Ever since I finished reading Michelle Hodkin’s beautiful and intense Mara Dyer Trilogy I have not stopped crying about how much I love Noah Shaw and I know I’m not alone in this. Fellow Mara Dyer readers, it’s OK, I wish he was real too.
So, cue the excitement and fangirlish screams when I heard that not only is Michelle Hodkin writing more novels, but that these books are going to be a spin-off to Mara Dyer and that they are going to be told from Noah’s point of view. It doesn’t get much better than that!
In the release, Hodkin said “When I wrote the first words of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I knew that I was writing an anti-heroine’s original story. What I didn’t know was how many readers would ask for the adventures of that anti-heroine and her hero: both powerful, both in love, and almost certain to destroy each other. I always wanted to tell the story of the choices the characters would make and the risks they would take after they discovered who and what they really were, and I’m thrilled to finally have that chance. Readers may think they know Noah Shaw, but there’s so much more to tell.”
The first book in The Shaw Confessions series is expected to hit bookshelves in Summer 2017 and will explore what happens to Mara and Noah after the happily ever after. By the end of the Mara Dyer Trilogy, Noah Shaw and Mara Dyer discovered their world-changing abilities along with their love for each other. In the first book of The Shaw Confessions, Noah’s father is murdered, and Noah inherits unimaginable riches, terrible knowledge, and the chance to find other people like himself.
But as Noah and Mara begin their global search, they’ll discover that they have very different goals: Noah wants peace. Mara wants power. When the girl of your dreams turns the world into a nightmare, what do you choose? The girl or the world?
Hodkin teased that “It’s going to be dark. It’s going to be twisted. It’s going to be sexy.”
Sign me up! I can’t wait!
If the announcement of more Noah Shaw also has you bursting with excitement (and perhaps wishing that we could just skip 2016 and get to Summer 2017 already) then join me over on my book blog as I relive the 10 Times Everyone Fell in Love with Noah Shaw and prepare to swoon!
