deadly. This is what happens after happily ever after.
Everyone thinks seventeen-year-old Noah Shaw has the world on a string.
Mara Dyer is the only one he trusts with his secrets and his future.
And both are scared that uncovering the truth about themselves will force them apart.
I don't even know...
This book was depressing.
Noah was kinda boring, also in full on ostrich-sticking-head-in-sand syndrome.
Noah was depressing to read.
(I get that's kind of the point because he is depressed, but still.
I miss Mara, she was more interesting, especially now that she is fully manifested. Unfortunately, we don't get much of anyone else at all except for Noah.
The plot was...I don't even know!
I mean there was a stuff happening...kind of, but the characters weren't actually doing much of anything about it, till the last like 15%.
Too much shit happened in the last 15%.
And guess what? Not only do we not have any answers but there are so many more questions. It would have been nice if there was like, idk, a single book arc, and an overarching series plot arc, and oh, I don't know, have a resolution for the single book arc? Is that too much to ask?
This book just felt like a huge filler.
Am I going to read the next one? Yes, because I need freaking answers and I kinda want to know what crazy shit Hodkin is going to come up with next.
