It’s that time, Mara Dyer fans. The countdown to The Retribution of Mara Dyer, the final installment in Michelle Hodkin’s dark and twisty trilogy, has begun and we’re going to kick it off with an exclusive cover reveal and details about the release date.

Last we heard from Mara, she was trapped in a hospital at the mercy of those who would use her. She’d brought down yet another building with her mysterious powers. And the love of her life was (supposedly) dead by her hands. Still, she vowed she wouldn’t allow herself to be helpless. She would fight. She would win. And she would see Noah again. But Mara never imagined how far she’d go for vengeance — or what it would cost her. Check out the cover for The Retribution of Mara Dyer below:


Onto the juicy release details: The Retribution of Mara Dyer will have a one-day laydown of Oct. 22. There will be no Advanced Reader Copies — everyone will get to see the book on the same day. So start planning your midnight parties!
